  5. Such an evocative photograph Niki
    I love to see the parades on Remembrance Sunday but always end up being overcome with emotion.. a mixture of pride and sorrow.

    Hope you are well..

  6. Hi Cynthia,
    Thanks for visiting my blog and also for ordering a copy of my book! - I hope that it gives you many hours of pleasure.
    Sorry, no, Debbie doesn't have a blog - would you believe she doesn't have a computer! She REALLY lives the vintage lifestyle!

  7. Hi there, thanks for taking the time to look over my blog, I feel very honored... I'm sure you have heard of Etsy? I think your things would sell very well on there, if you decide to put some of your pieces on... thanks again..
    Kindest, regards Marion
