Mine is showing signs of use at last- the glittery sparkles are the remains of the Glamour Dust used in the card in the previous post. Laying amongst the sparkle are the ATC's I've received in the last few days.
A Focused Journey).
Here is a larger image of the ATC, so you can see the gorgeous 'cracked glass' effect used on it.
Neet, (top left), Sandra de, (top right)- love the 'WOYWW Fan'! and its funny, we'd already arranged a private swap, and she was actually the person who had to send to me.
Bottom left is from Angela,(Felix the crafty cat), bottom right is from Nann4, and the middle one from Laura R. They are all amazing ladies, thank you all so much.
One picture I forgot to include last week, from one of our walks along the beach at Seaton.
These are known as 'Hag stones' or 'Odin Stones'- they have a hole straight through them, worn that way by the sea. They are said to heal, and offer protection, and almost all fishing boats, especially in the South West of England, will have at least one on board, threaded onto rope, for protection at sea.They were also used by West Country folk for 'protection against malevolent witches'! Another belief is they allow you to see into the world of faerie, or to see the truth behind a glamour.
They are said to bring you luck if you find one. You are supposed to find them 'by chance', by walking over them, rather than specifically searching the beach for them.
Talking of luck, I had the results last week of my liver scan, and it came back completely clear, so that was fantastic news. On Thursday afternoon we have an appointment to see the surgeon at the QE, so it looks as if either the cancer is attached to my tailbone, or he can't be sure from the scan images, so will be doing the surgery just in case.
Either way, I'll update my Cancer page on Friday with whatever info we get.
