Salamanca

The city of Salamanca is only a train
ride away from Madrid. It took about 2
and a half hours. It is a beautiful city,
full of historical buildings. The cathedral
is magnificent, and I particularly liked the
Art Nouveau Museum, Casa Lis.

Tag Tuesday -Eggs


The theme for this week on Tag Tuesday is Eggs. 
I used a pretty image of eggs in a nest from The 
Graphics Fairy. I surrounded it with lace flowers and flower beads, then
placed on green gingham and a red gingham background.
Happy Easter to you all!

Shamrocks for St Patrick' s Day

Here are some shamrocks for St Patrick's Day.
My husband went to a dinner for St Patrick's
Day, and they were all given shamrock buttonholes.
I had never seen a one before,so thought I
would share so you could all see one too.
