Me On Monday

It was a be thankful for what we have kind of a weekend. Almost, you could say, a wake up and smell the roses weekend:



A let's not do very much at all weekend.

The weekend of the postcard. Thank you! Thank you! I have five of my six all in time for a photo today

Beautiful cards from Lesley, Helena, Jacky, Karen T and Mary-Lou. Thank you!


AND way more than my fair share of extras too. Each one is different and special and will be cherished here, you can be sure. At the end of last week, as the postman handed over a brightly coloured clutch of cards, he asked what was going on. How to explain? I wasn't sure. ..

..but then I turned on my laptop. I should have known! my Valentine's weekend was made all the sweeter by the posts about postcards, coming in from all over the world. You nailed it, postcard-ers! Or maybe mailed it? I want to thank every one of you for making it work. You are a thoroughly lovely, decent, reliable, do what you say you are going to do bunch. And that comes with love from me.

Please do browse around the links on Saturday's post (27 and counting - about half of the postcard-ers so far). If you couldn't join in this time, it might persuade you to add your name -oh, in the summer, possibly?

Finally, before I shut up about cards and get back to scrapbooking: if you didn't receive all of your cards, give it another couple of weeks and then, please, get in touch here. I'll make sure to put it right. You'll have six in the end. I guarantee it.

So, Monday, Monday: it's Monday and time to wave at everyone who likes to start the week off with "hello". Last week Helena, Jane, Doris, Karen, Deb, Ladkyis, Rachel B, Fiona, Alison, Krafty Karen and Mel all joined in.Have a great week!

I'm loving all my postcards as they arrive.

helena said...

oh yes I've loved the 4 stages of the postcards - sending, receiving, getting emails or comments from people I sent to and seeing all the activity on blogs

Starnitesky said...

I have loved receiving the postcards, thanks for organising the swap. I am joining you for Me on Monday this week.

Karen said...

The swap has been lots of fun. Later this week, I hope to have the last two, and I get a photo taken! This weekend was the opposite of yours---incredibly busy and incredibly wonderful---more to come.

Jane said...

it's been great fun receiving them x

Jennifer Shaw said...

The postcard exchange has been so much fun! So happy to think that there will be another one in the future. :)

It has been lovely popping around the blogsphere and seeing what's arrived and where :). Great inspiration, Sian. I love the photo of you. I am reminded of Magritte :).

Carmen said...

I'm loving seeing all these postcards arrive and all the happy blog posts.

The flowers are gorgeous - I can almost smell them from here :)

iwillbloom said...

Ooh, I feel so bad.....the post from here is *so terrible*.....I really hope the ones I sent out will arrive soon.......LOL about your postman ;)

joy said...

I cant think how it happened, but I seemed not to be following you for a while, seeing all the lovely posts about postcards made me realize what I had missed, if you do it again I shall definitely put my name down. Joy x x x

Maggie said...

I knew I would wish I had taken part. Lovely flowers...... Still waiting for mine to appear. Perhaps he will get them now they are reduced. It has been known!

Lesley G said...

I have so enjoyed receiving and reading my cards.
Just blogging now.
Thank you Sian for taking the time to organise :) x

KraftyKaren said...

Just waiting for two more to turn up and then I will blog mine. I so wanted to join in this week, took lots of photos all weekend and then yesterday couldn't upload them as something is slightly bent inside the camera and we couldn't connect the camera to PC or laptop. Now need to find someone with a laptop that will take the mini SD card from the camera as I have wedding photos that I need to retrieve. Such lovely flowers and love all your postcards too x

Louise said...

its good to have a weekend where you don't do much at all! The postcard posts are fab too!

KraftyKaren said...

A day late but Mr P has come to the rescue and retrieved my photographs so finally can wave back at you!!

Beverly said...

Your 6th should be there any day, it was mailed last week. I plan on blogging about the ones I received once they have all arrived. Kicking myself for not taking pics of the ones I sent because they were so pretty (to me) :) Your roses are beautiful!

humel said...

So glad you got lots of extras - a well-deserved bonus and thank you from us all! x

Miriam said...

Waving on Wednesday! Lovely, cheery post but I do hope all is well? wake up & smell the roses?
The postcard swap was lovely again. I have mine hanging up on a magnetic rope right here beside me. I do hope all mine arrive at their destination although I fear not, they all had first class stamps on and were posted on the same day that I posted yours. Fingers crossed.

Susanne said...

Well I'd say your weekednd was just coming up roses.

Missus Wookie said...

What a lovely weekend - glad you enjoyed it :)

Melissa said...

What a lovely bunch of flowers for a nice relaxing weekend. I've enjoyed seeing the postcard posts, too, as well as finding them in my mailbox!

Sandra said...

I've loved having the postcards arrive xx

Jo said...

It sounds like a lovely weekend and those postcards are great x

Rachel B said...

Oops I missed that post too! It was such a lovely idea, I really enjoyed doing it :)

Ruth said...

Not sure how I missed this post! Glad to see you got so many extras ... and nice to see mine peeping through!

Karen said...

Hi Sian, thankyou for your postcard for the exchange and thank you also to Sonja/Aberdeen, Kraft Karen, Katie/Southern England, Liz/Katy, Texas and Lizzy Hill/Australia for yours, such a lovely idea, hope to be part of it again. My dog Mara collects the mail from the door and she had a great time over valentines weekend bringing me postcards and getting a biscuit as a 'reward' each time! Mara has asked when is the next postcard exchange!! Love Karen

Gail said...

That's quite a nice collection of postcards!
