Polka as in Dots not Dance
OMG...speaking of moving on. I wish I was. I'm in limbo and it's driving me nuts. All the professional, licensed moving companies are based in Portland or Vancouver, which is about an hour and a half away. So although we've called and emailed a half-dozen companies, they are not beating down our door with a rapid response. So I'm surrounded in a maze of boxes, stuck here, while the hubby is at our new home working at his new job.
Besides packing, I'm busy selling large furniture items via Craigslist in our downsizing efforts. I'm sure you know how exhausting that the haggling process with email and phone exchanges can be. And unfortunately, I've already fallen prey to one email scammer, so if you get a message from me with a link to some nefarious web site, I apologize in advance and I assure you it's not from me. I'm only selling furniture, not viagra or watches from Hong Kong .....
Anyway, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to add your own flowers to this little girl's baskets! She's in an interesting pose. You might cut her out and put her in a whole new scenario. The text at the bottom is precious:
I am a little child but my tenderness is big. You can judge for yourself by this beautiful offering.
My original postcard was mailed March 31, 1011.
The sender wrote: Cherchez qui vous l'envoie. (Find out who sent this to you.)
Ah, a secret admirer!:)
NOW....as for this week's lucky winner of two free scans -- I had mentioned before that I still haven't officially established my rules on repeat winners, whether I limit it to once a month or what. Well, this week, I had my first repeat winner, so I thought, OK, I think I'll simply "random" click again. Got the SAME number! So the way I figure it: I better not mess around with Fate:) Congratulations again to The Painting Queen!
Crystal, you've got 2 free scans to pick out! Just email me your requests, your choice from either Etsy or Zibbet ,$3.99 or under.
