Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree

 This weeks SundayPostcardArt was chosen by Sandie and the theme is TRADITIONS

Christmas, for me, is probably the most traditional time. Our family traditions start on Christmas Eve with a takeaway pizza. And then on Boxing day we've always had a retro buffet.

My postcard features a tree. As a child with always had a real tree, it seemed so big and we always had candles on it which were lit on Christmas Day. I think this tradition comes from my mum as shes German.

My Mr Petrie is the oldest, hes now 13. Then Prudence, my first Romanian rescue... So much part of my heart. Our 2 other Romanian rescues, Betsy and Fleur are both differently abled each with 3 legs. And last but not least are our 2 tiny chihuahuas, Frida and Kahlo

The next picture is for perspective as the girls look ginormous but are teeny tiny

Good life

 definitely wishful thinking! Do you ever feel like 'what am i doing' my mojo is not playing along with me... I feel helpless and hopeless right now...

Im glad I have SPA to keep me plodding along making at least one thing a week.

Its ASEMIC WRITING this week... Very interesting subject to try to make sense of and interpret. I had some Dina Wakley stamps that I used on tissue paper for the background of my postcard.
