Comment: Guess what I am doing?? Well, I have been on my feet all day and came home to find your lovely letter! I sat down, threw the teabag at my teenager and ordered him to pour some boiling water on top!! And I started reading the article... I can smell the cinnamon from my armchair! Lovely... I am wondering how you can have a cigarette on your sofa when your house is totally flooded and you're immersed in water! This woman is really chilled! Now I am going to start to read the article seriously... But first, my tea...haaaa thanks!!☕

Jjean rated for Self-Reflection: Postcard on Jul 23, 2011
Comment: Wow, it arrived fast....and very neat....almost the same as I did for my reflection....thank you.....
Comment: I love your pinhole camera photos, and enjoyed reading about your exhibition. Thanks for contributing to my journal.
Comment: Your entries always fascinate me...the string technique and the pin-hole camera images. Funny - although I taught kids for years in Science how the camera worked, I had never used one myself.
Comment: I love reading about your busy life, is your partner famous? Will I recognise his name? Good luck with your rhubarb!
Comment: Loved your pages, I think we have the same approach to recipes! the Quiet Afternoon pics made me think & laugh and then want to play around with my kitchen utensils.
Comment: I love the ribbons and lace on the first two pages- very pink! The poem used as part of the page is very cool - I keep meaning to try and use old book pages but something in me can't cut the pages out and things like that lol. I also love the pinhole camera photos (I think) used on the next set of pages. Andy Warhol is one of my faves :)

Thank you so much for angeling the cup of tea and magazine article swap for me! The teas look great, I can't wait to try them, and your choice of magazine article was spot on! You had no way of knowing this, but I have long been intrigued by the plight of the Roma- I look forward to reading it over a cup of tea!:)
