65 years after WW2!!

Goodmorning everybody!
Today we have the 5th of May, which is always a special day for the Dutch. Then we celebrate we were liberated from the German occupation. And I believe, that although it happened already a long time ago, it never should be forgotten, this WW 2. There happened terrible things, not only by the Germans, let us not forget that either!!!, that even now people try to deny and that can never be tolerated.
So yesterday everywhere in the country there were memorials for all the victims of WW 2, but also for the victims of all the wars that followed the "big"one and that is also a good thing.
And today is "liberation"day as we call it.
So a lot of people have a day off from work and go to the fair or just stay at home, whatever.
May be we go out for a bit this afternoon, I hope there will be a bit more sunshine then.

Yesterday we were lucky! Why? Well, we were looking a long time already for a not to bigpiece of furniture to put our stereo in and the stuff you haave for it, like headphones and tapes etc. It also had to fit if possible the style of the other furniture and yesterday we found it in the second hand store we often go to to look around! It's a case of being patient sometimes, for weeks they have nothing at your liking and suddenly you find it all, because we also found a huge kind of pilare to put all the cd's in! I think the thing is about 2 mtr. high and the width of a cd box. Wow, and for a VERY nice price. They will bring the stuff Friday morning. So with a bit of luck next week I will have a picture from it.

Another thing we can strike through on our wish-list, hahaha! Next thing will still be a carpet for the sitting room, but I am sure we will find that too and just in the right colour etc. But that we will buy all new, LOL.

And what's in store for you today? I made a "kit", well, it's containing only papers, 12 to be precise, of the Zodiac signs. Part of the figures I used for them come from http://umrae-thara.deviantart.com/, take a look there, she offers some nice things all free!! May be you can do some nice things with these papers.
And don;t forget......................there is always the daily download at http://www.magickalscraps.com/bb/index.php

Now have a great day, be creative and if you made something nice, why not show it to me and the readers here????

What a lovely set of papers. Gosh, where do you get all these wonderful ideas for your projects?

I was a little girl during WWII. I remember the day the war ended. There was music and dancing in the streets in neighborhoods all over our country. That next month, I started in the first grade of school. I was 5 1/2 years old.
Memories.

You have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.
