It seems an odd question at the top of the post, but I really am thinking what I could do today! There are some options, 1: doing more housework, hmmmmm. 2: make a visit to Heidi: 3. pop into the town centre, just having a look around and may be find something nice in the sales that are going on already. 4. something else.
You see there are some different options, I'll see later this morning what it will be. May be I even can combine a couple, hey, that's an idea too LOL!
The weather is going on and off a bit overhere. It's still a rather nice temperature, although sometimes you can do with a light sweater or vest, because the wind is blowing from the NW. But temperature still is around 21 C , that's about 70 F, but there are clouds and sunshine, may be even a drop or two of rain(most of the times it rains a bit during the night) so all together it isn;t the worst weather you can think of.
I saw in the newspaper that next weekend there are all kind of fairs we could visit. I suppose we will do that, it's always nice and gives you a goal to go to. The only thing that annoyes me a bit is that on these fairs there is a lot of second hand stuff of all kind, I mean paintings, silverwork, porcelain, books etc. I like looking around and sometimes we even buy a thing or two. But till now it never happened to us that we bought a nice little thing for a few Euro and a few years later it seems to be a painting of a well-known artist, or a glass of a special period, or some magnificent porcelain stuff and that it's worth a really considerable amount of money! LOL. I like to watch the show on BBC television, called Cash in the Attic and Bargain Hunt. First one is about people raising some money of their antique stuff for a special purpose and sometimes they own real antique that is worth quite some money and in Bargain Hunt their are two couples, that receive 300 English Pounds and then they have one hour two buy three objects. Then these objects will be sold in a auction and if they make profit, they can keep the profit money.
In Holland we have another program, called Art and Kitsch, and there people can come to antique dealers with a painting, or statue or jewelry or whatever and the dealer will take a look at that. And oh boy, there are some beautiful things between it, and also some that are worth a real nice amount of money. But you also learn a bit of those program, because you get an explanation of the object, the maker of it etc. And you see some extra-ordinary objects, really interesting.
Well, the freebie of today isn't an antique one LOL, but just made in the last two weeks I think. But I am rather happy with the result of this one. I named it "Gold Framed Memories". I think there are some wonderful layouts possible with it.
Now I will crack my brains about my plans for today, hahahaha, but not without announcing to you already the new daily download at the forum, that will start on Sunday. I hope to have a slideshow on the blog this weekend, but I can assure you it is a really special kit that is offered to you, named "Beyond Dreams"!
Have a beautiful weekend all!
