The Effects of Tobacco

I did manage to get a few impatiens in the ground, but not as many as I hoped. They are starting to get too big for the little "6-packs" they are in, so I can't wait too much longer. Hopefully, maybe, more tomorrow?

I have to share this, I think it turned out well. It's for the Letter T Skinny swap, and I took an image from an old French postcard that I've had for several years. It's one of a group of old black and white cards which show the native costume of the people in Provence France and this particular one always fascinated me, because it shows a child with a pipe in his/her mouth. So, a little of this and a little of that and this is what we have:

Funny, no? 

This is a good example of why I want a laser printer (for a clear crisp image, this one is a little on the soft side) and I actually think I found one well within my price range! Someone suggested a site to me, and they have small laser printers and I have my eye on a Samsung. I think since it's only me using it and I won't be needing reams of work done, it will suit just fine. Whoo hoo!!


  1. I didn't know they wore clogs in France!

    and I like his (her?) big round eyes, I guess smoking promotes alertness?? :)

    or mom, maybe it's one of those bubble pipes...

  2. Clogs were very common in many parts of Europe many years ago.

    I wouldn't say that was alertness......... :)

    and dear, they didn't have bubble pipes back in the day, which was waay back in the day!
