- Blue frame. Landscape through the camera lens. Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. Theodore Roosevelt
For this week I have a silver diecut star banner, I've added some blue to the "non star" bits, a stamped image of the globe and I've handwritten the quote. Sadly some heat embossing on the reverse has affected the page.

Every inchie Monday
Greece .....the acropolis of Athens, the oracle of Delphi, marathon, Mt Olympus home of the gods Zeus/ Aphrodite/ Hermes and more, the early writers, moussaka & taramasalata, stuffed vine leaves & feta cheese, retsina & ouzo and the remote monasteries in the peloponese. I drove through this country on our way to Abu Dhabi way back.....in 1977 and remember that the restaurants all seemed to have a standard menu & they only put prices beside the dishes that they cooked...nothing was written in English, I spoke no Greek so I'd get dragged off to the kitchen to see what was on offer & we would all rely on sign language- it was quite scary the first time it happened! This week I have map, flag & writing for you.
I had another visit up to Fraserburgh to visit Brodie on Monday, he's growing fast and going to be a handful! He moves in with us on Thursday.....
