The EU referendum - vote now while there is still time!

This will be me, as soon as the month is over. I will be going away on holiday, so maybe I won't sleep all the time.

I find it interesting that all but one image has the sleeper on her right side.

This must be self-explanatory.

Yachts might have made a nice collage, except that I have only one, or at least only one that I can find. I've discovered over the last few weeks that I need a better filing system. Young could have been another theme: young animals, young children.

I did consider "yesteryear" showing some of my vintage postcards but vintage cards don't really look great as a collage.  they are better viewed singly.

Xmas cards

Until recently, I had no idea there were such things as Christmas themed postcards. They aren't easy to find in the UK but other countries have an abundance of them. They come in many different themes, but probably the most common are:

Santa Claus/Father Christmas/Père Noel/all sorts of names

and snowmen/bonhomme de neige:

I don't know why, but I find the snowman at the centre above vaguely creepy.

Waterways, I suppose, means a way of getting from one place to another by water, so I have excluded a few nice waterfalls. So here you have a mixture of canals and rivers.

Occasionally it's hard to tell one from another, though the canals in Venice are unlikely to be mistaken as rivers. They really do serve as a transportation system - even the rubbish is collected by boat.

Village scenes

The truth is, I don't collect Villages or Village scenes, but I do collect any building with a thatched roof.  T was taken by other topics so here we are with Villages.

A typical English village would, especially in the south of England, have had a large number of thatched cottages, but they are found in many other countries too. The card at the top left shows a house in Germany, and the centre bottom shows an Irish cottage.

If you lived in London you would call it the Underground, but the underground system in Moscow is called the Metro as it is in Paris. However you would never mistake the Moscow metro stations for those in any other part of the world. They are magnificent!

I have never had the good fortune to see them for myself but I can enjoy them through postcards, and maybe one day I really will be able to see them with my own eyes.
