Thanks for popping in.
Tuesday’s blog is usually inky, isn’t it?
Well we did look at a fab colour blend yesterday, with Oh Joy!
So you can always scroll back if you need an inky fix.
Instead today, I want to blog a special card for a special occasion.
27th September is a big day in our home;
it’s my parents’ wedding anniversary!
58 years ago today,
they got married in a little church in the north of Germany,
in a little village called Sande.
Yesterday, Mum was talking about their Polterabend.
This is when your neighbours and friends come to your home the evening before the wedding day,
and smash a load of crockery in the front!
The happy couple then have to sweep all the mess up together,
and a party ensues!
I have been to a few Polterabende over the years,
and they are such fun!!
I guess instead of having the girls go off for a hen do
and the boys go out on a stag,
in Germany they stick together.
As they mean to continue, I suppose.
Anyway, that’s the German way.
So this is the little card I made to celebrate the occasion….
Now I must get going!
We are taking Mum and Dad out for a posh meal tonight,
and time is ticking on….
Love & hugs
