These Madonna stamps are so lovely from an oil painting done by the Milanese painter Luini. The soft gold frames the portrait nicely. I love looking at their faces even in this miniature format. I am really happy to use these stamps on all my Christmas cards. And I wanted to you remind you where I buy stamps for convenience- on line!
The season has begun for another of my favorite fruits, the pomegranate. All these years I have been pulling out the delectable seeds with a great big mess, juice and seeds getting everywhere. This year I appreciate a good friend of mine telling me about the water soaking tip. So after you cut the pomegranates into sections let them sit in water and they soften. After that the seeds slip out so easily!
