Sunday Postcard - Celebrate

The photo is of my uncle (by marriage). He was married to my mother's sister. He was what we ethnic Irish call a "blatherskite" (someone given to voluble and empty talk). He knew everything about everything (according to "himself"). As you can see he also had small beady eyes and a pencil thin moustache. Never liked him. Now I can have some fun at his expense!!

Top hat and bow tie by Robyn England and balloons by Shabby Princess.

  2. He's gotta be turning over in his grave!!! Those red boots are a hoot, Marie, and I really like your background. It looks quite "cut and paste". This one's a winner!!

  9. This is wonderful! Your uncle is sure more fun in effigy. I love his KC and the Sunshine Band boots and his top hat! I hope to see him again in many compromising positions.
