I have quite a collection of embroidered crinoline ladies who are always to be found doing a bit of gentle gardening. Having stood precariously and inelegantly on a chair this morning to hack back a scented jasmine that seems to have succumbed to the cold and wet I wondered how they managed !

My good friend Ellie just showed me this amazing blog of thousands of holy cards. They are so beautiful....both mother and daughter are collectors of, and fans!
