Sorry for the delay in posting. Like many people I have been down with that nasty cold and cough that seems to be hitting everyone.

I have continued to buy quite a number of old post cards on E Bay that depict my village of Flamborough before 1945. Some of them go back to 1906.

In one packet I received, the seller included as packing the pictures below that are from a brochure promoting the county of Northumberland in Northern England.
I was intrigued by them, mainly because although I could quickly identify #1-3, picture #4 puzzled me for a couple of hours. They are all products of Northumberland. What do you think they are?


Sadly, my dear friend , Sylvia, had to be put into hospice care last week . The cancer they wanted to remove has spread throughout her body. The good news is that Sylvia has a wonderful and secure faith in the Lord. She tells us she is ready and knows the Lord is there waiting for her. She has a remarkable life story from her childhood in Armenia where she and her family suffered much persecution . She is fading fast. If you can spare the time, prayers for her peace and comfort as well as for the comfort of her family, would be so appreciated.

Are they feathers, wool, leeks or onions and fish skin.
It looks like those people on the cruise ship had a good time. We got another 6-8 inches of snow today.

so sad, but you're right- it's a good thing that she's ready. yes, I'll pray.

Wanda said...

She is a beautiful soul inside and out. To be that close to heaven isn't all bad... Will pray that your journey will be without pain and God's grace holding her close.

Love and Hugs

I thin also about Feathers, wool, I do not know and fish skin.
I hope Sylvia will pass away softly, without fear and without pain.

My prayer has been said today for Sylvia.

I think the one thing #3 is little green onion stems or stalks.

Not sure. May be completely wrong.

RuneE said...

Sorry to hear about you fried. Give her my regards!

PS Thank you for the comment - I have a red tree!

Jose said...

Let me join you in prayer, it seems that she knows that she will be going to a better place and is ready.

Greg C said...

Awww such a sweet looking lady. I am so happpy though that she feels she is ready. That says a lot about her character.

I am guessing #4 is a snake skin.

I am giving you the letter S for things that you love since you mentioned Sylvia in this post.
