German Books and Elephant Ears

These people I have become friends with from Munich Germany left today however yesterday we all went out to lunch and they gave me another gift which I like gifts LOL
Carl knows I like old leather bound books and he picks these up at sales around Germany ,he told me this was the last of the marbleised  leather covered  books he has right now. Remeber his wife Manuela made me the little bag with material from France and Bulgaria. She is the natural born German and Carl met her after college so he stayed in Germany with her they have raised all 3 children to speak German and English

Aren't they fabulous? well if you like old books they are ,all written in German


Now I have got to get my bookshelves organized I have books all over the house of course maybe I can get them all on one shelf. All over the house meaning under lamps on end tables on my ottoman you know what I mean.

While I was outside this morning I took pictures of my Elephant ears they are just beautiful this year for some reason I have really enjoyed them

My chandelier hanging in this tree has lost all it's prisms my yard man can't understand why it's hanging there LOL LOL

Now I have got to get in the shower and run some errands It's 1:30 and I am still in pajamas LOL
