"My name is Tante Resi, I was born in May 1919 near Passau (Bavaria). I'm a great fan of my red puddle astrid, she is really sweet. When i was younger I liked very much to travel with my husband to Ischia, a very nice island. We spent their a lot of weeks specially in wintertime when it was too cold in Germany. I have a big interest to become immortal... but apart from this things I'm interested in all kind of rumours in my village and of course shopping is a big thing in my life... since 2003 I'm making art with my grandnephew Florian Aschka"

I must say that when I receaved a friend request from Tante Resi at myspace...I was so surprised,  that I didn't know what hit me...I guess it was love at first sight...As you imagine I've asked her to send me the e-mail of the creator of her awesome photos.... her grandnephew Florian Aschka, to ask his permission for sharing Tante's images at yatzer! And I did it!

Florian's Grandaunt Resi is in the hospital at the moment, because of several problems with her heart and bones..

Yatzer wishes her to get well soon..because ART is waiting for her!!!
