Post Card Project......Part 2

    Back in June, I posted about how much I love to get postcards. I promised to send out a postcard to anyone who wanted one, up to ten people. Part of the deal was, if you wanted a postcard from me, you had to agree to send one out to someone else, thus paying forward the postcard bliss. Was I ever surprised to get some in return!
    Take a look at the nifty postcards I got:

Clockwise from top right
Amish girls in Pennsylvania, from Auntie M.
Connemara, Ireland, from daughter Gnome and son Neo
A beautiful painting by Andre Derain, from Septembermom
Patriotic Philadelphia, from cousin Jill
     I came away from this little project with a renewed gratitude for my family and friends, and with an increased desire to send more postcards!  Every time I travel someplace new, I buy a souvenir magnet. I am committing right now, in front of the whole world (because we know the whole world reads my blog, right?)  to also buy a postcard and send it out. Are you with me? Help keep your favorite postal worker employed!


  1. I love writing letters.. I used to write big letters just like newspapers when I was a teenager to my bst frnd who have shifted to Australia. Life reamined same for her and me and we grew up from 14 to 24 in those letters..

    Would you like to receive something from me... a postcard ofcourse? let me know..

    Take cre..♥☺

  2. Naqvee: That is so inspiring that you and your friend remained in touch with letters over the years! As much as we all love email, there's something to be said for getting a letter in the mail. And yes, I would LOVE to get a postcard from you! I will send you one too! Email your complete address to and I will send you my address too.

  3. Think the Black Hills of South Dakota.

  4. Auntie M: Are you there? Tell the truth---you're on your Hog, headed toward Sturgis, aren't you? :)

    kisatrtle: Don't you just love getting mail?

  5. Leaving Friday, via air. It's the last day of the Hog rally, so I hope they've cleared out by the time we arrive.

  6. Auntie M: Have fun! (Not that you need to be told-ha ha!) Jere learned so much by seeing the stony faces in person. The grandkidlets are going to love it!

  7. Oh, I love seeing that postcard with you now :) Just remember that you're my soul sister in a lot of ways and I know that you see the hope and life dancing quality of that painting too.

  8. septembermom: It means so much to me that it was yours for so long. It is such a beautiful card.


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
