I received some postcards recently so thought I would post them. The first one is from an old friend who lives in North Carolina - she is DH's second mom and a huge influence in his life. Lovely wonderful friend and she sent me this beautiful postcard which is from a painting called "Cat on Rug" by Lucy Willis . Can't you just feel the soft summer air and the breeze moving thru the trees?
I received 3 great postcards from Marianne this week along with my ABC-ATC trade. Marianne is a wonderful artist and does everything in a very special way - her ATC came packaged in a delicate pink gauzy small bag - just the perfect package for her wonderful work.
Anyway - the first one was made by her son Felix a few years ago - and is delightful. Check out the picture below and see the trees and the houses and the little apartment buildings. And the KLM plane and the blue clouds - just great.
The second one is an old postcard that she had and decided to send to me for Postcard Friday - and is a great still life. I'm not sure what is says on the front but my interpretation is "Have a drink and a smoke while you give yourself a manicure and splash some aftershave onto your smooth cheeks" (I'm paraphrasing to be sure) Isn't it great? Such an interesting set of items on this card.
This third one came from Marianne also and is going onto my list of favorite cards. Isn't it just classic little Dutch kids? That blond hair and rosy cheeks! And the adorable puppies! I don't know if I ever mentioned it but one of my best friends is Dutch and she had 5 little girls who all looked like this when they were small. Two of them were our godchildren and they were just the most adorable little kids you'd ever see. I love this postcard.
Thank you Marianne - these are a wonderful addition to my postcard collection and a great post for Postcard Friday.
