It's been a week since I've posted and I really can't explain where the time has gone! It's not for lack of content. I have quite a bit to share, and hopefully, will get most of them drafted before we head south next week.
I thought I'd received all my postcards from Sian's wonderful Postcard Swap last week, but it turns out I was one of the lucky ones to receive an extra from my friend, Cheri. If everything goes as planned, Cheri and I will be meeting up next week for the first time. We've been trying to figure out a way to meet for several years now, and we think we've done it. More on that soon, I hope! So one advantage of procrastinating with this post, is another card arrived on Tuesday, so now I can share them all.
I love that Alison managed to find an adorable postcard of a puppy that looks like hers, relaxing by the side of a pool. Hopefully, I'll be right there with him in about 10 days! Cheri's postcard features a great quote.
Laura (not a blogger) created her own postcard with a wonderful vintage sticker, and Ruth sent me this great collage of images from London.
These next two cards seem to go together perfectly. Julie sent me the one of The Ladybird books. They are unfamiliar to me, but the covers of these remind me of the orange-covered biographies I loved in elementary school. I have no idea who the publisher of those were. My sixth grade teacher had a whole bookcase filled with them, and I think I read nearly all of them that year. The Dickens Festival card from Jane sends me right to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario where we go every fall.
And last, but definitely not least, is another fabulous postcard of the iconic double-decker red buses of London with some landmarks as well, sent to me by Sheena.
Many thanks, Sian, for all the organizing you did to pull off another great postcard swap!
If all goes as planned, I'll be back tonight with my Pairs for Helena's meme --- already a day late for that as well!
