I have been on the lookout for hand colored postcards published by the Brush and Needle Studio in Ogunquit Maine. I haven’t come across any yet……..but wait, here is one right under my nose.
I was about to dismiss this card as being quite uninteresting, but then it sort of popped out at me that this was exactly (almost) what I was looking for. It must have been a very early one published by the Brush & Needle. I had been looking for hand-colored cards and hadn’t realized there were black & white ones. The B&N Studio was just across the street from Oar Weed Cove.
I worked and lived in the Studio the summer of 1957. The artist who did the cards was sort of like a grandmother to me and I became very fond of her and her sister. We are in fact related – these sisters were my uncle’s mother and aunt – Mimi and Auntie Alma.
Time moves on and the Brush and Needle became and is still Barnacle Billie’s!

Alma was my husband’s grandmother. I would really like to hear from you.
Yes, good to hear from you. Aunty Alma and her daughters Grace and Charlotte were so good to me that summer of 1957. Alma and Mimi were like grandmothers to me.
Delighted to establish contact. I am in Seattle – a long way from Ogunquit but I have connections.
