Postcard Day

It was a day for going through boxes and boxes of postcards at the meeting of the Postcard Collectors Club.  I found some nice cards to add to my collection.

For example – isn’t he a cutie?

Postcard Sunday Is Near

The first Sunday of each month a meeting of the Pacific Northwest Postcard Collectors Club is held.  In anticipation of the March meeting I am going to post some of my cards.  I’m never quite sure what I am going to look for, nor what I am going to find, at each meeting.That’s part of the fun.Last month I got sort of carried away by Sheep.  The seller has promised to bring more “sheep” cards this month.  I am also going to be on the lookout for dogs and cats.  And cards from places where I have lived and traveled.



Skiing in Norway


Not to forget my interests in knitting and weaving


A good solid dog

Favorite Pets

2019_01_17_10_13_04.pdf000I’m not really picking a favorite – that would be too hard.  But the dog pictured, Grover, whom we had in Fiji certainly was memorable for many good reasons.  A fiji hound!  He was full of fun – we loved him and he loved us.

Beautiful Mollie
