Postcard party…oh the choices!

March 20, 2013

There is a lovely lady named Vee who hosts a once/month postcard party and has kindly invited me to join in the fun.

To play one must find four images already on one’s blog and present them as possible postcards.

009 copy
I’m doing this Wednesday morning and so have chosen morning images.

011 copy
Maybe I should have some printed thru Moo Cards. Maybe we all should! Post crossings with people we know would be so much more fun than with people we don’t know, don’t you think?

Tea cup Tuesday, we only have time for breakfast. Some days are like that.

    Love the typewriter image and camera very much- so retro- miss those days!

    • Reply Veronica March 20, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      I know Kathryn, completely retro, but boy does it ever make your fingers ache after a while. πŸ™‚

    I like them all! Love the quote about photography.

    • Reply Veronica March 20, 2013 at 12:02 pm

      Hi Michelle, that’s a good quote, isn’t it?

    Each photo is so unique. I adore the old typewriter, but the berries drew me in. I must be hungry! Lovely photos and I’m glad to be here to see your work.

      Hi Jan, I’m so glad you left your addy because now I can visit you! πŸ™‚ I’ve been having so much fun with the old typewriter but have no idea how the secretaries ever used them!

    Beautiful photos, love the moo card idea πŸ™‚

    I love visiting the white horse at Uffington, and near by Waylands Smithy. We really are practically neighbours when you are in your UK home πŸ™‚

    • Reply Veronica March 20, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      Angela, maybe we can meet and have a picnic at the white horse this summer! πŸ™‚

    Really like the camera/typewriter one and those raspberries! They look delicious!

      Thank you Kzemek, they were delicious. πŸ™‚

    Nice note cards with varied subjects. The old typewriter brought back memories of when I was a secretary in a bank. The manager’s secretary had an electric, but I had to pound out on the keys of mine and you could forget about long nails. πŸ™‚

      Hi Judith, that’s so true! I typed a few letters to my penpals recently and my fingers hurt! But it’s so much fun to use it. πŸ™‚

    Your compositions are fabulous.

    • Reply Veronica March 20, 2013 at 6:02 pm

      Thank you JoAnn. πŸ™‚ I just figured out you’re in WA, that’s pretty close to me. Hi neighbour! πŸ™‚

    Hello Veronica
    what lovely images you have chosen for your note cards.
    I adore the first one of the bouquet of tulips – I would love to receive that card!!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comment ?
    Yes! You asked me if I enjoyed visiting gardens – I really do and I always pick up an idea/colour combination I can apply to my garden, there are so many inspirational gardeners out there.
    You’re so lucky to be allowed 10 chickens in the city (sadly we’re not in Auckland) sounds great to grow sunflowers, won’t they just love pecking away protected under that wonderful golden umbrella!!!
    Shane ?

    • Reply Veronica March 20, 2013 at 7:35 pm

      Absolutely Shane, but my problem is I’m never in one country long enough to be fair to even my cats, let alone dogs or chickens. In my next life I hope to live on an organic farm. πŸ™‚

  • Reply Sara v March 21, 2013 at 6:40 am

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I love them all. Though the strawberries are probably my fav–that composition with that amazing plate–transparent crackle glaze (fabulous!!) and hands, soft sweaters, brilliant red berries–well, it’s brilliant, that’s what it is πŸ™‚

    • Reply Veronica March 21, 2013 at 5:27 pm

      Aw thank you Sara. πŸ™‚ You know that plate was a thrift store find. I knew it was Etruscan Majolica pottery, (because it says so on the back…lol), but I didn’t know, untill I looked it up, that my $3 find is selling on Ebay for $170!!! Holy smokes, and I bought it just to have a lovely plate to photograph. πŸ™‚

    I especially love the last photograph. I was perusing antique stores last weekend and discovered I own a lot of “treasure”, and it is just stuff I take for granted and use often because I love it. For a few moments I wondered if I should store the items away, but their value to me is sentimental and I use it because I love it. Makes you wonder though doesn’t it? But it would be very tempting to sell an item bought for $3 and make $167 profit !

    • Reply Veronica March 22, 2013 at 5:19 am

      Hi Kathy, it is tempting, isn’t it? Sometimes I think that all these photo props I collect will pay off in my old age…lol. I’m going to be an Etsy/Ebay/Cartel granny! πŸ™‚
