Postcard love

It recently dawned on me that one reason I like making postcards is that I’ve always liked postcards. Many that I’ve received are on the kitchen wall.

When I mentioned Hiroshige in my other blog, a friend send me a note saying she had a fat book of Hiroshige postcards, which she sent out sparingly because she didn’t want them to run out. I replied that I had the same fat book, but couldn’t bear to send them at all!

Postcards I┬ácan’t part with

It’s hard to believe my last post was in October! With two trips, granddaughter’s birthday and Thanksgiving, November didn’t allow for much art output. But here are the few I’ve managed to produce, followed by some lovely cards I received.

Another card that I made in November was posted on my other blog, since it included a poem.

Finally, some fun cards received in the past few weeks:
