Tea Time Talk Thursday with Ruth
Vintage Thingie Thursday with Suzanne
makes for a good Thursday.
Tea on the deck today.
Acorns still on the deck table.
Having------Lemon Honey Chamomile by Disney Tea, The Official Unbirthday Tea.
1/2 grapefruit for snack.
Using my new cobalt blue tea cup with the sweet little blue bird on it.
Feeling------Sun is shining brightly. It is probably about 70 degrees.
Feeling so encouraged and hope of warm weather.
HH and I like to sit in the sun about 10 a.m. every morning during the warm weather.
On my mind--------The sun makes me feel good and has helped ease my mind about this diabetic learning I need to do.
Messed up today and ate too much Grape Nuts cereal for lunch as I had overlooked the carbs factor.
My supplies came today and post lunch BS was way too high.
Now me knows.
~Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to
overcoming the consequence of any misfortune~
Go here to join in the Tea Talk and meet some nice folks.
Vintage Thingie Thursday
I had said that I was finding myself interesting in old postcards since blogging and decide to start a search.
I visited two of my regular thrift haunts and did not find anything.
I went to my true favorite Mackin's Antiques in town and wala- did I ever hit the jackpot.
I approached the cards with expectations of having to pay dearly for a single card but found a large box of cards, mostly $1.00 each.
I came home with some treasures.
I first looked for ones with messages so as to establish a date and found a couple.
But I have some really neat ones.
Collecting postcards takes up a lot less room them some items I had been collecting.
This, of course, is The Barry Statue and Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pa.
Very nice preserved card.
Built in 1729-35 by the Province Of Pennsylvania as the Colonial State House.
In the foreground is shown the bronze statue of
The more interesting side.
Now I don't know why this was only partly scanned but what is important is the date and where it was mailed from.
From a niece to her aunt and uncle in Ohio.
I had blocked out the name and street address, but I guess her words were not to be sent out into cyberspace to be read.
