I have a huge stash of lace, buttons, threads and trims. I have rather a lot of ribbons which I have collected over many years. All those ribbons in the shoulders of dresses and sweaters that are meant to hook onto coat hangers but are so annoying. I have cut them out and just know that they will be really useful one day!
I also have a massive pile of postcards that I have collected on my extensive travels. I used some (not important) postcards to wind ribbon and lace onto in some resemblance of order. The question now is what to do with the remaining cards?
I’m sorry not to have blogged for some time but I have just returned from a trip to Scotland. A land full of castles frequently shrouded in mist. We had a great time and hope that my internal batteries have re charged!
There was an absence of shopping opportunities but I managed to track down a few charity shops! When my first Grandchild was born nine years ago I realised that she would be a child of the internet. I decide that everywhere I went I would send her a postcard. I love the written word and worry that modern children will use it less and less. Indeed postcards are getting less and less available as I suppose their days are numbered!
I now have three grandchildren so that means three postcards. I send them even when I go on a day out somewhere. I always date them and say something about who I am with or the place that I am staying. I purchased special boxes for each child to store their cards in. I hope that some time in the distant future these cards will provide a social history of myself and I will be remembered through my travels.
I s not the variety that I send to grandchildren!aw the Glow worm card on Blackpool pier! This is not the
Well, great joy! This morning I realised that I now have 50 yes fifty that’s a 5 and an o followers! Now I realise that in cyber terms that is nothing but in my terms that’s fantastic! I enjoy this blogging stuff and really do feel connected with the World.
Thank you to everyone who drops by my blog.
When my first Grandchild was born I realised that she would be a modern girl and grow up in an internet society so to maintain a contact and to balance life out a little I started sending her postcards via Royal Mail. I now have three grandchildren and every time I go away, whether for a long time or a day out I send each of them a postcard. I always send a local view,date them and say a little of who I am with and what I am doing..I bought nice boxes and encouraged them to keep them. I hope that in the future when they are as vintage as me these cards will provided something of a social history of me. Hopefully they may remember me as well!
