I love postcards, especially old postcards, the beautiful pictures, the short space where well chosen words describe a special moment, a moment in time.
There is something so wonderful about holding a vintage postcard in ones hand and feeling around the lovely edge and reading the old fashioned writing by an inky pen. The words take me back, sometimes a 100 years, to someone telling about a holiday or just describing what is happening at home.
I like the idea of a postcard as it describes so succinctly a time, a small picture, and a few words that captures a feeling.
I was hoping you would share a postcard moment with me. It maybe from a real postcard that was sent to you or even you sent, and you can share the words and or describe the picture. Evoke a feeling we can all share.
Or you can make up a postcard, it could be from your kitchen or your garden or your imagination or anything that inspires you.
You can just write a few words - it could be what is happening right now in your life or share a memory from your past.
It could be something fun or a serious postcard.
The writing on the card in the phototgraph is as below:
Very pleased to hear from you.
I thought you had forgotten all about me,
which I had not about you and never will.
Wish you were back in Seymour.
There is more that I could type out if people can't read it.
Why had the writer thought she was forgotten? These words have so many questions.
I would like to receive your postcard moments.
Have a go and send me a moment in time.
