A Quick Little Getaway...

I briefly mentioned my recent vintage postcard obsession here. I'm particularly drawn to the old linen cards, and this is one of my recent finds. Isn’t it beautiful!? I was bidding on another one from this area but lost it. I’ve been trying to find cards from places I’ve either lived or visited, and though this pier has now been swallowed by mother nature, I know the area well. And it’s actually where the girlies and I are headed to this afternoon! We’re having a mom and daughters girls weekend away, giving the DH the house to himself for the weekend. Since I have four days of work travel next week, this’ll give me some good quality time with the girls and give DH a break at the same time, right? I have a good friend who owns a beach place on Alligator Point and his parents own a beautiful house on Ochlocknee Bay. I'm not one to turn down an offer for a free weekend in a beach house. :-) The two homes are within 10 minutes of each other. The beach place is rented for the weekend, but he said we were welcome to stay at his parents’ place (all art supplies will remain under lock and key so that this does not happen there). There’s a great little beach just down the road from the house, so it’ll be the perfect spot for me and the girls. I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever your plans may call for! As for all these postcards, hopefully you will see some of them again soon! I'm finally getting around to creating some of the journals I learned to create here!
