One of the most enjoyable things about blogging is the wonderful people you “meet” from all over the world. For me, one of those people is Emma. Emma recently celebrated her 50th birthday and in honor of that momentous occasion, she emailed fellow blogging friends and asked if they’d like to join her in a postcard swap commemorating her birthday. I was one of those lucky people she emailed! First, I must tell you that Emma lives in the most glorious place, one I’ve never seen in person but would very much love to visit one day; even the name is magical: an island called Isle of Skye in Scotland. (My two favorite appraisers on Antique’s Roadshow are both from Scotland, simply because I just love to listen them talk. And okay, there you go…yes, I am an Antique’s Roadshow junkie.) Above is the postcard I received from Emma and below are two views of the one I created and sent her in return. On the back I wrote “My wish for you is your wish come true.” Take a peek over at Emma’s blog to see all the amazing postcards she’s been receiving for her birthday!
