I have joined a postcard swap
which involves twelve of us making a postcard
for the person alphabetically below us on our list
based on their chosen theme.
All twelve of us post our cards on the same day.
My first card is for
whose theme is
My card is supposed to represent looking into a window
on a whitewashed house in Spain.
Geraniums in terracotta pots on the windowsill
beaded fly curtains
old worn frames
and lace to keep cool
in this hot place
I used to live in Spain
and though I hate to see caged birds,
many houses in our village had them
so I have included one.
I found the vintage book at a market
while staying in Barcelona.
I rushed to the door when the postman arrived this morning
this is what
made for me.
My theme being Angels.
A beautiful Angel
printed onto specialist paper
so that the light shines through
like a stained glass window.
The gold is so rich against te darker tones.
Jane photographed the image while on holiday
in Blanchland Northumbria.
The gold edging frames it beautifully.
I'm so glad I chose the theme Angels !
Thank you Jane for my lovely postcard
and thank you to the organisers of
for all the hard work.
It's a lot of fun.
