From the Top of the World

We sent a number of post cards while we were in New Zealand in July.  Hubby decided to send one to our house. 

from the back of the card:
Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga) is the northwesternmost tip o the North Island and one of New Zealand's most visited sites.  It is Maori belief that Cape Reinga is the point where spirits of the dead nter the afterlife.  Visit legendary Cape Reinga, and witness the coming together of two oceans... the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea.

We all Love the Circus

Sent this one to daughter when I was in Las Vegas for the CES (Consumer Electronics Show).  This is the hotel that we stayed at.

If you are curious, check this link to my post about what I thought was the Hottest Product at CES 2013.

A Mother's Love

While my mother was coping with dad's illness and his subsequent passing, she embroidered dozens of fabric postcards.  Quite a few were sent as thank-yous to the many people who helped my parents during the course of dad's illness.

As Christmas came around, she was still stitching.  This is the one that she hand delivered to me mid December. I think that it is absolutely gorgeous and will be keeping it out on display for quite a while yet.


I will be linking up with Postcard friendship Friday at The Best Hearts are Crunchy
