Pile Of Postcards Update



*** Desperately seeking Helen, who left a comment saying she would like to take part. Please email me today if you are out there. Sorry, I had no way of getting in touch with you *** Found her!


....and if Helen gets in touch we will have our 48! Most of you will have received a list of names and addresses yesterday (and some of you have already been in touch to say you are ready to get writing. Hurray!). There will be two groups whose lists aren't quite complete until I finalize that last name, but I'm hoping to get that sorted out today. And then we'll be all ready to go.

It's been exciting to see the names come in; and I'm especially delighted that I'm going to be able to introduce some of you to my oldest friend, who reads here regularly and has decided to jump on board. We have known each other since we were about eight, I think, and I can personally vouch for her postcard writing prowess! That old postcard album of mine contains some fine examples of her early work. If Laura is on your list, say hello from me!


If you have questions, do please feel free to get in touch. With any swap I think there only has to be one rule: treat everyone the way you'd like to be treated yourself. So, prompt posting of a perfectly picked postcard should see us all right. I can't wait to see what arrives, can you?

off to buy my pile today. Oh yes, I'm a great believer in the character from The Waterbabies 'Mrs Do as you would be done by'

Jay & I went antique shopping on Saturday. One of the vendors at Shupp's Grove (outdoor venue) had vintage postcards at 25 cents each! So I got some great ones of the Lancaster area (about 2 hours from me and a place I visit regularly) that should be fun! Now to write...

I was so happy to spy perfect post cards the other day. I only bought five but luckily have a perfect one in my stash for Abi!
Should be getting mine out this week.

Right, I will get on with it, my hometown is laden with them so it should be a breeze :-) I definitely do not want to be the weakest link! Thanks again for organising.

I would love to have joined in Sian but I have lots of happy mail I already planned to send and I am currently busy with other new projects. Looking on, feeling disappointed I can't be part of this, but enjoying the buzz of excitement.
