|We stopped for lunch at the Jimtown Store in Healdsburg. It must have been the thrill of eating outdoors because at first I didn't even notice that sign.|
I'm in! There were a number of postal treats there like that vintage mail box (above) and this sign...
|...and peering through the door to the kitchen I saw a United States Postal Service bin sitting right by the the pots and canning jars...|
|Outside is a PO Box in the vineyard...|
|Now this is what I'm talkin' about.....these grapevines were fully loaded with grapes.|
No little wine bottles though.
|Cruisin' down the country road I spied this mailbox out of the car window. And yes we did have to turn around and go back so I could investigate. Now someone is really feeling some postal love...|
Isn't that fun?
|Of course I brought along the mail art kit and managed to do some cut and paste even though I didn't have a whole lot of time...|
It wouldn't be a fun trip without doing any mail art.
|Altered some free (my favorite kind) postcards.....|
|And to top it all off we got to have dinner outdoors too....considering in SF I am usually wearing a leather jacket and scarf and tights at night in August|
dinner outdoors in wine country was a real treat.
Back to SF now and we had such drizzle this week I saw umbrellas but I have my sunny memories..
