|Ok--now here is my question--how many of you would leave a nice, warm hotel room to go out in this?|
|And step over this slush?|
|And almost get hit from flying crud from THIS?|
|Just to get to this?|
I would.....In fact, the miserable weather gave us an excuse to spend hours at the wonderful
Boston Museum of Fine Arts
The museum has a wonderful new wing and the collection is huge. Three cafes to choose from
and the postcard show.
|Vintage French Postcard from the show showing a postcard shop in Paris. What I wouldn't give to be able to go back in time and shop there. My idea of heaven.|
Just look at all those beauties.
|There is a catalog available to buy of the show but sadly many of my favorite postcards aren't in the book.|
Still, it is worth buying or getting from the library.
Now that would have been fun to go to......
|Kind of nasty, don't you think?|
|If you are anywhere near Boston I highly suggest you get yourself to this show. There are over 500 cards in the show. It is really wonderful. And the museum is lovely and huge and you can easily spend most of a day there.|
Especially if it is snowing.
|Boston Outgoing Postcards|
I got myself back to the room and had fun tearing and pasting and collaging on the backs of the postcards I bought.
No, I really can't leave well enough alone. Besides, it's fun.
|OUTGOING Collaged Card|
Here's a close-up of one...
|Do I have to go back out AGAIN??? To the post box?? On the icy sidewalk?|
Just to mail the postcards?
|A certain person enticed me with the promise of a lobster dinner so it was well worth the trek|
in the cold and snow.
This is not something I get to have in San Francisco.
|This is the dress I wore out to dinner. How do you like it? Rather fetching, I'd say.|
Next stop washington, DC and the Postal Museum.
