Mostly postal but art and other things of interest too.
Come and visit.

This is not a test

Day By Day
The new normal? Stay at Home......

I miss all my pals!
Remember when you could hang out with your friends?
Zoom doesn't cut it...

The Gorgeous Dahlia Garden in Golden Gate Park
Nature can still give us gifts...and did you know the dahlia is the official flower of San Francisco?
No wonder GG Park has a big Dahlia garden.


NO Eating Out
Restaurants in San Francisco have no dining in since March....and (in my opinion) SF isn't the greatest place to sit outside....fog, wind,  chill and hard on the restaurants, workers, etc
I hope they can manage to stay in business.
Doesn't this guy look like a chef? or line cook? or waiter?

City Girls
These two look like city girls to me. One with a bag of take out and the other wearings pants probably before it was common... 

What is going on here???
Wouldn't you love to know? I know I would... 

And this one, perfect for August. I can't tell what kind of fruit that is. Peaches? I have been hitting every farm stand and farmers market I possibly can.....two words...
Summer Tomatoes
(And no, that is not me)

Zucchini blossoms
Another summer is so cool to eat flowers...

Girls just wanna have fun...
even now...
I found these great old snapshots at ScrapSF (which just recently reopened)
 . I've always loved old photos. So many ways to play with them.

Like this is going in one of my altered passports. I wonder where those two are... 

Garden Photos
I always love a good garden photo... 

And, I love a good garden too...this is my little city backyard and it has been an oasis of peace since all this started. I am so happy to have a place to sit that is green and pretty.

Pull up a chair...
and have a seat. We can sit six feet apart and visit and catch up. You can tell me what you've been doing. Wouldn't that be lovely?
So come on over and sit.
Or, you can leave me a comment and tell me.
I'd love to hear from you and I am hoping everyone is well.

Since I've been away from posting, Blogger has changed everything and I don't know what has happened. Favorite posts and search and all the sidebars have just vanished (does anyone know where the sidebars went?)....I should set up a blog on another platform but I'd need a whole lot of help to figure that out.. 

Hello Friends...hope you're all well and safe.



  1. Greetings. Loved all your vintage photos. One of my favorite things to collect. Your garden is delightful. Happy that you have such a lovely spot to escape to. I spend some time everyday in my garden. It really helps as some days are harder than others. Trying to stay focused on my book art groups, projects and classes. Would definitely be insane without them. Keep smiling my friend. Someday...

    1. Hello friend — and yes, absolutely, some days are harder than others. I am trying to keep making art too — art saves lives — and keeps us sane. Enjoy your garden. I look forward to seeing you in SF one day.........

  2. Wonderful old photos and a lovely garden sanctuary. Spending time in my tiny garden is important to me, too.

    I'm trying hard to save the USPS and hoping that all over the country others are doing the same. My letters may not make much difference, my contributions may be small, but I do excel at buying stamps. :)

    I tried the new blogger, but ended up back on Legacy. If they discontinue Legacy, I'd just as soon learn a new platform and try to adjust to new blogger.

  3. Hi! Oh yes - I excel at buying stamps too and I’m waiting for my shipment of those gorgeous Ruth Asawa stamps now. I read blogger is going to discontinue Legacy by September. Geeze.... this new setup is a mess.....

    1. Great minds think alike - waiting for my Ruth Asawa stamps as well!

  4. To me, SF is one of the safest cities to be in right now. Try living in a city where the COUNTY govt. says you don't need to wear masks, but the CITY govt. says you must. Try living in a state where the GOVERNOR was sued by the state senate because SHE required masks be worn at all times when outside or in buildings. The Senate and KS Supreme court WON. Try living in a city where bars are open until all hours of the night and school starts after Labor Day in person for all classes. No distance learning, no sharing, no nothing. I want to live in your state and I want to visit your incredible garden.

    I would have been here sooner, but my internet was offline for nine days. My phone was offline for five of those days, too. I love AT&T (NOT).

  5. Great photos! You keep us all company during these social distancing days. Thanks for sharing! Be happy!

  6. I’m coming to this post late but just wanted to say how much I always enjoy your posts. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and creativity behind each one.
