Green Corduroy and Pink Carnations
I'm actually surprising myself at how happy I am about my upcoming move. Yes, it's in the works. Will be signing the lease on Thursday. Of course, last year at this time, we signed the lease, put up a substantial deposit, met with the landlord twice and then ... topsy turvy, a new BIG job came up seemingly out of nowhere here in our stretch of the Columbia Gorge and The Hubby's boss said, "OH, uh...":) He reimbursed us for the deposit we forfeited and it was a job The Hubby couldn't turn down. Who can refuse working for "god"?! That's what I call Google:) Google is everywhere and knows everything, right? But anyone who works on their properties signs a form, swearing to not mention them by name (a rather ironic privacy issue, don't you think?) So I dubbed them "god." Now that the job is finished -- besides I never signed any waiver -- I'm saying it: The Hubby helped build a Google site this past year. Now, it's back to the Big City -- sorta.
We're going to move across the river from Portland and become Washingtonians. Vancouver, Washington, is small compared to Portland but big enough to afford opportunities I didn't have here. (drum roll, please) In fact, I've already registered for my first continuing education class at Clark College: a writing class!
After we've signed the lease and have the key in hand, I'll post pics of our new place..... Until then, enjoy this week's freebie. This postcard has such a warm antique look to it. I think it is a real photo but when you examine it super up-close, it has the "dots" you see in a print. So I'm kinda confused. I just know that it has such a wonderful 'old fashioned' quality to it -- and the green corduroy dress adds to that vintage look. The brown haired girl is such a cutie. I like it all around and I hope you do, too. It's written on on the back (barely visible and hardly legible), but no date. My guess is pre-1914.
How lucky is that?:)
Jackie, your Google ID doesn't link to an email addy, so I don't have any way to contact you. I hope you are reading this and will email me at frenchkissedpostcards (at) gmail dot com, so I can send you your two free scans. Your choice, any two $3.99 or under, from either my Etsy shop or my Zibbet shop . Simply email me the titles/links to your two selections and I'll zip 'em to you!
And Ann, you still have your two free ones to claim from last week:)!
To all of those who drop in and take time to say Hi, please accept a big Merci Beaucoup! I know that you are busy, have lives of your own and many demands on your time. Or as Cynthia Anderson pointed out to me, many of you read from your cell phones and it's not easy pecking out a comment on those miniscule keyboards. So when you go that extra bit to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
