Here's Some Luck -Postcard Friendship Friday #475



I adore black cats, and I love the idea good luck follows them.  I have a wonderful little kitten, SnowBug Da'Bean, who has long black fur and is a regular clown.

He's a blessing to me, that's for sure.  Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends.  Happy Halloween and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Merry Hallowe'en!



I adore the artwork of Ellen Clapsaddle.  Her paintings of children remind me of my own when they were small.  She catches the essence of the mischief and beauty of childhood. 

Here two little girls are playing a familiar Halloween game, peeling an apple, then throwing the long peel over one's shoulder to see what letter of the alphabet it resembles when it lands.  The theory is that letter is the first initial of the guy or gal one might marry someday.  Haha

Have a great week.  Fall is here--but winter is not far behind.  Blessings and hope to you dear ones.

Watch the Flickering Flame -Postcard Friendship Friday #474



I like this postcard because of the cat.  The tiny black cat I dubbed "SnowBug Da'Bean" turns out to be a main coon.  In four months he is the size of my full-grown cat!  When he's full grown, he may be the size of a small dog--like the plucky black cat in the postcard.

Have a lovely weekend, Friends and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Picking Lilies


I came across this beautiful painting of a Dutch girl picking Easter lilies and I was charmed.  It is such a lovely moment--enchantingly captured...

This little girl, though in the garb of old, reminds me of my children when they were young.

Wooden Shoes and Windmills -Postcard Friendship Friday #473



I love this artist's work.  These paintings have such a beautiful smooth quality about them.

It's getting close to Halloween...and though these wonderful traditional outfits are not costumes, I thought it to be sweetly fitting to post this vintage postcard.   I've always loved The Netherlands and the wonderful stories and traditions of that country.

Have a great weekend, sweet Friends!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

She's a Lioness!



This wonderful piece is by an artist who goes by the name Coffeepotion.  I love this--she is so perfectly Art Nouveau, in the tradition of Alphonse Mucha. 

I am in awe...

Pumpkin Faces Dance and Gleam -Postcard Friendship Friday #472


What a darling Halloween Postcard!  I love the hanging pumpkin, and especially that wide-eyed black cat.  I have two cats now, Toez the Polydactyl Cat, and our new little friend SnowBug Da'Bean, who looks a great deal like the kitten under the shock-haired boy on this postcard!

Have a lovely weekend, Friends.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, and Happy Halloween!

Flying in a Pumpkin!


I found this one online.  This artist is a favorite of mine and I adore the idea of flying across the sky in a pumpkin.

I hope I dream of doing that!

Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends.

Halloween Signs



There are so many spooky traditions associated with Halloween.  I love this postcard with its white bats, fairy wand and talking candle.  What a charmer!

Have a great week!

Happy Friday the 13th! -Postcard Friendship Friday #471


Yes, it is Friday the 13th.  I've never seen it as a scary holiday, just a fun day--this one was special, though, because the moon was full.  The next full moon on Friday the 13th will be in 2045--long after I am gone to heaven.  Happy Friday the 13th!


It is hard to believe Halloween will be here in six weeks!  Fall is here with a vengeance.  A storm has blown in and it is raining.

Tomorrow the weather is to become especially rambunctious!  I'm kind of looking forward to the thunderstorms they say may roll through here--we don't have many, and when they do come through, they're not dangerous as they are in the mid-western regions of the US.

Have a lovely weekend!  Happy Friday the 13th, Happy Halloween and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
