Today was Small Business Appreciation Day and I managed to coax HWNSNBP into taking a walk through downtown Somerville - the nearest town to us and where our kids went to high school. Unfortunately, it was drizzling and though it wasn't cold, it was a bit uncomfortable walking around and there wasn't as much of a crowd as we had anticipated. (Though that can be a good thing too.) We did drop into a few stores but the one that we spent the most time in was an antique emporium. I could have spent the whole afternoon there, but I didn't want my escort to get too bored so after spending a bit of time going through a box of vintage postcards, I took a quick walk-through and then finished up with this purchase of five Christmas-themed postcards. I do have a purpose in mind for them which I will hopefully get to post at a later date. But since the prompt for Our Beautiful World this week is VINTAGE, I am sharing them now.
The background for my postcard photos are the strips of scrapbook paper that I am using to make......
these stars for my Christmas Elf project. I'll share more of that too at a later date.
Let me be off to keep folding and also to check out the other VINTAGE photos from around the world at Our Beautiful World. Won't you join me?
