Late Night Thoughts
The above postcard is from my collection of vintage cards. I have been collecting them for over ten years and they are such beautiful things. My Mom and I started going to postcard shows a long time ago and we spend the day together going through tons of cards and spending too much money because there are such treasures. This is a card by a woman artist, Cecily Shand (1898-1979). She has a "light delicate Art Deco style" that is just amazing!! What do you think?
Here are some recent thoughts......
* I was totally late to this party, but the CD "American Idiot" by Green Day is pure genius! Especially the song "Holiday!" I bought it to listen to on my drive out to my friend Trish's house and I could barely stop!
*Also prior to the same car trip, on a whim, I picked up a CD by the Buena Vista Social Club. This is another masterpiece!!! If you like Latin music this is a must have. Basically, it is a bunch of famous Cuban musicians playing together. It is simply marvelous!
*Oh, and I got that new CD that features Mark Knoffler and Emmy Lou Harris and it is VERY good too!!!
*I am excited because tomorrow after work I am off to find the new edition of Somerset Studio. I got a glimps of it at Trish's house because she subscribes. There is something about Paris on the cover I think. Also, I want to get the new issue of Oprah magazine because on the cover it says it is the Summer Reading issue. That is so up my alley! As I have said before, I would like nothing better than to spend the summer at a cabin on the lake reading all day long!
Okay, it is 10:06 p.m. and that is past my bedtime on a "school night." Hope all is well with you my internet friends!
