Usually I don't participate in blogging events -- there are too many and I don't have that much time. But, when Meeta over at What's for Lunch Honey announced her postcard event, I thought too perfect to bypass. First, it's neat to send someone a little piece of yourself....you select and buy the postcard and you actually write a message. In this electronic age, that's immensely appealing.
This is the postcard selected for my recipient. Actually, as you can see, it's more a piece of art. When in California recently, I discovered that one of my favorite artists, Maryjo Koch, makes her home in the Santa Cruz mountains. Unfortunately, there wasn't time to visit her studio, but I did pick up a few of her postcards (with no idea what I would do with them). Is that karma or what? She finds old flea market postcards and then does little doodles and drawings on them. What a fantastic idea...and now it's off to one of my very favorite food bloggers. A lady whose life philosophy is as inspiring as her food.
