Sunny days and barbeques..........and postcard albums.....

I hope everyone had a great weekend, we did because the sun was shining! That's been a rarity around here lately, so we had our first barbeque of the season yesterday, so relaxing and fun........
Thought I would show off my new/old postcard album.......I've seen tons of these before but this one spoke to me on many levels...
First of all, it's red! And not bright red, just that beautiful muted color with the black writing. Looks kinda French, no? Then the seals that say "In Friendships Name" did me in.
Of course it wasn't priced so I carried it around awhile......and when I was told the price I was so very happy!
It has tons of space which is good, because I have tons of old postcards to fill it with.

Well, I'm off to finish a birthday present for my best friend......shhhhh, don't tell her!
Granted, her birthday was in April, but who's counting :).
We don't get to see each other often enough, but maybe that's what makes our meetings so much fun!
Miss you Mel, hopefully we can get together soon, I have presents.....(not above a little bribery.)
