Postcards are good for advertising. I got 4 in the mail today.

Postcards are useful for advertising.  Lower postage than a letter.  As I was sorting through my mail there were the usual items, Catalogs (they want my business on cyber Monday) bills and also 4 postcards.  Not the tourist ones from friends, but several advertising PC and 2 appointment reminders, two for me the other for my cat.  And a wonderful auction coming up.

Candle Mat - Christmas gift that I made

I did finish the candle mat pictured on the right (pumpkin, but gave it away before I took another picture)  This heart with flowers mat turned out pretty good but its not perfect.  It is a Bareroots Pattern (store in Bishop California.)  I love their patterns.

Is this the Worlds Largest Postcard?

While traveling I can't help but look for postcards. Of course my first choice would be vintage postcards but I do buy new ones to send while traveling or take home to look at later.  I definitely grab the unusual ones and the size and topic of this postcard caught my eye.  I found the map of the Indian Tribes interesting since I drive across many reservations.  And the size.  It is a BIG Postcard 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches.  No specialized publisher.
