After sending off my postcard as part of the event hosted by Meeta of What’s For Lunch Honey?, I spent an anxious week or so quasi-stalking my mailman. For those of you that are regular readers of this blog, you already know how I feel about my mailman!

Finally, last week, I received an elegant envelope with the following written across the bottom, "For my favourite Puff … a protected postcard." A protected postcard?!

Eagerly, I tore the envelope open and found this lovely card inside. From the charming Janice of BakerBites, the beautiful postacard is the handiwork of naturalist painter Maryjo Koch. At Janice’s suggestion, I did some research on Ms. Koch and discovered that she is an accomplished artist. Among her creations are illustrations of old postcards. Lucky for me, Janice bought this card while visiting California recently, and decided to use the postcard for Meeta’s event.

Besides the enchanting quality of the postcard, what also caught my eye was Janice’s beautiful penmanship. As I’ve read the posts of all the different participants in this event, the one common theme was the pleasure of actually sitting down, picking up a pen and writing a message the old-fashioned way. With such beautiful penmanship, Janice, you should be writing all the time!

Thank you so much for the card, and for your beautiful words.
