Postcard Challenge week 13


After having to take a couple weeks off from Darcy's challenge, I'm back with my...or shall we say...Maggie's postcard and page. 

Maggie continues to send her drawings or paintings to Thadeus.



 
She writes:
Thadeus-
  Please let me know that you are alright. You haven't responded to the letter I sent from my Aunt's home. I had to skip my adventure to The Netherlands to care for the poor dear after her fall.
  I am having a wonderful cup of coffee here in Istanbul. Next I am off to explore the Grand Market. I know it will be a feast for the senses.
  Please write.       Warmly- Maggie


So that's why there was no postcard from the Netherlands.  
*wink*


My page has a small "mug rug" and some stained shipping tags. Maggie must have found some fun things to send home at the Grand Bazaar.

The pocket is from a chunk of altered fabric given to me by Belinda Spiwak years ago. I think it adds just the right pop of color and texture.

The coffee theme is great and your postcard really pops! The fabric pocket is a lovely addition to your book. Isn't it lovely when you find the perfect place for a long held item?

Oh your right that piece of fabric for the pocket was just the ticket. I think the design on your coffee cup is really pretty.

You are a talented storyteller, as well as, an artist!

Good story and lovely card, Turkish coffee and tea always seem to taste better than others! Glad you also re-use your canvases, I was thinking I was the only one who does it! Valerie

ah a nice cup of Turkish coffee...clever explanation for the missing Netherlands card ;)
The colorful pocket does seem like something picked up at an exotic bazaar

Happy almost April Halle!

Still trying to leave messages on your blog. It takes forEVER to get rid of that error message. Mug rug! Love the concept. BTW, Belinda's is a name I haven't heard for a long time!
