Postcard Friendship Friday

Greetings from Red Bank, New Jersey.  My favorite postcards are greeting from postcards.  I want to show my collection.  I really didn't know where to start.  I was going to do postcards from Manasquan---where I live now.  But, I decided it would be really cool to show the postcard view and then take a picture of how it looks now.  I need to work on that.  Hopefully, I will be able to do that this week.
I chose the Red Bank postcard because Red Bank has been on my mind lately.  Lisa Kettell is planning an Art Opera for April 7-10 2010.  It will feature talented teachers, vendors and shopping excursions......Red Bank has a great antique district.  She will be announcing it soon on her blog and has set up a ning site so you can preview the site.  I am so excited New Jersey will have an artist's retreat venue.  I am really looking forward to this!!!!!

Oh Geralyn, are you going to attend? I could actually ask for this for my BDay! Maybe Joe and I will both be working and just loaded with extra spending money! Actually I can't wait to hear more. Love the postcard! hugs, Pam

It's difficult sometimes to choose a card to show, but I think you've made a great choice - something that rings a bell for you. I'll be interested to see your "then and now" pictures when you get time to do that.

Geralyn,

Love the postcard! I was wondering if the town you spoke of in your comment on my Victorian Beauties post was Cape May? NJ has such beautiful Victorian architecture in so many of its towns but I know that Cape May is one of the most notable. If it is Cape May to which you referred, PLEASE take pictures and post them! It is a place I have longed to see:). Perhaps we should co-host a Victorian tour across the country (or should I say around the world since blogland is worldwide) and have everyone post pictures of the Victorians in their towns-a virtual world-wide tour of Victorian architecture:).

Blessings,

Kim
