Monday's Postcard: Biltmore House

This is a postcard of the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. An absolutely wonderful place to visit and I think this postcard is from when I was there on a school field trip in the 80's. I have visited the place many times. It is especially fun to go during the Christmas Holidays when they have the house decorated. I think there are letterboxes in this photo!!

Monday's Postcard: Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Okay, this card is from Boston from 1982 and shows the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. One of my favorite places to shop and eat in Boston. My parents were vacationing there without me...1982 would have made me 16 years old, I was probably having a wild party at the house while they were gone.

Wild Card: St. Martin

Wow, will winter ever end?? I have decided to insert a "wild card" here and don't we all wish we were some place like this. The airplane flies right over the beach on final approach at St. Martin. You can get a postcard with just about every airline represented! :-)

Monday's Postcard: Prague

Here is a lovely postcard that I received from a friend of mine who was traveling in Europe. It shows the bridges in Prague. I have never been, but I would love to visit there!

Monday's Postcard: Stowe Vermont

A friend of mine is posting a postcard a day this year from her Postcrossing collection

I didn't think I could do as much as that, but I thought once a week I could brighten Monday's by posting a picture of a postcard from my collection. Along with a little explanation of the card.

Today's card is Stowe, Vermont from a vacation that I took there in January of 1995 to go skiing. Unfortunately, no one told me about the "January Thaw" when the temperatures rise and there is hardly any snow. So we did not have much snow for skiing, but we had a great time none the less.
