Atlanta & Memphis, USA

Once again, these postcards were not scanned, but photographed instead – sorry for them being blurry. My printer/scanner keeps fighting my laptop & refuses to work properly. Please cope with the blurriness for a little bit longer! :)

Anyway, today I’m sharing two lovely postcards sent by O’Neal. Lovely postcards, both of them!
First is from Atlanta, Georgia. More info on the city – HERE.  And now, please look at the view. I’m not a glitter-fan in any normal situation, but doesn’t the glittery sky just fit the image here??? I kind of love it!

The second one is from Memphis, Tennessee. The postcard caption says “Azalea time”, and after a little snooping around on the internet, I think azaleas grow throughout the city & look pretty fabulous when in bloom. :)

Also, look at the wonderful stamps! I love all the stamps O’Neal uses on his postcards. I only wish Croatia had so many to choose from!

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have: a) a letter to write, b) a beanie to crochet and c) sleep to sleep. :D

Savannah, Georgia

It’s been forever since I’ve exchanged any postcards with O’Neal, but yesterday – this was in my mailbox. Two awesome postcards from Savannah, Georgia! Such a wonderful surprise!

First postcard is showing Fort Pulaski. Here’s what the little caption on the back of the postcard says: “Construction of this mighty fort began in 1829 and was not completed until 1847. Scars left by the Civil War mark the ancient walls which exceed seven feet in thickness. The fort was declared a National Monument in 1924.” There’s more interesting facts about it on Wikipedia, link HERE!

The second postcard that arrived is showing Forsyth Park, also in Savannah, Georgia. “During azalea time, Savannah is transformed into a sea of color as thousands upon thousands of plants burst into full bloom. This scene shows the Forsyth Park Fountain which was modeled after the one in Place de la Concord, Paris, France.“, says the printed caption on the postcard. Read more HERE!
Looks like such a beautiful place!!
