Sponge Bob Postcard

When my kids were small we actually watched this cartoon a few times ...
Ah the memories!

Did you ever watch this show?
If you did ... did you ever notice Sponge Bob has a heart-shaped tongue???

Nope, neither did I.

So I'm linking this incredibly, uh, colorful postcard up with Guest Heart Thursday!

Where Were You?

When the mountain blew?

May 18, 1980 ... 
Mount St. Helens in Washington state exploded.
Also, mom's 41st birthday.
Way to go, mom!!!

It was a Sunday morning, and we stopped at the top of the hill behind our house to watch the eruption. I will never forget that day.

Hearts on a Bus

I had never heard of the "Buffalo Exchange" ... until I found several unused postcards at the thrift store. Of course the hearts caught my eye first!

Apparently there is a Buffalo Exchange somewhere nearby ... I may someday try to visit it - I'm very curious as to what kind of "new & recycled fashion" they trend!

Join us over at "The Best Hearts Are Crunchy" for this week's edition of "Postcard Friendship Friday"!

And be sure to check out "Guest Heart Thursday" over at "Random Hearts"!

Still Winter ... PFF

It looks like these guys are having a bit of fun at a winter party before spring finally arrives!
(Although I know most people in our part of the world are tired of the cold!)

I found this postcard at the thrift store, and couldn't resist the cuteness!

Oregon's Crater Lake Postcard

I was so little when our family visited Crater Lake that the only thing I really remember is the verrrry, verrrrry lonnnnnng straight road we had to drive to get there.
((As I recall I had to use the bathroom at the time, and there was a little urgency involved - which may help to explain this inexplicable memory))

Someday I will go back and get some adult memories of this beautiful place.

Devil's Backbone and the lake.

Oregon's Painted Hills Postcard

It's been more than 30 years since I've visited the Painted Hills in Central Oregon. These are incredible geologic formations - many are not much taller than a person!

I found this postcard at a local thrift store ... and immediately had the urge for a Road Trip!

Instead, I'm doing the next best thing and linking up with Beth's "Postcard Friendship Friday" - where I can go on a virtual "road trip" around the world!!!

Pastel Rose Postcard

 I found this beautiful pastel rose postcard in an old scrapbook.

The edges had been rounded off, but that's okay - it's still a beautiful postcard!
