China


Is where we go today for our 52 Postcard Challenge brought to us by the Lovely Darcy of Art & Sole. I opted for a simple cut & paste photo from a cruise catalog, traces of gold acrylic paint in a distressed sort of way.

From Allen to Liz


and it says:

Miss Liz E. Woods
                         
Oh I see. Now to think about it she did say as much but I didn't really believe she would. I know she always wanted to travel in spite of her condition. And the way she spoke of her dreams for you. I dare say both dreams are well on their way. I hope you are at least learning to enjoy your journey as I'm sure that was part of her plan. I'm sure that if it is too much for you she would very much understand you returning. Surely that is not a condition on your inheritance.
All my best                                     
Allen Bell

ps R. H. sent a package from Mrs. de Foil to me. I am grateful, but once you return if you would like the contents I would be happy for you to have it.



Happy Arting Y'all

ps for past Postcards go here

LOL - Edited to add the photos
