In trying to get back up & running here, I realize that I shouldn’t be considered about going through the effort of omnibus postings (although I am so backed up, some of those may well happen). I’m going smaller & easier here, with just the two postcards I wrote out today. Both will go out in Postcrossing Forum tags.
The “Mud Pies and Jelly Beans” exhibition at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California, is pretty awesome, I think. It’s designed to look like a retro kitchen, and in addition to original food-related Peanuts strips, it displays character related lunch boxes (of which I had one) and food items (of which I ate a few). There was also a recipe card for chocolate chip cookies you could take with you!
**Instant update: In preparing the link to the museum, I discovered that the ongoing wildfires in the Sonoma County area have caused the museum to close indefinitely in order to clean the air & protect the collection. The status, as I write this on October 27, 2017, is that the museum is closed until further notice. I had already known that the fire claimed the home of Jean Schulz, the widow of Charles, and also so many of the couple’s treasures.**
The card goes out to a Snoopy lover in Nakatsu, Japan.
A Postcrosser in Nanjing, China, had this Jetoy cat card in her favorites, so I am sending it her way. I always enjoy seeing that I have a card that appears in someone’s collection of favorites.
Let’s end, as usual, with stamps, stickers, & washi tape. Do you have any favorites here? I always enjoy the shell stamps. I wish the Peanuts stamps were still available. At some point, I’m actually going to run out–but not today.
