summer dreaming

Although it is currently raining here in the Pacific Northwest and is supposed to all weekend, and although, truthfully, I am less enchanted with summer than most people I know - these postcards make me long to be on summer holiday, lying in the sun and listening to the sound of the canoe paddles in the water.

torro del lago

I adore this place, seen above. The postcard is not written on the back. Torre Del Lago is a town in Lucca, Tuscany in Italy.

This other image is closer to home. Lake Odell, Oregon. This postcard also has no message on the back. It looks lovely.

I actually got this posted in time for Postcard Friendship Friday. Take a look over at The Best Hearts are Crunchy blog and you can see all the other blogs that are participating and posting postcards today.


  1. I would like to be lying in the shade and listening to canoe paddles.

  2. I've been to lake Odell--it is really beautiful! These postcards are wonderful. You are right, there is rain here in the Pacific Northwest--lots and lots of it.

    I like spring and fall better than summer--it can get really hot--but at least here the heat only lasts a few weeks, or days at a time. (phew)

    Happy PFF!

  3. I would love to be in Italy!! Lake or no lake, though I would prefer that verandah.
    happy PFF.

  4. I just want some sun. It's raining in California this week - it's time for sun!

  5. I would happily sit on the deck of Torre Del Lago with a glass of wine and watch the canoe paddlers go by...Happy PFF!
