Two is for Joy

Here are the two postcards I send out for my blog's
Valentine's mail art swap.
This past year the poem about magpies seems to keep
popping up in my life. (books and movies)
Magpies are thought to be bearers of omens.
One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a wedding
Four for a birth
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret,
never to be told
Eight for a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten for a bird you must not miss

I'll be posting all the wonderful art that has turned up in my mail box.

Until about six months ago my husband traveled extensively for his job.
Our lives changed when he took a new position in the company.
He is now home for dinner every night and home on weekends.
( It's been pretty great!)
But this week he had to leave.
I have been a slug.
I get to watch what I want on TV,
so hooked on The United States of Tara.
( Netflixs, 36 episodes, I'm on 18)
Dinners have be slim pickings, laundry a tad backed up.
No art.
I'll be back on track in a day or two.
18 more Taras to go!
