Darcy's Postcard Challenge. Wales


Lavinia is in Wales this week!
The 'sketch' is hand drawn onto water colour paper with charcoal pencil. The photo is from the net.
The story continues.

Lavinia’s letter to Gil.

Gil,
      I am on holiday in Wales, visiting my husband’s family, I thought I had better let you know as I am staying a month and will not get any of the postcards you may send until I get home in 4 weeks time.
I hope I am right that you would be back in Dijon for your Art Sale.
I can not give you my address here as my husbands family would not understand or approve.
I will miss your postcards while I am away!

                     Lavinia
P.S. ALL of those chocolates from Belgium were delicious!
PP.S I did try to draw the house I am staying at. As you can see artist I am not! Hence the photograph!

 Gil was sitting having breakfast outside the cafĂ© in Dijon when the owner brought him the letter, he knew as soon as he saw that familiar handwriting that it was from Lavinia!
Unfolding the contents of the envelope he smiled. Lavinia had included a small charcoal sketch which he knew she had drawn after reading the P.S. Why did he always read the P.S. first? He did not know!
He read the rest of the letter with a bit of a heavy heart, he hoped she was not having a hard time with her in laws.

He would write to her every week so she had his postcards when she got home.



If you want to see more postcards pop over to Darcy's blog!

Thank you to everyone for visiting!
