I had an amazing day in Montmarte, France. The day before, as we were roaming the streets of Paris, the weather has been terrible. Snow, harsh winds and sleet had our umbrellas turning inside out, and it was definitely less than ideal! The next day we planned to go to the small town on a hill right outside Paris, rain or shine (or snow), and we were so lucky to have gorgeous weather! For obvious reasons, my favorite part of Montmartre was the square behind Sacré-Coeur Basilica where artists gather to sell their paintings. “This ‘Place du Tertre’ is where the legends of 20th century art used to roam. Now it’s filled with watercolors, portrait sketchers and caricaturists. Picasso, Modigliani, Van Gogh and countless others lived and worked in these narrow streets.”

These are just a few of the pictures I took in the spectacular village of Oia, on the island of Santorini. So many places in Greece are breathtaking, but this small village was my favorite. With spots like these everywhere you turn and the striking white and blue homes on the side of the mountain, it’s pure perfection.
It’s official- there are listings in the 23Postcards Etsy shop!!! All the matting supplies arrived today, so I am ready to go! For now (as I perfect the prints of my mixed media pieces) I will be adding in a few of my ‘pictures from europe’ photographs. Not every photograph listed will be one I have written about already, but they will all be mentioned at some point!
There are only four listings now, but I will be adding new ones often, so keep checking back… and I hope to have the mixed media prints in the shop this weekend.
This is all a big ‘learn as you go’ situation, so if you have any trouble with the shop (or anything else), please let me know!
In other great news, the blog design is complete and should be getting programmed soon! I can’t wait for you to see it.
ps- If you are ever interested in buying one of the photographs on the blog, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Etsy and we will work something out.
I have thoroughly dropped the ball on the blog lately… it all started with a weekend trip to Wild Dunes with my best friend Emily for my birthday. Sitting on the beach reading delightful books, lounging in the pool and hitting our favorite places for dinners made for the perfect way to ring in my 24th year! Back in Tennessee the next night, I gathered with family and friends for one last birthday hoorah and pizza at Big Ed’s. I love birthdays!!
I was only home for three days before heading to Arkansas to visit family, and that’s where you’ll find me now, at Norfork Lake, sitting on a deck overlooking the water and a great sunset. My mom said this is her favorite place in the world (I haven’t been here since I was 4), and I can see why!
In business news, my sales tax form finally ARRIVED! This is the last piece of the ‘starting a new business’ puzzle, and I am so excited to get home and get going on the Etsy shop!
To make up for the birthday break, I’ll be doing two ‘Pictures from Europe’ this week!
