All Things Bright and Beautiful

7 Happy Kids

My mom sent me this postcard in 2000 when she was away on holiday. She wrote 'Happiness is these 7 kids". They are all adorable. Children are the future.

I am starting a new meme called Our Wonderful World Tuesday. Do you love our planet? Every Tuesday display a postcard from your collection which shows our world's natural beauty or the diversity of our many cultures or mankind's achievements. Anything that shows that this planet is worth caring for.

I do not have any of these cute postcards published by 'Nouvelles Images' but they are on my wish list.

  1. I would love to join in! I will be back tomorrow to add my link. Being mildly obsessive about these things, I can't publish early. :)

  2. Done now! I don't have any of the Nouvelles Images cards either. They aren't so easy to find and when I do find them, I mostly send them away. :)

    I hadn't realised Mü & Me were a South African firm. They have lovely cards.

  3. I'm in too, great idea. I find Nouvelles Images can be a bit illusive, I only come across them when I am away somewhere and then like Sheila send them on elsewhere.

  4. Hi, Jocelyn! So sorry I haven't replied, was busy with work. I'd love to join in of course, anything that makes the world a more cheerful place always catches my attention =) but... I cannot guarantee that I can follow the "every Tuesday" rule, due to my intense work at the moment. But of course whenever I can I will. If that's fine for you, then... *high-five*

  7. Hi Jocelyn! I would love to join in. It might take a while though to have the banner on my blog. I'm not a real computer whizz but I'm getting there. Also I'm not too sure if I have any postcards that would portray Our Wonderful World, but I'll try my best:)
