Well, okay, so the title of this blog post is a little
misleading... I am not actually in Atlantic City.
But this antique, Atlantic City
inspired me to imagine the
sound of the ocean, the sea gulls,
and to feel the sand between my toes.
All of that from an itty bitty
little souvenir someone
picked up while they were there
many, many moons and
high tides ago.
I love the 3D effect, the flowers
just shaped and molded there.
And to think it was made in Germany.
Were the workers at the factory
wondering what it was like to be
in Atlantic City?
Some of the souvenir postcards
(heavy black bathing suits)
Here are some scenes at night.
What fun it must have been!
Walking along with the
moon lighting the way.
They were always dressed
in their best clothes.
And soon, we will be strolling along
the beach, too!
It is nice to get away,
if only in my imagination.
Vintage souvenirs are great
inspiration pieces and I'm marking
my calendar for our first trip
to the beach of 2015!
Enjoy the day,
