The Fortune Teller

Every once in a great while, an eligible bachelor will come along just passing through the tiny town of Nowhere.  This sends the Spinster Sisters into a whirlwind competition for his affections.

After too many years of being unsuccessful in capturing a husband, the sisters finally went to visit the local Fortune Teller to learn exactly when they would find their men.


They now have it in writing.....
"There are no men in your futures."

The theme this week for Sunday Postcard Art is FORTUNE TELLER.  My postcards are all hands on made.  For the last couple of themes I haven't had supplies or ideas to fit the themes to make cards.  This week I'm attempting to come in by way of a backdoor.  This may not qualify.  And that would be ok.  I have a postcard to mail out now.  That's what matters most to me.

Here is the address side of this postcard.


Happy Mail Day!

Oh poor spinster ladies, I hope they didn't believe the bad fortune teller. Your postcard reflects their feelings I think, with the very subdued colours. Maybe they will have a very happy life without men, it's certainly possible, and they have each other.
It's a fun postcard for the challenge.
Now I wonder who is going to receive this postcard?

You don't have a crystal ball stamp Annie? LOL!!! I think your tale along with the spinsters works well. I have a friend who took spinning lessons on a spinning wheel from a woman and she nicknamed this woman The Spinster, lol!

Hope they are not unhappy, perhaps they will take up art and find fulfilment. like the lettering.

This is fantastic. Great artwork on the front, and I like that it has a backside, too. Whoever you mail it to will be a lucky recipient.

Remind me NOT to go see this fortune teller - your story is quite clever and the sister so sad.

I've always believed there's somebody's out there for everybody. At least I hope so.
I got the sweetest surprise in the mail yesterday! Yep my own handmade postcard from you! I feel very special now. I'll be showing it off in my blog soon. I'll let you know when it posts. Any time you feel the need to fill that artsy void just send them my way. LOL.
