And, this is the back of the display.  All 52 postcards fit on the front and back of the blue carpeted display board.  (Double click on photos to see enlargements).

Postcard stories and table display.

A small table was used to hold the binder with all the stories behind the postcards and a few postcards that are meant to be picked up allowing the back to be admired.

The Postcards just returned home from Western McGown Teacher’s Workshop in Eugene, Oregon.  They participated in the rug show and were given a position of prominence.  They were displayed on a blue carpeted stand and never looked so good.  The blue background only enhanced their beauty.

At the awards show on Thursday night Jane McGown Flynn picked several rugs from the  rug show that appealed to her for specific reasons.  This year she singled out the “Blue Whale,” hooked by Cai King for acknowledgement.  She said that the restrained use of bling added to the impression that the whale’s tail was breaking the water’s surface.  She was struck by the detail that is contained in these small scenes.
