New Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 43

Before I introduce our newest team members I would like to tell you about a special Linky Party I will be hosting tomorrow morning.  The Link Up will start around 3 or 4 am and will go until next Tuesday.  You will have an opportunity to post  your favorite postcard or postcard art during this time so please stop by tomorrow and take a look.

Here are today's New Members of the Pacific Postcards Team:
 Windows of Nature Photography
Brent Coulter
 "After practicing photography as a hobby for over twenty years, it has been in the past five years that Brent Coulter has become “serious” and developed his “mind’s eye” with respect to his nature scape photographs.

Originally from Kansas, Brent has been a Colorado resident since 1992. It has long been his goal to capture the soul of the American West and bring these places into peoples homes. Brent’s patience and ability to frame his shots capture nature in its most colorful and resplendent poses and has earned him many awards. Brent’s work can be seen on calendars and post cards, in books and magazines." ~Brent Coulter
Lessie Blue
"I love watches, clocks, watch parts and all sorts of time pieces. My father was a watchmaker so I was always surrounded by them and fascinated by them as a child. That fascination has continued into my adulthood.

Thank you for coming to Lessie Blue. Put your feet up, take your time, look around and come by often.

Oh, by the way, when you get a chance visit our other shop-Baby Boomer Vintage. We have vintage items, retro stuff and authentic antique pieces:" ~Leslie
 Vintage french postcards - Collage Sheets - Paper Dolls
 "I am a Dutch lady, born in 1970. I am married and we have 4 cats. I love vintage postcards and working in Photoshop and Paint shop Pro. Other hobbies are mystery books and watching movies."
 A Printing Out Loud Production
"Hello! I'm Anthony: the middle son of Grace and Frank Bartolucci, who raised three boys in a creative home of love and support. With the passing of my father, I saw this as an opportunity to share his works of art with more people. So, with my daughter's help and talents, we built this shop with the desire to share Dad's talents and creative designs in the form of postcards.

These special postcards are of his artistic works over the years of his life. Some were made as original postcards, some are reproductions of his larger works, and some are tweaked with aid of new technology. These are all from his imagination from living a life from the years between 1928 and 2012.

In the latter part of his life, he developed macular degeneration and could only see peripherally. He did not let it stop his desire to create and by using different techniques, he managed to still keep producing artwork. In this shop, you'll be able to see his original artwork and as we make our way through his collection, you'll be able to see the different techniques he used to cope with his lack of sight throughout the years.

Thank you for stopping by, visiting our shop and viewing his works in a postcard format. To support my father’s memory, with every purchase a donation will be made to the Macular Degeneration Foundation. We donate in the memory of my father: a man and artist who truly saw life with his heart until the end." ~Anthony Bartolucci
Fibre Crazed - Handmade in Alberta
"Welcome! All items are handmade here in Alberta, Canada. I love creating - jewelry, sculpture, painting, printmaking, sketching, feltmaking...the list goes on!

Please convo me with any questions. Thanks for looking!" ~Elunderwood

The Rabid Raccoon
 "Hi there! I have been working hard to bring you this shop and I finally have! All of our items are originals, not reproductions. Our items are always changing so stop back often! " ~Marc
Vintage jewelry, upcycled antiques, and more!

"Antique dealer and hobbyist, specializing in estate jewelry, costume jewelry and accessories, photos, postcards and other paper ephemera, open salts and hankies, and re-purposing antiques into new treasures.

My 6-word story?
Obsessive about pretty vintage and upcycling." ~Stephanie
********************************************************************************** We have expanded our Pacific Postcards Team past the confines of Etsy. You can now join in the fun even if you don't have an Etsy account by joining the Pacific Postcards Team on G+ . Another great way to share our passion for postcards. I have not built a button for this yet so here is the link to our new community. If you know anyone that is in love with postcards and ephemera please pass this link onto them. Go to

The only difference in the memberships is that the latter will be included in shop
interviews, BNRs and postcard related activities. We also plan on having activities for
the general memberships. Hope to see you there soon.
Please remember that we have our very own Postcard Forum for any questions about specific postcards, collecting, creating, basically anything and everything about postcards. Finally found a rare card for your collection? Use the forum to show off that new found treasure.
