Celebrating Fall with Vintage Postcards

Fall is here!  The dogwoods have started to redden. The tips of some of the other trees are tinged with yellow and orange and a bit of cool is in the air. I’m loving it! Thought I’d celebrate fall with a few vintage postcards over the next few weeks. The first is Thomas Jefferson’s home, probably pre-1940, maybe earlier. Lovely in the fall color. Feel free to pin or copy for your personal use.


Note: Checked out a current aerial pic of Monticello. All of the trees are gone. So, this is a snapshot from times past.

More tomorrow,  Rita

Love-Struck Valentine Day Blog with Vintage Postcards

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Toward the end of the 19th century, many valentines and vintage postcards were humorous.The vintage cards pictured are from my ancestor’s ‘courting cards,’ vintage postcards from circa 1910 that my g-grandmother received from her friends and suitors which were saved by my packrat family.

Her Teddy Bare, my erotic short from Champagne Book Group’s Carnal Passions imprint, is a humorous BDSM-with-a-chuckle story that has evolved into a series, Cupid’s Back in Business, with the first story, Conquering Cupid, my current work in progress. Check out the blurb for Her Teddy Bare in Champagne’s Carnal Passion’s Aphrodite’s Island Series. Click HERE or cover to buy.

HerTeddyBar88x132“Diana will be his to serve if only he can convince her to play the game.”  After dumping her cheating fiancé, Diana Harper accepts an invitation to attend a private event at Miss A’s island retreat to experience her “most secret dreams and fondest fantasies.” Miss A gives Teddy to Diana as an “attendant.” Despite his best efforts, Teddy isn’t a submissive and the skimpy gold thong is ridiculous on a man his size. Although she’s not a domme, Diana plays his game to see where it leads. When Teddy offers her profound passion, the best sex ever, and the prospect of love, will she take a chance on another broken heart?
Theodore Bareston will do whatever it takes to win Diana’s love, even though “whatever” includes wearing a thong and posing nude in chains when Diana’s interest in her art revives. As the sexual tension builds and passions explode, can Teddy convince Diana that he is the only man for her?
