Penny Postcard: Classic Books & Vintage Bookmarks

We would like you to meet Penny Carter, a 12-year-old little girl living in the countryside of Idaho, who writes weekly postcards to her dearest grandmother, Betty Richards, from Auburn, Washington. An old-fashioned girl at heart, Penny is learning to sew, crochet, knit, embroider, and many other needle crafts with her Mama. Her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Carter, own a small sewing machine shop, which allows Penny the privilege of playing with remnants and extra samples her Mama brings home. She also likes to bake and scrapbook and will write of these experiences to her grandma, who lives several hundred miles away. Sometimes Penny will tell of her latest adventures, the books she is reading, or even how things from the newsfront are affecting her life and happenings.

While the setting is present-day, the nostalgia of yesteryear will warm any reader's heart. Her writing will be concise and sometimes simple. After all, postcards offer limited space, so Penny will have to be creative with what she includes!

We hope you will enjoy getting to know Penny Carter each week as she gives us small glimpses of her life every Friday.
