Christmas Cards – Sketches “1948 & 49″

 

Hope you enjoy your “1948 & 1949” Christmas Card!  Fun stuff, I am taking photographs of old sketches and making them into new DMarie note cards.  My husband’s grand-father H. Walter Leavitt (HWL) loved to sketch the outdoors all 4 seasons from “1931 to 1952”.  I have many sketches to choose from because of his love of nature and hiking in the Maine woods.  The next set of cards will be Mount Katahdin (his favorite place to hike) it is the highest mountain in Maine at 5,267 feet. Named Katahdin by the Penobscot Indians, which means “The Greatest Mountain” in the Northeast.

I Love Fishing Boats – Both Old and New

 

Îles de la Madeleine

In September 2017, I was on the Magdalen Island which is so rich in culture it is a photographer’s paradise.  I love to take photos of the sea, sand, shells, shoreline and fishing boats.  I love to capture the names of the fishing boats both old and new.
 Oh, the stories Lady Bri could tell us!DMarie CardsÎles de la Madeleine in Quebec, Canada

“Each of the archipelago’s seven inhabited islands has its own features and attractions. Since Route 199, the main road crossing the Îles de la Madeleine, is only about 85 kilometres (55 miles) long, it makes sense to explore each island and all the harbors.  https://www.quebecmaritime.ca/en/discover-our-regions/iles-de-la-madeleine
