To Mum, It’s my birthday. I’m sat in a pizza place with Jake. It rained today so we slept and ate a lot of nutella. Tomorrow we are getting up early to go up to the Aguille du Midi to do a famous/classic climb called Cosmique’s Arête, which finishes by climbing over the fence onto the veranda of the Aguille du Midi. for your blog. Love Stormé xxx
The poster style design on this card really appeals to me, I love the paring down of information and use of colour blocks. Chamonix is, of course, a world famous centre for skiing and mountaineering and was the venue of the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924. Stormé is obviously taking the opportunity to explore as much as she can.
Postmark dated 04-07-16 the card also carries the 2013 Marianne stamp.
Stormé is my daughter, she embraces life and has travelled extensively; a keen skier and mountaineer, who loves a challenge. Despite having a summer birthday it generally rains for her; so the weather comment is no surprise! Stormé loves chocolate in any form. She is caring and beautiful; I love her unconditionally and I am very proud of her.
I love the card too – there’s a 50’s feel about the graphics. I wonder if it’s a reproduction from the times – going by the cadillac type car and bus. It’s so great your daughter is joining in the postcard blog – she must have looked for something especially different. She has a beautiful name, it seems to sum her up!
It’s similar style to the old railway/travel posters. I’m pretty sure she knew I’d like it, which is why she chose it. Yes, it’s a name you either live up to or change! Thanks again for your comments 🙂
