Kate moved to Portland for college three years ago, and though she goes home to Pennsylvania over school breaks, she mostly considers Portland her home. Portland is a very rainy city, but Kate notes that people don't carry umbrellas, and only reluctantly dress in rain gear. As she puts it, "it is just a fact of life that we get wet when we go outside between October and June."
For those who can't get enough of orphaned postcards, Kate also has an adoption program. Her blog journals her postcard adventures via sites like Postcrossing, Sendsomething and Walltype, too.
This is one of many orphaned postcard donated by Katie in Washington, who writes the blog Red Tin. She recently posted an interview with a mail carrier, who also happens to be a fiber artist, like Katie.
