Post it!

How do I love a vintage postcard...



...let me count the ways!
(this in one of my favorites!!)




The illustrations are so pretty!




The colors are gorgeous!




Cream & pink...how can you go wrong!





There always seems to be an abundance of
ROSES!





Christmas postcards always make
you feel like you're just one sleigh ride
away from that winter wonderland!





They were never shy about keeping you
on the straight and narrow!





Uh-oh...how did that happen...
more pink? ;)




They are true works of art and fit to
be displayed!!

  2. Roses really had magnificent fregrances in "the old days"... I'm always reminded of that when I see old images of them.

    Pleasant day!

  6. Love, love, love old postcards! It breaks my heart cutting them up in projects, so I always end up printing images I found on the web, and still my collection of postcards keeps growing! Lol

  8. Oh, my goodness! What wonderful postcards--thank you for sharing them. They are just beautiful. I hope you don't mind, but I'm adding a few to my "cyber" collection. They surely do inspire me as an artist.

    Thank you, and Happy PFF!

  10. Wonderful collection. I do love the old cards with wonderful sentiments (even the straight and narrow)! *They* just don't do that anymore. Email will never be the same as getting one of these cards in the mail!
