I never thought I would be a collector of anything, but I have found a new love…
I've spent many an hour in recent weeks, browsing through the huge array of vintage postcards available on etsy and other sites. The above are a few which I have come across. I find them so inspiring. I love the rich colours, the detail of the artwork, the fonts that are used and the embossing which enhances everything!
A little while back I received a lovely little parcel in the mail from Graeme of Jetsam and Juniper. Don't you just love the name? So with just four vintage cards, my very own postcard collection has begun!!
As convenient as text messages and emails are… I think we're missing out ladies!!! Wouldn't you just love to find one of these pretties in your letter box? I for one, would love to see the return of this tradition… the sending and receiving of little tokens of affection, to be kept as keepsakes and passed down the generations.
