I'm an accidental collector of vintage postcards. It started when I saw a few old picture postcards of places that hold special meaning from childhood vacations or favorite road trips. Then I began looking for vintage holiday cards to use in collage and craft projects.
Eventually there were enough cards that they demanded organization...a wooden box and dividers were added. I wonder if that's when casual purchases become a collection...when they finally require a home of their own?
Here are a few vintage cards that I found at the flea market this week...none were over $1.00.
Maybe I'll hang this one in my office?
This one reminded me of my sister, Nancy, the inspiration for my blog.
And how cute is this one? The dog is painting a portrait of the cat!
I can't resist cards with children on them ...
You can never have enough vintage postcards to cut and glue for craft projects...
And their graphic quality makes them perfect in vignettes for home decor.
I even learned a new word tonight while preparing this post..."deltiology"... the collecting of postcards.
