Vintage Postcards

Last week my mom handed me a stack of postcards with an apology (?).  They were postcards that my great uncle, a bookseller, had sent to my great aunt when he was away travelling.  She couldn't bear to throw them away, but had no use for them.  Could I use them in my journaling?


 These are wonderful vintage 1930s, 40s postcards with postmarks and sweetly written notes.

I will use them!!!  First I will scan them, though, so I can get goop all over them and then I'll use the scans.

Lake Couer de Alene in Idaho

Thought I'd share.  Feel free to use the images in your artwork.

Tee Hee Hee.

Mardi Gras Madness! 

What a sweet little picture.  Kinda mini Romeo & Juliet

I can't help loving this one.  It's like the poker dogs and a post card (better than on a wall!)
My absolute FAVORITE!  Va va VOOM, baby!

Have Fun!

I'll be linking this post to (links can also be found under the "link parties"tab at the top of the blog):

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
