Some European postcards to share

I love old postcards!
I love to
read the messages and try to picture the writer as well as the recipient.
Since I'm feeling a little under the weather (must have been too many roosters-hehe),
I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.
They range from the 1920's up to the 1970's. Wait, the 1970's is not OLD!

Please feel free to use them in any of your projects.
I hope to visit everyone soon.


Aren't the messages just wonderful?

See you soon.

Bonjour Barb,
Hope you're feeling better today,I find a little nostalgia always helps and your postcards are just the ticket.
Paris hasn't changed all that much since these cards were sent.

Hi Barb!!

I just visited your shop and fell in love with EVERYTHING!! Do you have a button I can put on my blog?? I placed an order but somehow the order is going to be shipped to the billing address which is different from my home address. I left an email but am worried the order will go out before you get it!!

You can email me at

Again, love all of your French inspired treasures!!

Beautiful! I especially like that first one...the roof line and dormers are so quaint!

Hi Barb,

Just wanted to say that it was so nice to talk to you today, even though it was about business!! ;-)

It's always wonderful to meet a blogger friend in person and this was the next best thing! What a sweet and fun lady you are!!

Take care and enjoy your week. Stop by when you have a chance!!

I used to packrat these paper time machines myself and could spend hours reading and imagine who wrote them, who was the receiver and how they ended up in the places we collectors find them. Same with old photos and esp old photo albums that tell stories from decades long gone. It esp hurts my heart when I see massive piles at estate sales and wonder were there no heirs or family left to take in these orphans and these little black n white square pieces of photo paper embedded with loved ones, whos lives get scattered in the wind or worse end up in a trash heap.
We are the keepers of them now and even though I know them not they are a part of me as we may have crossed paths in a past life. We don't know these lost people but if you look around you'll find someone just like them.

Hi Barb,
I am really liking your postcard collection. It would be wonderful for any collage artist to have images such as these for layering in projects. You have a very nice look to your blog.
