Postcard Friday

I have been meaning to participate in this for a long time.  Marie holds this fun event every Friday.  Marie is from France and first left a comment for me when my family arrived home from Paris in January.  I thought it would be a great way to document my collection of vintage postcards.  I think they are the greatest inspiration to me.
I love to craft with these postcards the most.  Most postcards I have to make color copies of to work with.  So, lately I made charms with these.  During the holidays I glitter them up and try to add some kind of vintage trinket and a ribbon to hang as ornaments.
As you can see I have plenty.  When I go to sell them in person I hear people whispering--"these are
reproductions".......and I really don't know if they are or not.  They are in good shape and there is no postmark to show for sure.  So, I just started using them for crafting.  Not, only do I love them because I have so many.....but, I love the colors.....the sky especially.  They also evoke a time in History I wish I lived during.  It may have been hot, but I would love the beach more if
I could be covered like the old days.  I also love them because this is the town across the inlet from where we live.....it shows summer living at its best.  Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment to say hi!!  And, yes Marie you are not the only one----I am completely addicted to the computer!!!!!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!!!!!!!

Happy PFF Geralyn. It's mad - but it sure is great fun!

You have a wonderful collection! I like Marie's site a lot. Oh, and I love the beach. Sarah has been requesting that we go at some point this summer, so probably in August.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Linda

Yay! Your first PFF! It was a special one since it was about France. Ain't Marie the sweetest? I need to get busy and start playing PFF again too!
everything vintage

Yes, you certainly do have plenty! They don't look like reproductions to me, but it's hard to tell at this distance! :)

Geralyn, you know I love those postcards, especially the ones I have with the touch of red glitter! I can't wait to see what you have done with the charms. Hope you are enjoying the summer and your new job and the kids party plans.

Wow, that is quite a collection. That is a nice basket that you have them in, too. :)

What a collection!
How did you ever find so many?
Had to respond - my dau's name is "Jerilyn" - I thought I had made the name up 24 yrs ago!
Glad to see you are a part of PFF (I've only been doing it a short time)
