Vintage Travel Postcards

Well, I just spent 90 minutes scanning most of my vintage travel postcards for a clever little project that I am working on. When I go to antique stores, I look for old postcards showing places that I have actually visited. I like the ones with the antique amber and blue colors (and they actually inspired the colors of my office). Here are a few of my favorites:

Bacharach, Germany - the prettiest town on the Rhine

Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska
The Falls at Artist Point in Yellowstone National Park

Mount Rainier - no place is prettier when the lupines are blooming!

I will share my project when it is done - and I don't think it is what you are expecting! And if you'd like to see all my postcards, here is the set at Flickr.

Can't wait to see your Travel Postcard piece. Love the colours in the cards

My Hubby collects the same sort of Post Cards. They are called linen post cards because the finish looks like - you guessed it - linen! Love what you did with 'em and the train case!

You seem to have an eye for quality postcards!
If you have any that relate to the theme of WHEELS, you might be interested in participating in A FESTIVAL OF POSTCARDS. it's a great way to meet other bloggers with similar interests - or just show off your own blog!
All you need to do is share a postcard (re:wheels) then leave a message at:
and on May 25th I'll publish a link back to your post.
Happy postcarding!
