Postcards from …?

When I was in the Brownies, I gained one of my badges by collecting postcards and putting them into an album.

At this point I would like to make it clear that I did not leave the Brownies because they made me sew. I left because Brown Owl had favourites and I wasn’t one of them!

Okay, back to the postcards … As well as collecting postcards, I liked sending them. Unfortunately, as with everything these days, the cost of buying and sending postcards has soared, but I would still like to revive them as part of my snail mail project.

Recently, I found some old postcards, for a reasonable price, at an antiques market. The handwriting on them was beautiful.

When friends go on holiday, I cheekily ask for a postcard to add to my collection!

I’m also investigating the app, Touchnote, which allows you to convert your own photos into postcards.

Please let me know below if you’re a postcard fan ⤵️

  1. I’m a big fan of post cards too! My friend is currently travelling, she has been from like Jan 2018 and she is still off on her travels but every so often in new places she goes to she’ll send me a post card and I love receiving them, for one it’s nice to know how she’s getting on, but also seeing all the different places on the pictures is pretty cool!

  2. I love this post, Marie! And I love that you collect postcards, I’ve never thought about it myself but such a lovely idea! If I manage to get away on holiday this year then I’ll have to remember to pick one up for you! 🙂 x

  3. I enjoy looking at postcards although I never really thought of actually collecting them as a hobby! When I went to Canada last summer I got some postcards for a friend, as she loves collecting them! That app sounds cool ☺️
