I love postcards, especially old ones. Old ones that have handwritten notes that were sent 70 years ago. The handwriting in particular draws me in. I can almost smell the Old Spice and old lady perfume exchange happening. Yummy.

I found these to stir my imagination. Enjoy.

The weeks have gotten away from me. From painting rooms in our home to weekends in St. Joseph, we have been in a flurry of festivities. And yet, these little beauties managed to grab my attention so I thought it perfectly perfect to share them!

So that is all I got this week.  I am getting pummelled with inspiration and I can’t wait for the process to begin. It starts of with images and influences and irritations. They settle and find their appropriate places in my mind and then they manifest into a garment or a company or just an idea. These images account for exactly one half of a freckle of an image in the process. I’ve been collecting handwriting from postcards from the late 1930’s and they equal the other half of a freckle.

Well then, I suppose that is that!

Cheers,

Amy

Those who know…know that the Seeberger Brothers are in the top 10 favorites of my favorites. And here is one of their images of the sasstastic to spark up my desktop calendar for the month.

I shall pretend I am in Deauville all month.
