Last May Hubby & I went to Portgual and France, where they wear the fancy pants (anyone get the reference?) While in Paris, I bought this touristy magnet as a gift but I loved it so much that the intended recipient never received it. I guess I’m greedy like that. So you can imagine how completely jazzed I was to find seven antique postcards of my hometown and surrounding area – including the best lake in the world (hey, its called Lake Superior for a reason) that have the same turquoise wash and red lettering as my magnet.
If you’ve been reading Dans le Townhouse for awhile, you know I have a bit of a love affair with Lake Superior. So I am extra happy to now own these:
I really love the turquoise wash on these postcards (that were originally tinted photographs). Can you believe these have survived 100 years?
Only one of them was ever sent and it is dated June 4, 1912. Check out the 1 cent stamp!
I know I want to frame them in white floating frames, like what I used for the small paintings in the hallway, and hang them in a row but I don’t know where. . . . see the townhouse Home Tour and give me your thoughts. I feel like I am running out of wall space.
