A Memory Wall For Postcards

I came across this photo yesterday and I just had to share it with you. (Sorry for the poor image).

I don’t know about you but I remember when postcards were a standard (and lovely!) way of sending greetings to each other. I have accumulated a lot over the years and have saved them all. But I get none, zip, nada, nowadays (and I don’t send any either!). The internet has taken the personality away from corresponding and I am the first to admit – I miss the old way! (And from now on I will be a better postcard writer).

So, for those who still have saved postcards, or maybe for you who travel and can pick up postcards from fun places around the world. Here is an awesome way of displaying them. In my opinion, this could be more important than any 6 figured art piece! (I am thinking all Swedish related for my wall).

The lamp is lovely too.

    I agree with you, however, i am one of those few people that still send postcards. I love getting them and love sending them. But this is a great idea. Maybe my next house.

  • Another fabulously inspiring photo..! The OCD in me might make it impossible to actually for me to pull it off (heh-heh), but I love how warm and lived-in it makes the space. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Beautiful.I love it!

  • Oh I love this idea! I’m about to travel to India and you have inspired me to send postcards (maybe even a couple to myself!!!). Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment… I look forward to stopping by yours regularly now that I have found you! x

    This is a fabulous idea! I remember when I used to actually send handwritten letters to people. I have saved all of the letters written to me over the years….I agree, it is a beautiful and sadly diminishing way of corresponding these days….

  • Monika! We really think alike. I’ve been collecting postcards forever and always wanted to this in a room. I have this photo in my files too. One day, I am going to finally do it!

    Angela, how exciting with your big trip! I have been to many places – but never to India. Share many, fun and colorful images with us! Monika.

    Jami, I guess that is the beauty with the blog world. Boy do we travel via lovely images! Don’t we! Monika.
