Something You Might Not Know About Me...

 

Here's a little something many of you might not know about me.



In the early days of Ebay I started to collect vintage Halloween postcards. I love the graphics and have many framed as artwork on my walls. I especially love those postcards that feature mirrors or pumpkins. I haven't bought a new one in years as the prices have gotten way out of hand, but I love the ones I do own.


Sometimes there's even a message written on the back. It's fascinating to see where the card was mailed from and where it was sent. Many of the artists working at the time did incredible work.


I own all three of the cards I've shown and a few more. My hallway is a gallery, which also includes a series of six Christmas candle postcards, which I'll post at Christmas. As well, I have some "harvest" themed Thanksgiving postcards, again featuring pumpkins. This is my kind of art!

That is SO cool! I never thought of such a thing, but those are really neat ~~ and love the idea of the mirrors! I'd love to see pics of the ones you have framed.

Thanks, Melissa. I'll try to take some pictures. Not much room in the hallway for a good shot.

That's much more practical than some of the stuff I "collect"! You have your collection and art in one swoop!

LOL I do, Anny. That's what I love about it.
