We bring postcards home from every trip
Not "ordinary" postcards
to hang on the walls of Linderhof
A tradition started long ago
on our first trip to England
Almost all are original
charcoal, oil, engravings and etchings
A few are hand-colored prints
We bought them originally because they were easy to bring home
Some were unframed and could be rolled up
While others, even with frame and glass, we "took a chance" on bringing them home as is
and if the glass broke, that could be replaced.
And . . . the most important detail
they are light weight!
All are dear to us
And because they hang in the upstairs bathroom
we see our "postcards" daily!
Four pictures along one wall
And three along another . . .
An oil that we bought in England of the English countryside
An 1870's charcoal of the Devon countryside
where our camera didn't capture any of our adventure there
So we rely on art
This bought long after we came home
The same trip
St. Ann's Gate
It is probably our favorite cathedral town!
And a street scene
Bought at a small "used" shop there
because it reminded us of a village we'd just been to.
I love the daily visuals of seeing the places we've been.
Warm fuzzy memories all.
It's Friday and I'm sharing my postcards for "Oh, The Places I've Been" with The Tablescaper
