Lately, I’ve been feeling like I need a vacation. Sadly, there’s no vacation in sight for me, but what I can do is enjoy my antqiue postcards!

These are scans of postcards from my tiny collection. (Remember my vintage Valentine postcards?) These cards are from the 1940s and 50s, and I think they’re so much cooler than today’s postcards.

I think my favorite postcard from the batch is the water skiing ladies — how fabulous are their bikinis?! This postcard represents “Ski Jumping at Cypress Gardens.” It’s from Merritt to Flossie and Everett — my ancestors! Can you imagine receiving such a cool postcard in the mail? What a treat that would be!

Which card is  your favorite?!
