Postcards can be an amazing collection -- whether you collect postcards from personal travels or from correspondents around the world. Postcards cover all categories and can be a sub-category of another collection or a major collection by themselves. Postcards take you back to a time when life was a little slower, more gracious and certainly more decorative.
Use these postcard galleries for browsing or perhaps use these free printable cards in your crafty projects!

Postcrossing, Random Postcards From Around the World
I love the vintage and antique Valentine greeting cards and postcards. It's a small collection added to when I come across the postcards and art at various antique shows and flea markets.
According to the postmarks, many of the postcards are from the early 1900s, the greeting cards are from a little bit later in the century, the 1930s through the early 50s.

I enjoy looking at and picking up the occasional holiday postcard. I love the old artwork and use my cards throughout the house as decorative items. Ideas include tucking a few into the Christmas tree and or framing an interesting card or two. I've also been known to use the art as clip art for different projects.
