The Scrap Box recently received a “happy birthday” postcard collection. The cards were never franked though they are not in pristine condition; nonetheless they are charmingly beautiful. They seem to date back to the early 20th century with lots of flowers and flowery sentiments.

They could be used in collages, shadow boxes, journal or photo album covers. The cards are appealing enough to frame: nostalgic pictures of times as we wish the were. They are great bargains, priced at only $2 or $3 dollars each.
