Pink Saturday

I am sharing part of my vintage postcard collection this week for Pink Saturday...
I love the graphics and artwork on these old penny postcards...
this one is embossed...
the talent of these early artists is amazing...
the detail in each one...
the time it must have taken to make sure it was perfect...
and to have the ability to add color to a black and white world...
what a thrill it must have been to have received one of these...
maybe they had just as much fun as I do when I find one that takes my breath away...
Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday (one day late)! Love all of your vintage cards! The first card is really intriguing, it's as if two different artists contributed to it, one drew the woman with amazing details and one drew the men surrounding her in a more sleek, stylized format. Have a great week, Nan
