Vintage couple postcard Friday Vintage Freebie


Looking for a couple vintage image for Valentine's Day? This French postcard dating to the early part of the last century (postmark is 13 or 23 February, 1908) would be perfect!

The original is in very poor condition and this is as clean as I can get it. For me this is not a bad thing, I like images with a patina. I used a cropped version on this card here and am sharing this version with you as well. Up to you to chose which you'd like to use. Notice the damsel's bare feet? The original has written at the bottom pour la beaute d'une fillette aussi pauvre que mignonette (for the beauty of a girl as poor as she is cute). Her clothing is tattered more in the original, which I mended a bit in the touch up.


Please note this image is for your personal use only. If you use the image, please link back to me.

I'd love to see your creations! I hope you'll email me a photo of your work or post a link to it in the comment section of this post. Just right click on the image and save it to your computer.

Bon weekend and happy crafting!
