The Versailles of Venice

These are some postcards I got in Venice. They look like little prints, so instead of sending them to people, I decided to keep them all to myself hehe. I think they would look cool framed one day. I couldn't resist them because the characters all look like they walked off the set of Marie Antoinette :)

i love framing cards and old drawings.

my grandma insisted on keeping this andy warhol paper bag after she went to this art show. now it's worth like a bunch of money.

i bet that will happen with your post cards!
