Postcards, Vintage Postcards and Old Postcards
Looking back over the years of my childhood I can easily see that I was destined to be a treasure hunter. A treasure hunter in more than just the sense of always looking for that valuable piece of art or collectible but in the sense that I could find treasures almost everywhere.

I would find something completely beautiful about how the sun's rays would cast down on an old decaying Tobacco Shed overgrown with wild purple thistle and Queen Anne's Lace and want to preserve that treasured image forever. Or I would spend many days wondering the fields, creek and hillside in search of an artifact, unusual stone or a new plant I had never seen before.

Obviously one can't capture and keep everything without becoming a hoarder. Along with that I am a type A personality needing organization and order, so building my little shops to pass these treasures on to others has enabled me to pursue my passion.

This wonderful little shop has been designated to host my digital creations and my passion to restore those beautiful antique images that might otherwise be lost. I carry several lovely instant downloads that you can use for you next creation.

All of our lovely vintage items, supplies and handmades have been moved to my Free Standing shops at:
http://www.ButterfliesInTheAttic.com
and more postcards at

At Butterflies In The Attic:
I love this shop because it is designated to all those little pieces that when put together can make something amazing. Have you ever looked at those plastic pieces used to prop the top of a pizza box up and thought to yourself "what a wonderful end-table for Barbie?" If yes you have just found yourself a place to settle in and browse. While we do not specialize in Barbie tables, we do have a treasure trove of vintage combined with new creations that tantalize the imagination. I do hope you will enjoy my Butterflies In The Attic.

At Postcards In The Attic:
This wonderful shop is featuring Antique, Vintage, digital and Handmade Postcards. Many of these wonderful postcards are over 100 years old!
Please stop by and check them out.


I am also owner of Butter In The Attic at http://www.ButterflyInTheAttic.etsy.com
