White Wednesday By The Sea

I purchase these 3 beautiful picture frames new a few years ago,
knowing that someday I would find the perfect use for them.
They currently sit atop the new picture rail in my family room.
I think they frame these antique postcards perfectly.

I love combing through beautiful antique postcards in hopes of finding ones that have some special meaning to me personally.

These three postcards are from 1905ish,
and depict scenes of
and were mailed from locations at the Jersey seashore.
(my Jersey Shore bears no resemblance to a TV show by the same name)

I love the old pictures which were hand colored,
but the sweet notes,
lovingly composed and written are often the best part.

I am linking up to
Faded Charm Cottage
Be sure to check out all of the lovely dreamy whites.

enJOY A Lovely White Wednesday,
And All Your Blessings,

I love to decorate with things that mean something special or belonged to someone special to me.
Don't remember the Jersey shore being anything like the tv show either, but we did have fun :))
