postcardchallenge/ France!

Japanese footbridge/ Monet's garden, Giverny
My favorite place in all of France!

Postcard back!!!
No room for words!

I had a cigar box that I decoupaged years ago and decided this will be where I will keep my postcards from my trip around the world!!!!

Oh, what a great way to tell about France! There's no need for written text on top of all those clippings! ♥
The box looks wonderful! But how do you keep the cards in order? Are you going to place them on a ring or something?

Ah... so beautiful... I wonder if Mr Monet had any idea how famous his painting would become?

Monet's water garden pics are so beautiful and relaxing,Though it doesn't look like your character got the benefit lol :D XXX

What a great idea!! Now where did I put all my postcards...need a cool box too...heading to the cigar store and hope the owner isn't there because he charges for his boxes, but his sweet assistant just gives them to me!!

Have a great weekend, funny woman!!

Beautiful painting.
A cigar box was one thing I had considered to hold my cards as well but ended up going with a book.
