I've always been a fan of postcards. With their beautiful landscape photography or the photo and hilarious quip combination plus a short and sweet message from the sender - nothing beats getting these in the mail. Josh and I still write each other and I'm sure to send a postcard or two during our summer absences. This year I picked up a pack of the WPA National Park Service vintage reproduction postcards from REI to send to the hubs.
We're a camping family and these are perfect little reminders of where we've been or want to go. These prints are gorgeous. I knew that I didn't just want to send them and shove them in a box to be forgotten. So I took the postcards and four IKEA Ribba frames at $1.99 a pop and created some amazing graphic wall art for just around $10 total.
Our grand plan involves a big ol' classic road trip with the family piled into a Volkswagen camper van or towing a shiny metal Airstream, sleeping under the stars and eating far too many fire-roasted hot dogs than a human being should ever consume. When will this trip happen? That's still up in the air but at least these prints will keep my imagination and my desire for that classic family vacation fueled until it does.
So what about you guys? Have any quick art projects to share? Love postcards as much as I do? Or are you gearing up for that one last camping trip before school starts?
Until next time,
