A friend recently showed me a collection of vintage postcards she purchased at a yard sale.Â They have been sitting in storage for quite some time now because she isn’t sure what to do with them. Framing them is an option for cheap art, you could have them blown up and applied to a canvas (remember Blueprint enlargingÂ a playing card) or you could justÂ mix them in on your inspirationÂ or bulletin board,Â punch them out for gift tags or decoupage themÂ John Derian style.

These are polaroids but the same look can be achieved with postcards.

If you’ve collected a bunch of holiday themed postcards, they can go on the tree if you have one or string them on some ribbon and have a postcard garland. Images above from Pottery Barn.
But here’s a display I keep running in to, postcards stuck in the molding around door frames or in this case topping the wainscotting.
