New Bird Digital Downloads and Etsy Sale

First I would like to mention a sale I have on in my Etsy Store. If you buy 3 digital downloads you get 1 free and if you buy 6 you get 2 freebie digitals.

Here are three new digital downloads that I have put on Etsy recently. The top French bird postcard I love and posted a similar one a while ago with a lovely blue French stamp and script but I thought I would remove them to give more room for creativity. The lovely lilacs and birds is also French from 1903 and you can see that I put up another without the script too. Loved the very soft colours of these. My husband's mother was French Canadian her mother was from France so we really enjoyed our very short visit to France last year.  

Have a great week, Jean

All I seem to want to do lately is design and fix up vintage postcards, mostly French ones because they are so gorgeous. I have been collecting postcards since I was 3 when my grandmother gave me her postcards that she had saved from Scotland, I was hooked and have been collecting since. I also collect antique children's books and other memorabilia. I seem to be am a collector by nature and I always enjoy all that I can about all of my collections.

I have always been interested in the way the French used to place their stamps and this postcard from my collection shows all of the sentiments involved. You can find this card with many others in my Etsy shop.

I hope this blog will be a sort of journal through my digital designing.
