Junking on the Postcard Junket

by 1 March 13, 2010 1 min read 7 Comments

I ran up to Austin for the day to catch the Capital of Texas Postcard Show and Sale.   I met some nice folks, picked up some great cards, and came home with some wicked hangnails from digging in boxes all day.
Next time I'm wearing gloves!
. . Here is my favorite find from the junket: a nice die-cut, novelty leather postcard.  It is so cool, - it opens up to hold your little missive.
Don't you think it would make a great invitation or hang tag?

For more information on Capital of Texas Postcard Club or their annual show and sale you can visit their website for more information.

did I ever send you more DDR labels and hangtags or did I go senile again?

I’m jealous! That sounds like a fun junking outing. I do think that the leather card would make a great hangtag. (I collect any cool hangtags that I can get my hands on…still need to make a collage with my Double D hangtags, as I have several leather crosses from the jackets as well as a number of the fabric tags from the jeans a couple seasons back!)

I haven’t gotten the leather postcard pillow out of my mind that you posted several months back…now you’ve just reinvigorated the collector in me!!!

No Cheryl, you mentioned sending those awhile back, but we never discussed it further…I need fit some “art time” into my schedule to play with said labels and tags :)

PS: I know as an admin that you probably get email notifications whenever people leave comments, but I can’t figure out how to subscribe by my email to new comments on blog posts that I have personally commented on. Any ideas as right now I’ve just been revisiting old posts to see new comments?

Time to set your sights on this pretty pastel, because a hue dubbed “digital lavender” has been appellated by industry experts as the color of the year.

Well, not really – Billy the Kid and his cronies donned nothing but dirt – but once again, super-stylist Lisa Martensen managed to create a look that was aesthetically pleasing yet felt authentic to the outlaw vibe.

So, what exactly is the deal with this season’s signature print? Well, let’s just say it works on a lot of levels.
