Basket o' Postcards

by - November 30, 2011

I got this lovely little basket back in October at a garage sale.  I used it for Halloween and now with a simple switch of some ribbon, I'm using it for a place to display some holiday postcards:

I simply added some plaid ribbon and tied it in the front.  Then I added some white tissue paper and added my postcards.  My mom gave me the vintage Santa ones last year.  The larger black and white postcards are actually from Ikea.  They show Paris, London, New York, etc. in the wintertime.  They show some really pretty scenes!
I just couldn't hide the Paris one!  I have it propped up on this vintage typewriter.
