Postcard from Rapallo

I love the beautiful photograph in this Italian postcard. My tenuous connection to the place is my grandmother’s painting of the town, bought by my uncle when he worked there as a chaplain a few decades ago. It’s a very pretty town and if I remember correctly, I think there’s a statue of Jesus just off the coast, underwater.

I love this postcard. I’ve got some really interesting ones lately, since I changed my profile to say that I’d love to see historical artefacts. Its desrciption is, “South wall – Oration in the garden (13 C).” A bit of art is always nice!





Bella bella! Postcard from Italy

This postcard came from a Postcrosser but wasn’t an official Postcross. While I’m not open to direct swaps, I occasionally see an interesting profile and do one anyway. I adore this postcard, beautifully handmade by a really lovely girl from Napoli who must surely be an artiste! The back is equally pretty, all covered in lovely pink writing. I wish I was this clever – they are her real life cats!
