Like a two-year old, I am a very tactile person and I love postcards that beckon you to touch them! Like this darling French postcard that has a "gold" heart trimmed in ribbon rubbles and a bow with a real photo of a bride and groom in the center. This 3-D piece of bling is attached to a couple of small tabs that allow it to be pulled away from the pink church scene background. Due to the hair style and the pink overtones on the background card, I'd date this card to the 1940s or '50s. On the back, Jeannine wrote "receive from your dear friend best wishes for happiness and prosperity." You may want to add this card to your collection or -- send it to a bride-to-be as part of her 'something old, something new' good luck charm:) The card is creased across the top of the pastoral church scene. Who notices? All eyes are on the wedding couple! The 'gold' heart frame surface shows some wear from aging. Direct scans of a postcard are extremely unforgiving. When you see this card with the naked eye, holding it in your hand, I think you'll agree with me that any signs of age are inconsequential to the classic, enduring charm! The card measures just under 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
