That was quick.....

Well, the new cards arrived today which is great as I was not expecting them until Wednesday.
I am really pleased with them and have posted two of my favourite ones here. The first is the little boy with all of his toys and the second one is of a little boy dressed up for a football match and I think this one is close to being my all time favourite card ( another one ! ).

New material

I managed to win some new cards on Ebay last week and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. They are mostly of children and many seem to have come from the same family which is an added bonus. There are a couple of gems in the batch including one of a little boy with lots of old toys.

There are lots of individual cards being sold on the net but if I collected this way it would cost me a fortune. Most of them have a starting price of over £1.00 and could go on to make a lot more. Buying in batches brings the price per card right down and although there may be some not so good ones in the batch it is the best way for me to increase my collection.

So, look out for the new batch which should arrive early this week and uploaded to Flickr by the end of the week.

My most viewed card

As it stands at the moment this is my most viewed postcard on Flickr...


This card has 1254 views as of today and the nearest one to it has 562 views so this is way out in the lead.
I can see why as it is a favourite of mine too, it just has everything !

Storage !!

After scanning and uploading these images to flickr I have in the past transfered these cards to albums but it soon became clear that I would soon run out of space to store these so today I have purchased some storage boxes for my cards. This keeps them tidy and maybe in time I might be able to transfer to albums when I get some more space.
They look so much better in albums and are a joy to look through when I feel the need but as they say...needs must !

Off we go again !!

Well, finally managed to start scanning again and uploading a few more pics to FF. I have not long been back from holiday on The Isle of Wight and while there managed to get a few people postcards from a book fair at the Botanical Gardens in Ventnor. Just uploaded three of them and will do the rest later.

Must get on with my other blog as well before my brain goes !! I have been finding it quite easy to remember my childhood and all the people and places but I daresay that one day things will not be so clear.
