At the recent brocante at Chatou, I couldn't resist this Napoleon III wire postcard rack. I am mad about sculptural objects made of wire. While the original finial is missing, this one will do until I find a proper replacement. There's only one problem: there's not room in the apartment for the postcard rack - something else will have to go!
At present, the revolving rack is filled with readers' delightful postcards from the Postcard Project. Thank you! At Christmas, I will fill it with holiday cards tied with ribbon. In the new year, photos of family and friends will replace the cards. It could also be stuffed with flowers or vintage Barbie clothes on tiny hangers. Perhaps it would make an interesting art piece, if filled with advertising memorabilia or blocks of typeface letters. Or for a gardener, vintage packets of seeds; for a chef, recipes. Maybe vintage children's flash cards? Or language flash cards (if I actually had such a thing), to help improve my Spanish? Do you have any more ideas for the postcard rack?
