Good Morning Sunshine!
Ever since I began getting postcards from Postcrossing I've been wondering how to display them.
Originally I just started piling them on top of my workspace which is always chaos.
Then I started putting them into an portable accordian file case, which got them off of my already tiny cluttered work area but then they were out of sight and I was unable to enjoy or appreciate the beauty and the meaning of the postcards.
I thought about getting a decorative pretty box, but what good would that do?
They'd still be hidden away.
The other day I was cleaning out my hall closet and rediscovered a shadow box that had been stored away for years.
I finally knew how I would use it.
It's small, but it's useful for the time being.
Every single postcrossing card I have received so far is in that shadowbox now.
Of course, you can't see them all, but I have some of my favorites showing.
Now, I want to buy more shadowboxes, larger ones to display more postcards that I have received from friends, family and swaps.
This is only a 14x14.
I have about 60-70 cards in there right now.
And if I get bored looking at the postcards in front I can alternate it by just opening the glass door to move things around.
I would love to hear how you display your cards and letters?
Do you have a unique way of showcasing your favorites?
