Experimenting/buys/something for you

I was experimenting with sepia and black and white images whilst at The Kent and East Sussex Railway and Bodiam Castle.

What do you think?

My buys from our holiday:

A new book from a Charity shop, some lovely vintage postcards. A flower fairy pencil, a little Frys chocolate tin, a pretty summer postcard and a lovely card that my hubbie bought me.

Here are the scans of the postcards:
Please feel free to use for your own personal use.

A beautiful handpainted card - 1910

I love the sepia ones!!

You could have those made up and sell them as card toppers, or have them made INTO cards:)

Love all the bits and bobs you bought too.

Why dont we get all those lovely little poems now?

Its as if people are afraid to show their feelings now isnt it:(

Thats why I had my signature as, love Michelle x.

The sepia instantly gives the image age and character. Love it!

Lovely postcard finds. I enjoyed seeing the closeups too.
