One of my favourite postcards is from the early 1910s. The background looks like it’s patterned off the birch trees of my hometown, and calla lilies are laid over it as if they belong there. It says, “Wishing you a happy Easter”. Simple. Beautiful.
It’s from the first lot of postcards I ever purchased.
I even removed the message so that it could be turned into a card for… pretty much anything. Sure, calla lilies do have a special place in Easter card lore, but there’s no reason that this piece can’t have a new life as… perhaps a birthday message?
What do you think?
