I live in a beautiful area of Southern California just north of Los Angeles. 20 minutes to the city - but look out my window at the National Forest.

Architectural PCs: Museums, Churches, Schools, Government Buildings, etc. Either interior or exterior images.

Typical touristy PCs, preferably with the name of the city, state or country on it somewhere.

PCs of Original artwork. After years of collecting ATC's I'm moving up in size slightly & making postcards and am inspired by seeing what other people make.

PCs with images of artwork, i.e. the ones they sell in museum shops or that artist's make to advertise gallery shows.

PCs with Hotels/Motels/Motor Inns Either present day or quirky vintage

Comment: Wow! What a wonderful, amazing & somewhat creepy postcard! I would love to stay there, now it's a bed & breakfast! I really wonder too about all the dolls...when I was checking the mail I almost missed the postcard! It was all the way at the bottom and up against the side... So it really blended in...until I saw a doll staring at me! Lol really love the postcard! Thank you very much!
Response: Happy to hear you liked it! I worry that not everyone has the same idea of odd. And glad you didn't miss it in the mail. I've noticed lately that the mail is taking a really long time to arrive and I've had five things go missing recently, some coming some going so I;m glad you got yours!

Thank you for the wonderful vintage Oregon postcards for the PaperCutz July WTA. All of the Oregon scenes are familiar to me except the church in Scappoose, even though I did live there in the 50s, I seeing it. I have camped at Silver Creek Falls and enjoy both the Columbia Gorge and Oregon coast. So, these are nice choices for my collection. Thank so much.
