Safe Travels – Postcard Display

I haven’t traveled much in my life. But I have lots of friends that travel. Many people want to bring something back. I request postcards. My grandma has been sending me postcards from her travels for years. So I needed to find a way to display them.

A year or 2 a go I found a doll crib at my local goodwill. It was the PERFECT color… I have pieced it apart using the pieces for various things like the side rails as a trellis in my garden you saw in THIS post. So I decided to take the bottom part that the mattress would lay on to display my postcards. I stuck them in the metal where it would hold and used small clothespins from Walmart to hold where the metal wouldn’t. Here is how it turned out:

It is in the entry way so every time I leave the house I see all the safe travels people have had and it makes me remember to travel safely :)

Here is a close up of the piece of the bed:

It’s a soft blue color. The wall is not even though it looks like it in the picture. It looks like a blue speckled egg. Too pretty!

One more for good measure. :)
