Good morning and welcome back. I’m a little late with my post today since I spent all day yesterday walking around Washington DC. I’ve lived an hour north of the capital all my life and have never seen the cherry blossoms in bloom. This year all the stars aligned… it was a beautiful day, it’s the week of spring break, and best of all the blossoms were still out.
This is the view of the Jefferson Memorial thru the cherry trees. We did walk all the way over there, passing the Washington Monument, the WWII monument, the Martin Luther King Memorial and the memorial dedicated to FDR. The cherry blossoms did not disappoint, they really are beautiful.
I won’t bore you with all my DC photos but we finished off the day at the Smithsonian where we found this Good Humor truck parked outside. Does anyone else remember this iconic truck?
This truck dates back all the way to 1967. I remember this truck. This is the truck of my youth….So why does this truck have a HISTORIC license plate on it? That’s just not right.
I have a beautiful and easy diy for you today, a gallery wall to display all those postcards you’ve been collecting. It was super easy for me since it was actually created by my sister for her home.
The frames are all painted white which allows the artwork from the postcards to shine.
The postcards are attached directly to the wall with removable mounting putty. If you have an extensive collection of vintage postcards this would be a great way to show them off with the seasons.
This frame used to house a mirror, but after the mirror fell off the wall and broke it was kind of unusable. Even though the frame broke too, a little glue and it too makes a great frame for a postcard. Love the bow on top.
So don’t toss those random mismatched frames even if it seems like they are broken or unusable, there still might be hope.
