something old becomes new again

I found out about iHanna’s postcard swap and signed myself up having no idea what I’d make.

It turned out to be a good opportunity to make use of some old photos that I found. The photos had been put out in a bag on the sidewalk (including negatives!) here in Z├╝rich.

The photos are dated 1967 and they show Swiss farmers in their homes, in their gardens, in their fields and in their barns.

For the 10 postcards, I took a photo and put it in old-fashioned photo corners. Then, I picked up the pattern in the farmers’ dresses and made a little drawing.

Now that I’ve finised my cards, I’ll take them to the post…and then I can wait to see what arrives in my mailbox in the days to come.
