In March I purchased a charming French postcard booklet from Cat at Sunday Brocantes who opens her online shop once a month. For the first two days of each month you can purchase lovely French goodies that Cat collects “brocanting” near her home, Rabbit Hill in Normandy France. The postcard booklet is from Cote d’ Emeraude on the coast of France. From a bit of online research I learned that since 1890, Cote d’ Emeraude is used to refer to the stretch of coast between the bays of Mont St Michel (St. Michael’s Mount) and St. Brieuc. This area is famous for its wonderful panoramic views at Pointe du Grouin and Cap Fréhel. Beach-lovers have a hard time choosing between St. Lunaire, Sables d’Or les Pins and Val André.
I fell in love with the beautiful blue and aqua colors on the cover of the postcard booklet from St. Lunaire.
The postcards are black and white but the white aged to a soft cream color over the years.
I did take one card out of the booklet to decide how best to display the postcards.
Laurent-Nel, Rennes was the publisher of this vintage postcard booklet. My online search leads me to believe this booklet dates to the 1930′s or earlier.
The bunch of French lavender I used in these photos is a recent Target find. The Smith and Hawken handcrafted swag of French lavender was grown and harvested on family owned farms in the heart of Provence and it smells heavenly.
I’m glad you stopped by today to see my beautiful French postcard booklet. Be sure to come back soon and if you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail, so you will never miss a post. I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest here. Thank you for visiting!
