The French & Italian Riviera


I scored these amazing vintage hand colored postcards of the French and Italian Riviera over the weekend...


and just had to share them with you!


Don't you feel transported?


I feel relaxed and happy just looking at them!


Oh to be in the South of France right now...


This is definitely the next best thing.


N'est pas?

I adore vintage postcards. Have a few I can't seem to part with. My mother just gave me some french ones as well. They are from the war and have lovely notes written on the back.

Awesome find! We've been to Nice a couple of times and I just love the thick palm trees. I love vintage postcards - I've got some framed Martha's Vineyard ones in my guest room :)

Riviera... haven't been there for a long time. At one point I took every fall a there - four day side trip between fairs in Italy and France... unfortunately the fairs don't excist anymore and I haven't been to Nice for several years.

These cards really took me back.
