Postcards like these are of course nice to receive in the mail, but they are quite popular for displaying on a little cardholder in a chosen spot in the home to create a little corner that changes with the seasons and holidays... The lovely illustrations can be a gentle and reliable companion with our inner and outer worlds as we travel through our year. Also as part of a display, some people chose little treasures found outdoors during a walk, or small scenes they set up to represent certain celebrations or traditions of the season. Some fresh flowers, some found rocks or berries or leaves, pinecones, all sorts of simple items can come together to create a 'nature table'.
The Sailing with my Boat postcard in particular captures the essence of childhood fun. Nice to create a protective mood and to celebrate the wonder and play of childhood. And a little inspiration for this special activity that we hope for children to experience.
A boat on a stick with a rope can help ensure your boat doesn't get away from you in a little river with a current, or maybe you might sail it in just a little or big puddle in your backyard or neighbourhood.
