Three Vintage Postcards: "Wish You Were Here"

Normally, we'd share both front and back views with our readers. However, as international copyright laws must be adhered to, and these postcards aren't nearly old enough for showing online, we're making this post all about the "wish you were here" factor. Our love of things foreign, plus the idea behind each message as it was sent midcentury from places like Seville and Venice, makes this a fun way to go. We hope you'll enjoy it for the same reasons we do. And anybody with a liking for handwriting may find any one of our three choices for you a delight to read through and use.
Some things withstand our cleanup process better than others. In this case, we aren't too pleased with the cleaned up variety, and feel certain there will be plenty of those among you who won't mind a bit any of the warts we've left on the faces of our 3 views. As a result, we offer this selected trio in their partially cleaned up states, and hope you'll like them as they are. 
Meanwhile, as Blogger's being a bit wobbly again here of late, I hope our many readers will find they are able to get into our blog! Lots of problems reported around today.
Oh well!
Happy Creativity!

Amy: I like 'em any old way, but I do get your drift. I especially like the La Spezia one. So brown and roasted almond toasty!

These are wonderful! Sometimes I like them better with a few imperfections. It seems to add character.

Mina: I like what you're saying here. It reminds me of our soul's character when we age.
