Do you have a favourite search term on ebay? Every once in a while, I can be found searching for swallows, oils or watercolours with flowers, or embroidered postcards (I have a few I'll share here soon). Above are a few sweet postcards I found on my most recent 'swallows' search.

I often look for cute cake stands or children's prints. I love Etsy!

I do have favourite terms - I search for french industrial, antique linen, antique medical and entomology prints. I adore ebay and prefer to shop there than in the real world - much more satisfying to dig through all the oddness and then get all competitive bidding for the treasures you have found!

These remind me of a little card that I recently brought in a second hand book shop, they're so beautiful.

the postcards are so lovely.

lately, i've been searching google images for birds, 'birds flying', and cicadas! i kind of have a thing for all things wing-ed.

Thankyou for posting this. I've been planning on getting a swallow tattoo for a few months but could never find the right image. But I love the flying blue swallow you posted and so had my tattoo done on Saturday. So thankyou for the extra inspiration!

I live in Spain where the swallows return each spring to build their nests and raise their young. I'll be mentioning your blog with these beautiful cards in my next post.
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
