Vintage Postcard Story

There is a store in Kirkwood, Missouri called the Checkered Cottage.  A quaint little store.  They recently had a Holiday Open House where the windows were decorated with HUGE blowups of these gorgeous vintage postcards that the two owner's (sisters) grandmother had saved throughout the years.  The display with breathtaking to say the least.  They took these postcards and made sheets of them to sell.  Here is my first rendition of one of the postcards.  Love, Elle
I used some of the beautiful trim that I received in a fiber swap with the group Art For The Creative Mind.  I thought that it really set off the vintage feel. 
Here is a closeup of the postcard image:
