How about a couple more ways to display those vacation souvenirs?

I love vintage postcards. Real or reprodutions. When I found these reproduction postcards I had to have them. Our main floor bathroom already had a beachy theme so they fit right in. I had the gates already attached to the wall and just attached the postcards to the gates with small clothespins.

Here’s a close-up of one of the postcards.

And here’s a look at the whole area. The small picture is of our kids during a trip to Florida a few years ago.

I had to get this shell ball.

It’s actually an ornament, but it looks perfect just sitting on the mantel.

These kukui nut leis were given to us as we entered the luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center.

They look perfect in our black, white and tan master bath.

Well, I think that’s it for displaying our vacations souvenirs. All very inexpensive things that fit easily into our existing decor. And a wonderful reminder of our 30th Anniversary getaway.

Have a Beautiful Weekend!

The pair of gates are adorable. Love your ideas. Especially the sand in bottle (another post). Wish I had done that with dirt in Europe!

Thanks for stopping by Atticmag earlier this week and commenting on the 18ft Kitchen Island post I did for Met Monday.

one more thing…your mantle is still as glorious as ever. You need to come give my lame mantel a makeover pronto!

Ohhh love the gates! Is that a gate on your mantel too? It’s so cute! And that wreath is the coolest I’ve ever seen!

Ok, I’ll just take the entire mantel contents and be done with it. Do you ship to Canada? :)

I admire the way that you use gates in your decor. They look great. I, too, love vintage postcards.
