The season of the Three Graces

This postcard dates before 1903 and is in very good condition. What beautiful hats, I would have liked to have worn one. Click on the image in order to see the detail of the dresses more clearly.

I especially love the outfit on the far left. Absolutely enchanting! I can almost smell the rosewater mixing with the sweet smells of summer lilacs and honeysuckle. I guess the romantic in me is still alive and well! Ha ha ha! I love your postcards. It takes me to more simpler times. :)

I love how the fountains are offset from the circle. Very nice :)

Tawnya: I think that I would have a hard time chosing which dress to wear. My perfume would be violets.

Dianna: i find that the older cards are composed like a painting would have been. The effect of the image is very pleasing to the eye
