Daydreaming | Postcards – the photographs, or the notes?

I’ve been busying myself on my days off (NO, I LIE – I’ve been lazing around!), decorating my room, personalising my four walls. I have some pictures up on the wall which I am very proud of, not to mention they make me happy every single time I wake up because they’re the first things I see. I still have a stack of Instax which I have not quite decided what to do with. Hang them up? Or stick them on the walls?

So much space to fill!


Not to forget, a bunch of postcards from friends, from myself; from all the traveling I have done the past year. 

I found myself smiling as I went through them one by one, chronologically. Best memories. And then decided that they have to go up on the wall.

But then, wait.

How should they be displayed? Which side should I display?

The photograph side…or the messages that come with the postcards? D: Such a dilemma.

There are more of these postcards!

Ah, how I miss the simple joys of postcards-writing in various cafes of each city I have visited. :’)
(And then looking for a post office and attempting the city’s language, trying to get stamps and to send them out. Aha.) 


Both sides are equally as important and meaningful to me.
But what do I want to see more – the picturesque side, or the love notes behind it



Which side would you have these postcards displayed?



Let me know x.



Toodles. ♥

    The picture, definitely 🙂 That’s for everyone to see, but the note on the back is my own, private little pleasure.

    Thanks for your postcard, by the way. It really warmed my heart 🙂 You should send me your address, so I can also send you snail mail!

      It just feels such a waste, having to stick any of the side on to the wall because that means I gotta take them down to see the other side, you know?

      And I am so so glad you received your postcard! For a moment, I thought it might get lost on the way! But yay! 😀 Will definitely send you my address – will message you soon! <3

    Speaking of which – I still need to send you something! I’m being late and a crap friend I’m sorry! I promise to get my stuff together soon.

    What a lovely thing to do! I like the idea of visiting post offices in different places. Why on earth have I not done this before?

      😀 You should definitely do it the next time you’re off travelling the world, Yasumi! <3 I suppose I wouldn't have done it myself if it wasn't because I have like 10000 postcards to post out each time, lol.
