What a great idea!

I used to collect postcards, they're all in albums, but after the kids came along, everyone sent the kids postcards instead -- which is lovely, truly, except that I haven't gotten around to setting up albums for them, so the postcards just live in stacks on our shelf.

Jody, I have my grandmother's postcard album from the turn of the 19th century. I've never put my own postacrds into albums but that's a really good idea. I have plastic bags full of correspondence, a lot of which is postcards, though I've also thrown some out. Albums would be a better option and especially now that I don't make phot albums any more (well, when did I make photo albums? Most of my pre-dig photos are in plastic bags too.)

I have a post card collection too! Just in a stack, no album. Every so often the kids rifle through them. This triggers conversations, interesting short stories at school and much leafing through the atlas or spinning the globe.

When I saw the title of this post I assumed you were going to do that thing where we all post our deepest, darkest secrets!

(Someone gave me some Baci chocolates the other day, and I stashed 'em and didn't tell SO about them. Had the last one last night...)
