Vintage Postcards

I said I would share a few of the beautiful postcards I collect. I will post these on a regular basis, as I have said previously, I use parts of these postcards in my image making. I used the egg (bottom left image) in the image (far right) - "Alouette and Avila - The Egg Watchers".

I am working on a series of images with these twins - the birdy girls. I should have another image ready within days.

The girl's name Alouette \alo(uet)-te\ is of French origin, and it means "lark". The girl's name Avila \a-vi-la\ is of Old German origin. I think these names are appropriate for these mysterious creatures!
