Quick Treasure: A watercolor postcard of the Temple of Love

A picture is worth a thousand words! In the next few weeks I'll be sharing a series of Quick Treasures, such as portrait details, vintage postcard scans, and more.

Today I'd love to share one of my favorite postcards from my collection, a watercolor postcard of the Temple of Love at the Petit Trianon. I'm usually wary of the "painted" postcards that became popular in the 1930s-50s--some of them tend to have an odd traced-over look about them. But the soft, romantic feel of this particular postcard is why it is currently framed and sitting on my bookshelf.
