Yesterday Don't Matter..

Because it's gone.. (Ruby Tuesday - Melanie)

My weekend included a trip to Oxford, which constisted of a lot of Sunday newspaper reading, cups of coffee and cafe stops. But, mostly importantly, a visit to the Ashmolean Museum which holds a fantasticly vast world art collection; one which seemed to be a compression of my entire History of Art degree!

I thought that today I would share these pretty postcards, from a temporary exhibition of Lucian Pissaro's prints. The orginals were printed at the turn of the century in England, although, I think you can tell that Pissaro had left his heart in France!
I thought they might make a rather sweet alternative to a sickly valentines cards! (Feel free to save them, print them etc.)
(click on them to see the post-card size image!)


  1. Really nice postcards :) glad you had fun in oxford.

  2. Definitely a nice alternative from the usual mass-produced V-day cards!
