Say it with bananas

Nothing sends love like a banana

One of my fabulous postcard correspondents from The Fountain Pen Network sent me this vintage postcard, which I just adore. Bananas?? Awesome. It has a raised texture (which should be more visible in the next photo), and someone (not my pen pal) wrote "Love to Lizzie, Ella" on the front.

"postcard" in 19 languages

Competing for top awesomeness honors is this bit on the back, which says "postcard" in 19 languages. The sender and I agree that this postcard must have originated outside the USA. I don't really know how old it is, but I find it utterly charming.
