Hand-painted cards increasingly hard to find but worth the effort!

An Owl Friend

Picked up this fellow for just £2.50 on eBay. I felt sorry for him as he had remained unsold for months and it was the equivalent of buying an unloved teddy from a charity shop. It had been used as a Christmas card but not posted. Signed from Ruby, Basil and Dad….I doubt any of them or the artist suffer from headaches anymore.

Lots more hand-painted cards on the Hand-Painted page and on my Irish Postcard Forum here: do sign-up and get posting!

Strange but not a thing of beauty!


I came across this unusual card on eBay last week and was slightly baffled by it. At first glance it seems to be hand-painted and yet it has what appears to be printed titles. I contacted the seller and it turned out to be a Lawrence card which had been over-painted. It sold for £7.51 – I wasn’t tempted!
