Over at Beth's Postcard blog The Best Hearts are Crunchy she's celebrating Domestic Goddess Day for today's Postcard Friendship Friday meme. I am delighted because I have just the right vintage postcard to share for this topic - a Neapolitan woman in traditional costume. My tastes in vintage postcards vary and when choosing to add a new card to my collection I'm motivated by all sorts of reasons: I might buy a postcard for its historical importance, or maybe for the postage stamps or postal cancellations on the reverse, but in the case of this wonderful recent find on a market stall here in Rome, because the execution of the print is simply exquisite.
