A giveaway for pigeon fanciers

These four postcards were bought a couple of weeks ago in the south west of France where they obviously keep their pigeons in the height of luxury.  I'd be happy to live in some of these beautiful old pigeon lofts/dovecotes myself.  You'd probably have an excellent view of the surrounding area.  In fact I believe quite a number have been converted into homes, mainly for the holiday market.

It's quite fun spotting the different styles when going through the countryside and I confess, given half a chance, I could become quite addicted.  All I'd need would be a list of the different styles and I'd be there, ticking each one as I saw it.

If anyone would like to have one of these cards, leave a comment and send me your postal address to daily dot postcard @ gmail dot com.  I have only these four cards, so if there are more than four of you, I'll select four names randomly.

This is a post for Postcard Friday, which is hosted by Beth Niquette at The Best Hearts are Crunchy.


  1. I wrote you an email! :)
    Also, if I'm able to choose, I'll choose 2nd card, please :)

  2. Wow! These are wonderful! What I wouldn't give to have one of THESE in my back yard! Marvelous postcards.

    Have a lovely weekend and a happy PFF!

  3. They are so cute. I'd have to have one on the ground level, Sheila...since stairs are getting harder for me. Wouldn't they make fun guest room, though!

    I'd like the first one that shows all of them!

  4. I am one w/ you in living inside in some of these. It would be one big adventure for sure!

  5. What fun! Nice of you. I actually like pigeons! Happy PFF!

  6. Interesting! :)

    About my lynx from Bulgaria: the stamp says Lynx lynx, which is The Eurasian Lynx/Red lynx.

  7. Andy Capp was a pigeon fancier. So is Mike Tyson. I'm already ticked, thank you.

    So... is the pigeonnier the building or the fancier? I'll guess the building. A "pigeon loft" says the translator. We'll, I'll be. So you would like to live in one, eh?


  8. Oh, these cards are just too pretty! I'd like to have one. I hope i'd be lucky!

    I'd also be happy to live in any one of these beautiful old pigeon houses. :)

  9. I would love to see these pigeon houses someday. They're beautiful. I hope I get lucky. That's a nice postcard you got. My PFF Entry is up. Come visit me some time. Thanks!

  10. The first one is what I like to have cos it has all four pictures in it. But im thinking the list is probably full now. Lovely postcard

  11. Fantastic cards! In Taiwan, raising pigeons is such a huge thing some people quit their office work to concentrate on this. And it requires lots of $$$. My husband loves all sorts of birds and back in England he used to leave a bag of peanuts hanging on a clothesline for birds to eat. My brother, on the other hand, raised pigeons when he was in his teens. Lovely birds, I just don't like the mess they leave behind.hahaha.
    Enjoy your weekend, Sheila!

  12. Fascinating! Although I'd rather not spend a night in one of these. Err, the thought of pigeon poo makes me want to admire it from a few feet away.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
