One of the best things about a trip to Spain was going to a wonderful flea market in the Plaza Mejor in Madrid. Every Sunday the plaza is ringed with sellers of vintage paper items. What could be more fun?
Unfortunately the prices were really high. But I did manage to purchase a few things and this is one of them. A really odd photo postcard of a Little Spanish Fairy. I wonder what the occasion was. I've searched the internet for Spanish customs, Spanish costumes, children's holidays, but found nothing that explained what this costume might be for. I'm sure in those days, Spanish children didn't dress up for Halloween. It's just another one of those mysteries.
The back of the photo has some writing, but it looks as if this photo was torn from an album and the pages stuck to the photo in places.
I'm not much of a translator, but I think it says something like "To my loving friend, bla bla bla, your best friend, Andrianna or Andreirra or something like that.
The more I look at the photo, I think she's really supposed to be a butterfly. What do you think?
