Beautiful Postcards





These are some of the postcards from an antique postcard album I received for my birthday. 
The album was dated 1913.


I would like to, from time to time, share these beautiful images with you.
Feel free to use them in your crafting.


Have a wonderful day!
Twyla

Those definitely are beautiful postcards. I am in a fun crafting group and this summer we sent postcards to each other. I sent all vintage postcards which were loved by all!

Hi Twyla Sweetie...
How beautiful these cards are. I so love it when you and Lindsey share. You have the most beautiful vintage cards in blogland.

I love the little birds on the one. They are just precious. The flowers are so realistic on the other two. They just don't make cards like these anymore.

Thank you for sharing. Have a beautiful weekend sweetie.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Hey Ladies,

Great cards, very pretty. I also wanted to apologize, but I've had to temporarily stop working on PP as we've been having quite a bit of rain and humidity out here in the desert. As much as I love the rain (especially the smell) it literally hurts me, so I've hesitated for a day or two. Not to worry though, PP will be on the way to you by the middle of August, and I hope this hasn't caused you any ill thoughts of me. It's hard enough admitting my weakness, but this is the first time I've had to stop work for it, so I truly apologize.

Lot's of love,
Meri

I've always loved the vintage post cards. I have a book with fifty or more that belonged to my in-laws. They date back to the early 1900's
Thanks for sharing.

I love your vintage postcards!! Don't you wish they still made things like they used to?

Hi Twyla! The postcards are just beautiful, and make me really regret not buying albums that I saw a while ago. I think there were two of them for $30, and when you think of how much just one postcard can cost, it would have been so worth it. Ah well, hopefully another one will come along!
Happy Pink Saturday!

What a special birthday gift! The postcards are lovely. Thank you for stopping by my blog for a peek at my completed paint-by-number picture. It was such fun! I'm ready to start a new project now. It's hard to narrow it down to just one though.

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine
