Saturday Images

Happy Saturday, dear friends!
I would like to share some more of the beautiful postcards
that I received for my birthday.

The one below is dated 1908 and addressed to Miss Carrie Hallderman.
It says, 'Do you remember the Carrollton fair?
I love to think about the lives of the people who sent these postcards.


Someone with an April birthday received this beautiful postcard featuring
roses and birds.



I hope you've enjoyed seeing more of my postcard collection.
As always, feel free to use these wonderful images in your artwork.
Have a beautiful Saturday!
Twyla

Such beautiful treasures, Twyla! I love reading the backs of these vintage beauties almost as much as I love looking at the fronts! So much history, and I find myself doing the same thing...wondering about the people involved and their lives...just for a moment...

Hope you're having a lovely weekend, my friend!

I know what you mean about wondering about the lives of the people that sent and received these cards. Heck I'm just amazed that folks actually took the time and made the effort to send these quick little messages to each other. They are just so sweet and charming. I think I'm gonna start a postcard blitz of my family. They won't know what's up :-)

I love to collect post cards! A recent hobby of mine. My friend that goes junking with me hates this obsession of mine because she says the dust is too much. I always check the dates and daydream about who sent them and what they were talking about. Yesterday I went out with some friends and one of the coasters was a post card. We all signed it and sent it to a friend who's husband is away with the military. No one in the group knew how special that moment was for me. I'm going to have to send post cards :)
