Pink Saturday


May joy and happiness
be thine,
'Tis a wish of the rose
and of mine.




A postcard dated Sept. 30, 1912.
An enduring affection.
Not many clues are given in the writing
except that Dorothy visited Carrie.
I wonder what they would have talked about?
Were they sisters or childhood friends?
Did they share a laugh or a jar of
canned green beans?
A visit long past left only to our imagination.
Dorothy would be so surprised her
postcard was being shared with so many.

Be sure to visit Beverly and the other
Pink Saturday posts!

I adore old postcards, too, and have acquired quite a stash of seasonal ones (Christmas, Valentine, Easter, Thanksgiving. I even have one beat up Halloween one...they are hard to find and very expensive if in good shape...as you no doubt know! :)

Hope you have a great Pink Sat. It's a glorious day in KC...I hope it is in your part of the state, too!

Oh I love this and I too wonder what the correspondence was and between whom?
I also have a collection of post cards from long ago and wonder the same thing when I see the message and post mark as to where it came from.
Thanks for sharing and stopping by to say hi!

My first stop since following, this caught my eye in my Reader, since I'm a card maker I figured you have made this beautiful card!

This vase of roses is beautiful. You're lucky to have found it! Pink has always been a favorite of mine!

I'm so going to enjoy this blog!

This is such a treasure. I love vintage postcards, too, and they are even better when they have a sweet sentiment.

How wonderful...a mother/daughter blog! That's a true treasure, indeed.

I love things vintage, and I think in part because they remind me of childhood days and my mother. Beautiful postcard and sentiment.

Blessings for the day,
Marianne
