Kitty Cat Haircut -Postcard Friendship Friday #342


I found this delightful postcard a a few years ago ago at the Eclectic Pink Rose and added it to my cyber collection of vintage cards and postcards.  That fascinating blog no longer exists--but I wanted to give my friend there, credit for this funny postcard.

This picture reminds me so much of my own children and their relationship with various cats in our family. Our first cat, Sir Brat T. Bone, who lived to the ripe old age of 18, lived through much of this kind of activity. He didn't seem to mind.

Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Mad at a Thistle -Postcard Friendship Friday #341


I wonder what the thistle did to make that little Dwarf so upset!  lol  He sure is giving it a tongue lashing!  I would love to listen in as the butterfly fluttering overhead.  What a fun conversation that might be, eh?

There is still snow and ice on the ground, but the sun is shining brightly over all--it is a cold, crisp day.

I have enjoyed the snow so much.  We've had two storms come through--only about four inches each time, but ah, it has been beautiful.  I have had mixed feelings, though--how I would have loved to have shared the beauty of the snow with my Beloved.  Still--life is good and full.

Have a lovely week sweet Friends!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Heureuse Annee! -Postcard Friendship Friday #340



It is very cold for our part of the country.  We are usually in the mid-thirties and forties.  Today it is 17 outside, with a high of 27!  We are NOT used to this kind of weather here in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

My Grandfather told of a time it was so cold he drove a team of horses and a buggy across the Willamette River.  That was around 1900 and he was a teenager.  Ah, boys!  Some things never change.  I do love the snow, but this very cold weather isn't a favorite of mine.

However, there's a big storm coming in tomorrow and Sunday.  They say we are in for a silver thaw.  Grandpa used to call ice storms by that name.  I always loved how it sounded.  I am looking forward to the bad weather--and I pray no one gets hurt trying to get around in the ice.

I hope you are having a wonderful New Year so far, dear Friends.  God bless you and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

As Days Unfold -Postcard Friendship Friday #339


Here is a postcard sent to me in the 1990's.  It came adorned with this sweet note from our beloved Grandma Jenny.  I miss her so much.  Milly was Grandpa's half sister and he loved her dearly.  Her things were treasured--so to have something of hers is especially precious.

The poem on the card is printed on a delicate silken patch.  The flowers are embossed.  I think it is a lot older than Grammie thought, even then--from my research this postcard is more than  likely over 100 years old.

A Happy New Year to each and every one of you dear ones and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

A Great Light -Postcard Friendship Friday #338



"...The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death, a Light has dawned."  Matthew 4:16

Those words give me great hope--especially with the unrest in the world around us.  Hope is a good thing--maybe even the best of things.  

Merry Christmas sweet Friends.  May God bless you with light and hope this Christmas Holiday and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Merry Christmas -Postcard Friendship Friday #336



When I was a little girl I often dreamed of angels.  I am sure I met this beautiful angel in my dreams--she seems so familiar.

Kind Hearts Unite -Postcard Friendship Friday #335




I apologize for getting this up so late in the season.  It has been a tremendously difficult time for me and my family.  I didn't realize the second year of grief would be so difficult during the holidays this time around.  It is a long journey I am on--a journey to joy. 

...Weeping may last for the night,
But joy comes in the morning...
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have loosed my sackcloth
And clothed me with gladness, 
That my heart may sing your praise and not be silent. 
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! 
~Psalm 30 

God bless you and I pray your Christmas is a blessed one.

When I remember Christmas with my brothers and sisters--my heart is made glad.  Those long ago days--how I wish I could go back there sometimes.

Merry Christmas and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday

Girl, Grapes and the Turkey! -Postcard Friendship Friday #334



I apologize for not getting this up yesterday--I was having a sweet time of thanksgiving with my Mumsie.  I am so glad she is here on this earth--she is a precious blessing to me.  I thank the Lord for her.

There is so much for which to be thankful--I am glad we celebrate a day of Thanksgiving here in America--steeped in our history, it means a lot to all Americans.

Christmas is just around the corner--it is a time when we celebrate God's gift to mankind!  I am so looking forward to the holiday this year...though I will always miss sharing it with my Beloved, Dad and my sweet little brother Dow.

Have a lovely holiday season, dear Friends.  Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Blue Butterfly -Postcard Friendship Friday #333



This beautifully embossed postcard was given to me by my dear Friend Theresa.  Last Christmas she gave me a bag full of envelopes.  Each was labeled with things like, "If you are having a hard day," "When you are sad," and "Here's a Smile for Today."  I have treasured these envelopes--opening them one by one--only when I needed them most.

Yesterday was the four-year anniversary of my precious Daddy's passing into Heaven.  We call it his Heaven Day.  I was my Dad's eldest and a Daddy's girl.  I miss him dreadfully and I was having a really really bad day.  So I opened one of those envelopes and was blessed with such hope and sweetness--not only by the exquisite beauty of the postcard, but by the note she enclosed with it.

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 
~1 Peter 5:7, The Bible
You are in my prayers.

What a dear blessing, to be reminded of the gift of prayer which surrounds me and to think upon the beauty and kindness of Him Who cares for me.  He is the God who understands my heart--who knows me better than anyone.  My Lord--my Shepherd, my Friend.

Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends.  May you see sparkles of blessings throughout each day, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
