To My Best Love -Postcard Friendship Friday #487



It is hard to describe the emotions touching my heart this afternoon. The New Year is here and memories of moments gone by mingle with the flow of what is yet to come.  I am filled with a certain melancholy, yet somehow joyful sense of the great adventure ahead. How I long to see what's around the next corner.

Already Valentine's Day is only a little over a month away!  So here is this year's first Valentine's Day postcard!  I love vintage vintage Valentine Cards--they are sometimes fun, but can be exquisite and elegant.

Have a beautiful weekend! What's left of it, that is--and don't forget to watch for those sparkles which God tucks into each day.

New Year's Greetings!


It is hard to believe the New Year is only hours away.  I look back over the past year and am amazed at all that happened.  It passed by so quickly--but so slowly all at once. 

May God bless you with peace, joy, laughter and give you wisdom beyond your own when you need it most.  God is so good.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year! -Postcard Friendship Friday #486



Aren't these little fellows cute?!  It is hard to believe it will be 2020 in just a few days.  Last year seemed to go by so quickly.  I'm like an explorer in time--good times, or bad times--I can hardly wait to see what is around the corner. 

Happy New Year!

A Joyous Christmastide -Postcard Friendship Friday #485



I just love this postcard.  Though as a Mom I'm saying to myself, "Where is that child's coat?!"  With all the snow and what looks like ice, it seems pretty cold.  lol  But what fun they're having--Christmas is near and they've loaded their sleigh with holly.  I imagine it will be used to decorate their home.

I have a special place in my heart for the Netherlands.  I love their traditions and stories and some of my ancestors came from there.

Have a joyous weekend, dear ones!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, and Merry Christmas!

Get Married on Friday, the 13th -Postcard Friendship Friday #484



I have to admit, when I saw this one I burst out laughing.  I couldn't help seeing the humor of it.  I was married to a wonderful man for over 30 years, so it doesn't apply to my own experience--but it did hit my funny bone.

Have a great weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Christmas Pine Cone Boy -Postcard Friendship Friday #483




Isn't this little fellow with the pine cone fringe cute?  I adore this unusual Christmas card.  As you can see there are windmills in the background--I wonder if this one is from Holland, inspired by a tradition I haven't heard yet?

If there's a story behind this beautiful boy decked with pine cones, I'd love to hear it!

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a fabulous weekend!  Merry Christmas and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Joyful Christmas?! -Postcard Friendship Friday #482



This postcard is a bit odd--that Santa mask looks downright dastardly!  What a contrast--the young lady is quite lovely and sweet looking.

That child seems quite large next to that turkey bird!  I can see why the poor birdie is running away as fast is he can.

Best Wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving -Postcard Friendship Friday #480



Thanksgiving will be held at my sister's home this year!  No cleaning for me, but plenty of cooking.  I'll be doing the turkey, gravy, carrots, pumpkin pie, berry pie and apple pie.  And Mumsie is staying with me for a WEEK!

Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

A Thanksgiving Moon -Postcard Friendship Friday #479



I would hug the turkey too--for protection from that creepy moon face!  I love this postcard.  It is just so odd!  The girl's costume seems to be Dutch--which is surprising, but lovely.

It is hard to believe Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away.  These days I practice an attitude of gratitude as I go through my day.  I have so MUCH for which to be thankful--and not just during the holidays.

There are lots of sad moments, regrets, tears, yet at the same time there is also joy, laughter and love.  What a blessing it is to be alive!
