Harps and Shamrocks -Postcard Friendship Friday #351


This wonderful card was in my precious Grammie Jenny's collection. It was printed in the USA on very thin fragile paper. The harp was embossed, then painted a shiny gold. This lovely bouquet of shamrock and green carnation seemed to be the perfect card for today!

An Irish Blessing
May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't love us, may God turn their hearts.
But, if He can't turn their hearts, may He turn their ankles
so we will know them by their limping.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Easter Egg in Spring Bouquet - Postcard Friendship Friday #350


The next holiday to come along is Easter. Easter eggs and the fun to be had with them makes this a marvelous holiday. I also love the stories of Easter--along with old movies shown this time of year, such as The Ten Commandments and The Robe.

This delightful postcard fills my eyes with its beauty and whimsey.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Bon Voyage--Postcard Friendship Friday #349

This wonderful old postcard is HUGE! It is printed on heavy stock and is 10 by six inches. At first I thought it was printed in the 1930's. However, I have since discovered this postcard was published in Bavaria around 1914. The artist's name is Ethel DeWees. Her initials are in the lower right-hand side.
.
I love the simplicity of the little girl's dress and hat. The look on her face speaks volumes, as she hands the boy a handful of yellow daisies.
.
The boy, however isn't quite sure what to do with those flowers, and seems a tad terrified! I enjoyed the boy's elegant clothing, complete with frills and captain's hat, along with that fancy, schmancy carpetbag suitcase.

The Lady and the Sheik -Postcard Friendship Friday #348

Back in the 1930's there were many films made about romance in the far East. This is a photo from one of those wonderful old movies. Their pose, the kiss trembling between them--well, it looks VERY romantic. (grin)

However looks are probably deceiving. Most likely these dancers are feeling quite uncomfortable! Cameras from that long-ago era took forever to take a picture.  The folks posing for a picture had to hold the stance without moving, for quite some time. How they held their smile and that sense of romance I cannot imagine!

Have a lovely day, dear Friends.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Print a Kiss -Postcard Friendship Friday #347



It is good to be back home!  I hope this entry finds you all happy and singing songs.  Since it is still the month of Valentines, I'm posting this lovely postcard featuring vintage Romance.  Some things never change!

I miss my the love of my life and his kisses--Valentine's Day was special to us both, so it is a bittersweet holiday these days.  However, even though my Beloved is in heaven, I still love Valentine's Day.

Have a lovely weekend, dear Friends.  And Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Miss Camille's Fantastic Hat -Postcard Friendship Friday #346

Wow! She's gorgeous! But that amazing hat looks as though it might fly off with the slightest provocation. I wonder if women at that time actually wore hats like that, or if this was just for the photoshoot. She certainly has enough pizzazz to carry it off! Can you imagine what would happen to this dear lady in a windstorm?  Haha.

I am re-posting this postcard from 2010.  When I get back into town, I will be able to do more original stuff.  Thanks for your patience.  Have a wonderful week and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Love's Greetings - Postcard Friendship Friday #345



Hello, everyone.  I posted this lovely postcard in 2011.  Since I'm out of the office for so long, I'm putting this up again.  This little fellow is pretty cute.  I love the blossoming border, as well as the hearts bursting from the box.  Just darling.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday and Happy Valentine's Day.

Cherry Fairy Postcard Friendship Friday #344

Here is another of my favorites by Cicely Mary Barker--she is inspiring--her fairy children are so realistic! This little Cherry Fairy is especially dear--reminding me of all the happy, mischievous small boys I've taught and loved--who've given me cause to laugh with them over the years.

I hope you are all having a great week.  Thank you again for your patience.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

I Love My Fan - Postcard Friendship Friday #343

I posted this wonderful postcard in 2009, and thought it would be great for today.  I love this lady! She is laughing and to hold that pose for the cameras available at the time, she is amazing to me. 

Her face is full of humor and grace. Her pose is unusual and intriguing. I deeply admire her spunk and I LOVE that fan!

Thank you for your patience.  I have been traveling over this past month and was away from my computer.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

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!
