Flowers in Her Hair - Happy Postcard Friendship Friday #278


I have posted many photographs of this little girl.  She is said to have been a photographer's daughter.  Photos of this young lady along with other family members can be found everywhere.  Her sweet face has become quite well-known.

She is so lovely.  She reminds me of my own dear niece--their faces are nearly identical.  Perhaps this is why I am so drawn to her.  So, here she is again, with pink tinted flowers in hair and deliciously added detail.  This postcard was sent to me by another collector, to whom I am deeply grateful.

I apologize for missing last week's PFF.  I was out of town and was unable to get to a computer.  Lots of stuff happening right now.  It was so very nice to be missed.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday and I hope you have a lovely weekend, dear Friends!

Jackalope -Postcard Friendship Friday #277

 


This is the famous Western Jackalope.  Yes, this postcard has been floating around a LONG time.  Our sweet Grammie sent this to her dear husband Lester, our Grandfather, back in the 1960's. 

I still chuckle when I look at this picture--it reflects my Grandmother's whimsical side.

National Lazy Day -Postcard Friendship Friday #276


 Did you know August 10th was National Lazy Day?  If I would have know this fact, I would have taken a few moments to be lazy!

When I attempted to find the origins of National Lazy Day, the researchers wrote, "Today there will not be much information regarding this annually celebrated holiday as we do not feel like doing any research."  Of course, this made me laugh. I hope the comment brings a grin to your face, too.

Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Athena, or Venus? - Postcard Friendship Friday #275

This is a postcard I fell in love with awhile back. The drapery of her garment is exquisite, as is her face.

She is exactly as I would picture Athena, though after I posted this vintage postcard the first time, a person in the know pointed out Athena usually wears a helmet. Perhaps she decided on an afternoon off without it? Or maybe she's actually Venus?! Well, at least she LOOKS mythical.

Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Happy Birthday Leigh - Postcard Friendship Friday #274

It was our darling sister Leigh's birthday yesterday. What a delightful wonderful woman she has become. She is one in a million!  I am so proud of her and I love her with all my heart.

Have a lovely day everyone.  The sun is shining, and here in our little drought filled valley, we are expecting rain next week.  I hope it will come.  In the meantime, happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Taking a Dip With Mom -Postcard Friendship Friday #273


I remember when my children were young--they had much the same reaction to getting into the water as these youngsters.  I sure do like that vintage suit too--especially now that I'm older!  Too bad they don't make these swimsuits anymore!

We have record breaking heat in our little valley.  I'm so grateful for the river.  It is nice to be close enough to walk to the park and put my feet into the water.  Have a lovely summer, dear Friends.

Wistful - Postcard Friendship Friday #272


Raphael Tuck and Sons were located in England and were an outstanding publisher of early postcards. In November of 1899 Adolph Tuck began his postcard production. Much of the early printing was done in Germany. The company took special pride in being Art Publishers to British Royalty.  

In World War II, the London factory was destroyed by German bombs and the New factory in Northhampton burned in 1954. Most, if not all the records and original photography used to create these postcards were destroyed. We may never know who this lovely young girl was. However, if anyone out there has a clue as to who she might have been, I'd love to hear from you.

Happy Fourth of July -Postcard Friendship Friday #271


 This postcard is from my "cyber" collection. I have a great affection for our country and its flag. I love history and the story of how our nation came to be is a great one. I pray for our country and our leaders each day. The truth is, our leaders need supernatural wisdom and guidance just now.  


Have a beautiful weekend, dear Friends. Thank you for dropping by, Happy Flag Day and Postcard Friendship Friday, too!

Flag Day! -Postcard Friendship Friday #270




After the Declaration of independence was signed, Americans decided to choose a flag to celebrate their freedom.  On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress approved the design for a flag.  From that day forward, June 14, became known as Flag Day.  

At first the idea was to add a star and a stripe for each new state .  But as more states joined, folks soon realized the flag would become way too large and cumbersome.  So, in 1818, the American flag was restricted to its original 13 stripes, with a single star to be added upon the field of blue, for each new state.  

Flag Day has always been a favorite holiday of mine.  It is also my birthday!  When I was a little kid, I thought the flags were put out for me.  As it is, I love history and the story behind Flag Day makes me smile.

Have a beautiful weekend, dear Friends. Thank you for dropping by, Happy Flag Day and Postcard Friendship Friday, too!

Happy Birthday! -Postcard Friendship Friday #269


It is my birthday on the 14th.  I know I'm a bit early, but happy birthday to me and all those wonderful folks with birthdays in June!  lol  

I love the way these two girls are walking together along that giant four leaf clover! Do you suppose they are walking?  Or floating?  

This old postcard reminds me of beautiful memories.  What wonderful friends I have.  What a beautiful family has been given to me.  I have so much for which to be thankful.  

The weather where I live is beautiful.  I can't remember the last time it was 90 degrees on my birthday.  It usually rains in June.  

Have a beautiful weekend, dear Friends. Thank you for dropping by, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, too!
