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!

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!
