Black Cats - Postcard Friendship Friday
First of all, dear friends, I apologize for getting PFF up so late in the day--I have been quite ill this week, and fell behind.
I adore this postcard! The little girl's dress is just adorable. I think I want one! I have loved black cats since I was a little girl and am now a collector of them. When my father was a boy, he had a black cat named Snow. When I was small we also had a black cat named Snow--and today my children are loved by a black cat named Snow--though her name has reverted to Snowbunny.
Most of what we hear about black cats is bad. But in fact, folklore surrounding black cats varies from culture to culture. In Great Britain, black cats are a symbol of good luck. The Scottish believe a strange black cat's arrival to the home signifies prosperity. Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors. I rather thought today's postcard fit that bit of folklore!
