Daisies In Her Arms -Postcard Friendship Friday #280


I apologize for posting late.  So much is happening in my life right now.  I am just totally distracted.  I'll have this coming Friday's post all ready to go so it will happen whether or not I'm here or there!  Thank you for your patience.

I am re-posting another charming postcard of the enchanting little girl who has so caught my imagination--This postcard is number two in a series of six which were produced in the early 1900's by Tuck & Sons. The series was called "Sweetie."

Here the small girl glances longingly toward the artistic bundle of grasses and daisies in her arms. I am sure she was wishing she could run outside and play--perhaps in sunlit fields filled with those happy-go-lucky daisies.

These postcards are a part of my "cyber" postcard collection and were sent by Pearl, who's amazing postcard collection is ever an inspiration to me.

Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

I love Tuck cards too, and this one is especially nice. The stamp and cancellation are also superb.

The little girl has such a beautiful face. I like that you showed the postmark and the personal note. Those are my favorite parts of the postcard.

She is so simply perfect! But yes, I'm sure you're right that she would be dreaming of playing outside. :)
