May You Always be Found



I love Ireland--it is the land of my ancestors on Dad's side.  I also love St. Patrick's Day with all it's fun and tomfoolery.  This postcard is especially cunning--the artwork is beautiful and exemplifies the spirit of the Irish.

The Irish are full of life.  Their history is filled with heroes and hardships.  I am proud to be of the Irish and to wear the green.

Happy Valentine's Day!


I hope your day is a beautiful one.  I miss my Beloved with all my heart this holiday.  But instead of weeping and moping,  I've decided to celebrate family, friendship and chocolate this Valentine's  Day!

A token of True Love



Wouldn't it be fun to see a REAL Cherub?  This dear little fellow in his blousey pantaloons of blue is adorable.

I hope you are having a GREAT weekend!

Blessings, hope, joy and love to you, dear ones.

To My Love -Postcard Friendship Friday #443


This sweet card is from the mid-1940's.  I found it in one of Dad's scrap books from those days.  He has been gone for six years--there are so many things I wish I had known about Dad--didn't until after he passed away.  What a delight to find this in his keepsakes--Daddy was a sentimental fellow.  This Valentine's Day Card folds down into this delightful Valentine.


I know this isn't a postcard, but I had to share it with you dear ones.  I know you will love it as much as I do!  May blessing, joy and hope be yours, sweet Friends. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Valentine Remembrance -Postcard Friendship Friday #442



I love Valentine's Day and I adore the artwork on the cards celebrating that holiday--especially the older ones.  My fascination with vintage cards, postcards and photos began at a very young age, when sweet Grammie gave me a box of her old cards complete with things like feathers and glitter.

I still have them and treasure each memory.  I hope you enjoy this beautiful postcard.  I found it at Card Cow, one of the best sources for vintage postcards I've ever encountered.

Love and peace to all and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

A Message to my Valentine -Postcard Friendship Friday #441



I have always loved Valentine's  Day.  And I wish I could send a Valentine message to my Beloved, who is in heaven.  He always brought flowers and candy not just for me, but for my girls.

What a sweet fellow he was!  I miss him a lot this time of year.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Your Heart is Mine -- my Valentine!


I have always loved Cowboys.  Perhaps it is because my Grandfather was once a cowboy in real life.  He lived in Idaho, and eventually went from cows to sheep. 

He passed away before I was born, but it was his joy to know I was on the way.  I wish I could have met him.  He could play any instrument and was once a member of a traveling country Western band.

I'm sure he's in heaven with my Daddy and they are looking down upon me and mine.  Have a wonderful holiday weekend!  What's left of it, that is.

I Have a Dream -Postcard Friendship Friday #440




I was ten years old when Martin Luther King was assassinated.  Even at that tender young age, this great man captivated my imagination.

I loved him.  His dream became mine, too. I have always been captivated by his inspiring words.  Especially these:  "I have a dream... ...that little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers."

Growing up, my parents taught us a great truth--that people are people no matter what color their skin is...that God made human beings like flowers, in all shapes, colors and sizes--and they are all beautiful.

Blessings and peace to all peoples and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

Stand and Deliver Your Heart!



Now this is a masked bandit I would LOVE to meet!  Isn't this cherub the picture of cuteness and determination?

Happy Valentine's Day!  Have a GREAT week!

To my Sweetheart


I adore Valentine's Day postcards.  The artists of old had a beautiful way of illustrating the whimsical feeling of that tradition.

Though Valentine's Day makes me sad sometimes--my Beloved is no longer here--I still love the work of those fabulous vintage artists!

Have a GREAT day, sweet Friends!

To the One I love -Postcard Friendship Friday #439



It is getting close to Valentine's Day already.  It is a little more than a month away.  I used to love that holiday, but it has been a sad one for me since my Beloved flew away to heaven.

This year I am going to do something a little nutty.  I'm keeping the Christmas tree up with its lights--putting away the Christmas ornaments.  I am going to decorate the tree with valentines and hearts, then I'm inviting all my nieces and nephews to come over for the weekend.

We will eat Valentine's Day cake, enjoy some fun games, sing and play instruments and best of all, laugh together.  I think this is the perfect solution for Valentine's Day.  It will become a new tradition.  :D

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Happy New Year! -Postcard Friendship Friday #438




Happy New Year!  As I get older the years seem to go by more and more quickly. I can still remember when I was a child, summer lasted at least two years.

This postcard tickles my funny bone a bit.  That holly leaf dress must be incredibly prickly!  

Today I am thanking the Lord for His kindness and compassion over the past year, which has been one of great struggle.  I believe I am on my way back to strength and peace.  For that I am grateful.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the new year holds!

Happy New Year and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
