My postcard collection . . .



Old postcards became a
collecting passion many years ago.

I
look
for
history
handwriting
cities
states
Halloween
Thanksgiving
Christmas
New Years
plus
cards
 postmarked
before
1910


one of my favorites
a gift


three more favorites
each dated before 1910



I like the word happy
expensive purchase



my all time favorite
1911


find what you enjoy
and then live it

The embossed Santa is really charming.

that's a neat hobby - and unlike so many other collectibles, doesn't take up much room! :)

Be still my heart.....
Another thing we have in common!
These are so pretty! I wish we still communicated like that :(
My Nana was an avid letter writer until about 4 years ago. She wrote friends every day. I have a huge box of all her saved letters starting from when I went off to college, postcards included, from whenever she took a trip!
Lovely post!
