Easter Postcards

Posting about postcards today.  Easter to be exact.  I don't have many-- enough.  I place some around every year for decoration.  Here are a few:

Very fun, postmarked 1914

Postmarked 1916

Unused and so pretty

This fold-out card was made in Germany.  It is used but not mailed so no postmark. The rooster slides up in between the front and back of the card.  It's also embossed.

I tip my Easter bonnet to the card makers of yesteryear (or yester-century).  Such sweet, enduring designs.

Linking to Mockingbird Hill Cottage and "A Favorite Thing."

Enjoy!

  3. Oh, these are so lovely, and I love that they are vintage... I don't send out Easter cards either, it is a lost "art" as they say! Cheers~
