Alison @The Polohouse is having a linky party on January 1st,
and since the topic is "Collections", I was looking around the house for something to use for a party post.
Unfortunately, I tend to accumulate odds and ends, rather than collecting beautiful or interesting objects.
But, I do have a collection of antique and vintage postcards that I "inherited" from my mother and grandmother, and one or two cards I found at an antique mall.
Let me show you a few Christmas and New Year's cards.
This one has a 1930 post mark and is addressed to my mother.
I bought this card at an antique mall. The sheep, and castle in the distance, makes me think of Ireland...
...it was sent to the wrong town. I wonder if Mrs. McDougall ever got it?
New Year's cards are a good idea. I never seem to get all my Christmas cards sent on time.
Love the little roof tops on the houses.
This one was sent in an envelope to my parents the year they were married...1939.
Such a formal message from a dear friend. :)
I hope you enjoyed these vintage post cards. There are lots of them in the shoe box, so you may see more of them before the party.
See you at Alison's on January 1st
and Patti and Paula @ Ivy and Elephants for What's Up Wednesday.
Hope you had a great Christmas.
