Postcards...does anyone send them any more? I think the last one I sent, or received, must have been in the '70s. It was so much fun receiving a postcard from a friend who was on vacation.
I have a collection of old postcards, brochures and ticket stubs that I get out around this time of year...sort of a trip down memory lane...
...I like to set them out on a tray in the family room, and maybe add a couple of shells or stones from the beach.
A lot of the cards are really old, and were sent to my grandmother by friends and family, who loved to travel.
One of my favorites is this one showing ladies in their "bathing costumes"...actually, the lady on the right is my great aunt, Mattie. Can you imagine swimming in those outfits? Not only are they wearing hats, but stockings. I'll bet that was a whole lotta fun.
Here's a brochure from the time Hubby and I went to Hawaii...way back in the late '60s.
The perfect outfits to wear in Hawaii...a plaid sport coat for him, and a linen dress and gloves for her...can you say..."HOT"?
Moving down to Florida...the card with the swimming pool reminds me of the movie, Where the Boys Are. Do y'all remember that one? Gosh, I'm telling my age...LOL
Here I am in my swim suit, having the time of my life in Florida...just kidding, it's not me.
I hope y'all have great Summer vacation memories.
I'm taking a short blog break, and sending you greetings from Atlanta, Georgia.
