Four vintage postcards from my collection. The first and third published by Raphael Tuck c1910. The second has no publishing details or date, but it was posted in Vienna on the 12th April, 1911. The last one published by the International Art Company, New York c1915.

I wish you all a joyous Easter.

  4. Lovely cards, Barbara. I love your comments on my posts. Always. Don't be sorry about the length. I adore the bits and pieces of your childhood. Every time I read your narration, I'm picturing them in my head. And it's always such a joy to read what you write ~ the kind of joy that glows inside. Have a most wonderful Easter with your family!

    1. Thank you Maria, I hope your Easter is wonderful. Getting the signature on the blog was fairly straightforward, but I had to enlist the help of my husband to put the images together.

  14. Hello Stephanie, I keep thinking spring is just around the corner – but it’s a very long corner! The sun is shining this morning but it’s still bitterly cold. I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

  25. You really can't go wrong with a bunny and some chicks for Easter. Dare I say it? Hope you had an eggcellent Easter, Barbara. All the best :-)

    (btw My wordpress reader keeps letting me down and isn't giving me your latest posts which is so frustrating. Wish I had caught you sooner)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hello Jill, Eggcellent indeed! I've started my own (sort of) reader in Excel. I note down the blogs I like (with web addresses), together with the date I last visited them, and then it’s a simple matter of clicking on the links.
    I understand some of the readers are being phased out soon and I don’t want to lose contact with my favourite blogs. Thanks for calling in.

  27. I love Easter postcards and used to go nuts over the ones my grandparents sent from Europe. Too bad no one sends them anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Eve, it is a shame. Maybe we should start sending them, you never know it might start a trend. Now that I come to think about it, we (Terry and I) should be sending them to our little granddaughters in Australia, they could have quite a collection of cards from England, by the time they are grown up.
