~Vintage Postcards~

 

   We are having SNOW and more SNOW!   What a winter!

These old post cards have been in our family for many, many years.  Each year they come out of the drawer and are displayed in some part of the house.  They’re always fun to read over and over again, they also make you realize just how much life has changed since they were written. 

They were displayed in an old sewing machine drawer last year,

this year a silver bowl.

I don’t know about you but I love it when someone sends me a card or note in the mail.  Yes…I know there’s email, face book, twitter and of course cell phones but for me, opening the mail box and finding a card or letter from an old friend or relative always makes me smile

There was an article in our local newspaper this week that stated, due to modern technology,  emphases on teaching handwriting skills, in grade school, may no longer be necessary.  Who knows, handwriting may be a thing of the past in the near future.  (I hope not!)

This piece of art was in one my decorating magazines a few years back and I’ve always admired it.  What a great way to preserve one’s family history as well as a beautiful piece of art.

  I am linking up with Vintage thingies Thursday over at Colorado Lady.  If you would like to see more vintage things…..this is the place to be!

Take care everyone and thank you for stopping by!  Have a lovely vintage Thursday, Friday and weekend!  See you soon!

Pin It now!

I love the way you've displayed your postcards!

I miss snail mail so much - so sad to not receive anything in the mail anymore. I'm the last hold out among my friends.

Happy VTT,
Sally

It is amazing to me that the handwriting looks so universal on old postcards no matter where they were penned. I also heard yesterday on the news that children who do learn penmanship rather than keyboarding remember things better than those you do not acquire the skill. It has to do with practicing and repetition of the strokes.

The house at 1434 Cherokee Rd. Louisville, KY is still standing. If you put in the address a picture of the 8 berroom house will come up. I live around Louisville and recognize the street name.
