Pink Flowers for Easter -Postcard Friendship Friday #262


So sorry I was late putting PFF up today.  I had to drive over to my darling Mumsie's house to help her with putting together stuff for her tax lady. 

No, this postcard isn't exactly for Easter--in fact, as I looked at it--it is the letter "A" for amazing, or astonishing.  All of those words are appropriate when I read the Easter story as told in the Bible.

This postcard was so pretty I decided to put it up even if it isn't truly Easter-related. 

Thank you for dropping by, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Bunnies and a Purple Egg

There is something about this darling cut out card, that intrigues me.  I love the flowers and that purple egg.  The bunnies are dear and sweet.  This Easter card makes me smile.  I really would love to see an egg that big--perhaps it is a dinosaur egg?  One could dream of such a thing.

Have a great rest of the week!

Easter Greetings!




I love this little card.  Such a gentle little angel, playing her music amidst the Easter Lilies.  The blue of the forget me not flowers filtering down to the clouds, gives the idea of blue skies and hope.  Easter is all about hope.  

Blessings to you all, dear Friends.

Irish Storyteller -Postcard Friendship Friday #261


My Father loved the Irish and was proud of his own Irish heritage.  He was a natural born storyteller, as is my precious Mumsie.  I remember warm feelings from the days when my siblings and I were small and we would gather around to listen to Daddy spin a tail.  Those are endearing, precious memories which spread comfort through the soul.

Coming from a family of storytellers, I married one.  To his last day, my Beloved lived and breathed drama and storytelling.  I adored his stories.  I didn't realize how much I've missed them until a few weeks ago, when after a rehearsal, a group of us sat around for a little over three hours, laughing and telling stories.  I haven't laughed that hard for a very long time.

We must never forget the importance of stories.  Tell a story today--you never know how precious that story time will be to someone later on.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Erin Go Bragh! -Postcard Friendship Friday #260

I posted this wonderful reproduction of an old postcard several years ago.  It is is one of my favorite postcards. I love the delicate curls and the pretty harp hanging from her waist.  

What I still don't understand, is why the pig is in the postcard.  There are lots of St. Patrick's Day artwork with pigs.  Is this an Irish custom I haven't heard about yet?  I would love to know what the story is!

Have a lovely weekend, dear Friends--and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

A Wee Leprechaun -Postcard Friendship Friday #259


What a funny little fellow--He's exactly as I think a wee Leprechaun might look. One hears stories about the frolicksome ways of the Irish. I love the Irish and am proud to claim my ancestry. Aye, someday I shall visit Ireland and see it all for meself.

This postcard is one I bought for my collection in the late 1970's. It was printed in the USA, and was a reproduction of a postcard printed in the early 1900's.

Dressing Up -Postcard Friendship Friday #258


This wonderful old postcard reminds me so much of my sister Clytie and I when we were young. We did indeed dress the puppies in doll clothes, though I don't know if we ever actually were successful in any attempt to dress up a kitty cat!!

The little ones in our lives bring so much charm and joy.  I am so grateful for the joy of the children.

Of my Love -Postcard Friendship Friday #257


I apologize once more for my lateness in putting this up.  This weekend has been a hard one for me--My first Valentine's Day, without my beloved.  I'm sure he knows how much I love him--and I know I will see him again one day.

In the meantime, I thank God for the wonderful years we had together.

Have a lovely Valentine's Day weekend, dear Friends--and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

From Heaven Above -Postcard Friendship Friday #256


I am posting this postcard in honor of my tiny niece who brings such sparkle and laughter into the world.  The little girl on this postcard looks so much like her. She is my itty bitty buddy and the apple of my eye.

Thank you for YOUR friendship, dear ones. True friendship is a gift from heaven. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

Sisters -Postcard Friendship Friday #255


I first became acquainted with SissyDea from her blog, A Painted Garden.  We found one another in 2009.  Today you can find her wonderful digital artwork at Whimsey Asylum.  How quickly the years have flown, and how our lives have changed.  This beautiful postcard was from Deann's own dear Daddy. 

What treasures are those lovely women we call sisters. Today I want to honor my sisters, both those who share my blood--and precious others who are sisters of my heart.  Sisters who, as they walk through the hardships life brings, perhaps unknowingly have been such inspirations to me.

I love you, my darling sisters! May God bless each of you with great joy, light and love today.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
