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!

The One I Love -Postcard Friendship Friday #254


I am so sorry to have missed this week's Postcard Friendship Friday.  I was out of town all week long.  Though we had a great time, there were plenty of moments when we shared tears. 

I love this beautiful old Valentine's Day Postcard.  They look like they're actually having fun!  And no smart phones, or tablets.

O little girl when you dance with me,
The party is so fine,
My heart keeps time to the way you step
For I am your Valentine.  

Have a beautiful, blessed week, my Friends.  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Valentine Lilacs -Postcard Friendship Friday #253


I apologize for missing the past two weeks.  This has been an extremely hard time for my family and me.  May God bless and keep you, as He has done with us, as we walk this path of grief together.

Here is another postcard from my "cyber" collection. I've posted this before, but because I love this postcard so much, I am putting it up again.  I adore the drape of the lilacs and the way they frame the delightful countenance of this lovely young woman. I can almost smell the aroma of the lilac trees. Ah--how we all long for spring. I can hardly wait for the lilacs.

Have a lovely week and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

A Glad New Year -Postcard Friendship Friday #252



Years ago, my darling Grammie gave me this wonderful postcard.  Today as I read the beautiful poem on the front, it feels like her special blessing over my life.  Especially in light of my grief over the recent loss of my husband.


Above is the note Grammie wrote.  I treasure this beautiful old postcard and the words she used--especially "love you."  My Grandmother was one of my best friends and I still miss her so much.

When Grandpa was a young man, Millie was one of his good buddies.  I wish I could have known her.  Grammie and Grandpa loved her very much.  She died  young and they treasured her things.  So when Grammie sent this postcard to me--I knew right away what a privilege it was for her to send me this precious bit of their lives.

As days unfold like
Opening Flowers
Throughout the 
Coming year,
May each one bring its
Golden hours,
And some joy fair and dear.

Happy New Year, dear Friends--and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Happy Christmas - Guest Heart Thursday #251



I love this artist's work.  This young girl looks so much like my sweet Friend Emily.  Those eyes, that lovely face, that heart-shaped mouth--they're so familiar!

We had a wonderful Christmas.  I know people have been praying for me and for my family.  I'm so grateful--God heard your prayers for us.  Thank you--you know who you are.  ((HUGS))  I pray your Christmas was a happy one, too.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Santa's Disguise - Postcard Friendship Friday #250


I found this unusual Christmas postcard years ago on my friend Jann's blog.  Though my life has been filled with tears over the past few months, this postcard made me smile.

Who would have thought old Saint Nick was in truth a coy little cherub such as this???  So darling and sweet.

Christmas Greetings!? - Postcard Friendship Friday #249


Good morning, I'm so sorry to be late putting up Postcard Friendship Friday.  It has been pretty hectic this morning--with everything which I must do before the end of the year.  (sigh)  Thank you for your prayers, friends.

This postcard hit my funny bone. The only one who looks normal is the little girl. The pop up guy is kind of scary looking and that doll's eyes seem rather demented. It looks like those kittens are not too sure about the whole business. Especially the kitten peeking around from the side.  Isn't that just a hoot?

May God bless you, and Merry Christmas!

Joyous Noel -Postcard Friendship Friday #248

Here is another Tucks postcard, printed around the turn of the last century. This lovely little girl's unique heart and spirit have sparkled from her face and eyes for nearly 100 years. I find that idea to be fascinating. I can't help wondering about who she was, and what her life was like. There is something so precious and rare about her.

If anyone knows anything about her family and history, I would love to hear from you. 

I apologize for getting Postcard Friendship Friday out so late, it has been a difficult month for my family and me.  God bless you and give you a blessed Christmas holiday.

Kiss the Pumpkin, my dear--For pumpkin Pie is on the Menu -Postcard Friendship Friday #247


What a darling little girl.  Her hat and over sized apron are so cute.  I have a feeling she might just give that brave pumpkin face a hug and a kiss!  Perhaps that pumpkin will become a prince?  I would think kissing a pumpkin would be much more pleasant than kissing a frog!  (Actually, I know this from experience as a little girl) (don't ask) (grin)

This is indeed a Halloween card, but it brought back memories of what we did with all those lovely carved pumpkins.  When I was younger and more ambitious, the pumpkins were cut into pieces and cooked down for hours in a large pan until their consistency was perfect for pumpkin pies.  Those pumpkin pies were the very best, especially with whipped Cream.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Rose -Postcard Friendship Friday #246


God bless you dear ones.  Count your blessings, sweet Friends.  Even when hard times happen--there are still blessings to be found.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments last week.  Thank you for your prayers, my family and I have felt them.  Thank you. 

I have not been able to communicate as normal, but when I am able, I'll be writing back to thank you for your kindness, and clicking in to see your wonderful postcards.

Blessings to you, my Friends.
