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.

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

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!

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.
