Here's another from my personal collection. Isn't it sweet? I love that it is just a simple birthday wish, to Earnest Baumann of Fairview, Mass. It was posted in 1915, by Elsie and the rest. The picture I took of it doesn't do justice to how pretty the carnations are on the card, or that the corner flowers are actually embossed too, the postcard actually has a lot of texture.
Anyhow, enjoy and happy FPP!!

So sorry, I'm not blogging much this week, I have caught the Winter Olympic Fever and am suffering with a bad case of "not enough time to watch all the events I want to" syndrome. Apparently I have kids to make lunches for, kids to take to school and pick up, laundry, cleaning... all to be fitted in between Curling competitions, Hockey games, Ski Jumping and Giant Slalom. Good thing Snowboard Half Pipe is done and the rest of the Nordic Combined is not until next week because I'm failing badly as Keeper of the Home. Now would be a good time to be cloned!!
If I get anything made, besides the bed, you'll all be the first to know.
In the mean time, stay healthy, happy and have fun watching the Olympics too!

For a Mrs. Stella Bardwell, 1910, from her Aunt Anna, a very sweet and kind letter. What I do love most is the time people took back then to write each other, because not everyone had a phone, there was no internet and this really was text messaging....I wish we were as civilized!!
Have a lovely PFF day! BTW, you have to excuse the Thursday post for a PFF, I will be away from the computer tomorrow, so I have to do it earlier. Thanks for looking!!!

Lines: The cold earth slept below
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
The cold earth slept below;
Above the cold sky shone;
And all around,
With a chilling sound,
From caves of ice and fields of snow
The breath of night like death did flow
Beneath the sinking moon.
The wintry hedge was black;
The green grass was not seen;
The birds did rest
On the bare thorn’s breast,
Whose roots, beside the pathway track,
Had bound their folds o’er many a crack
Which the frost had made between.

I just had to share this!! Both were thrift store finds for $2 a piece, but both in exactly the the wrong colours of what I like for my room, gold and burgundy makes me queasy (kidding, I don't mind, just not in my room)!
So I got my trusty can of pink Tremclad, my face mask and my new paint box (an old box cut up to be a backsplash) and got to work.
At first I worried the pink was too light and maybe I should have primed it, but Tremclad came through for me, and after 3 coats, they both look brand new and ready to be hung up in my room.
The poem in the frame is a dedication to my son, who is a blessing and a wonderful little angel!
Lives are for living
I live for your
Dreams are for dreaming
I dream for you
Hearts are for beating
Mine beats for you
Angels are for keeping.
Can I keep you?
Have a wonderful day, full of love and lots of pink!
I've acquired a very small collection of simple postcards, some have been mailed, some have been written on and some were never used, all are lovely in their own way. This is the first of them, it is stamped March 9, 1907 and it is addressed to a Miss Bessie Roue, Marshallton, Del.
This is the first time I join in on postcard Friday, yay! I will try to have a new one for you every Friday.
Cheers and have a great night!

Brag Monday at Graphics Fairy!!! I found these wonderful jars at the thrift store, $1.50 each was good...now I had seen Cathe Holden's wonderful button jar tutorial (from Just Something I made), and I just love the label so here it is. My view is, why mess with a good thing, so I didn't change anything really, except I have so much peach ribbon that matched the labels perfectly, what do you think?
