Sharing just a few images as a salute to all things Irish.

The postcard with the young man was mailed to Marguerite and the postcard showing the lady carrying a bouquet was sent to her younger sister Mable, residing in Deward, Michigan.  The note written to Mable references being a flower girl.   The message to Marguerite discusses leaving Deward "for good".  Reading "between the lines", the comments cause one to wonder whether Marguerite is the bride in the upcoming wedding who is preparing to relocate when she sets up her own household.


Wear your green today and celebrate!




Until next time, live and love well.

Hi Debra!

I always love seeing your vintage cards. I bet that they have some pretty interesting notes on the back and the handwriting must be so different looking from modern day script.

Happy St. Pat's Day

The Vintage St. Patrick's Day cards are perfect. My sister first introduced me to vintage holiday cards years ago, and ever since then, I was so fond of them.
