Happy Thanksgiving Week Everyone!
I'm sharing some vintage Thanksgiving Postcards
and a few other goodies, which will lead us into
the Christmas Season!
O Come All Ye Faithful...
Love vintage postcards, and these Thanksgiving themed are the sweetest.
A closer look. "To wish you lots of pleasure and a cheerful feast
for these hours of Thanksgiving." How quaint!
Here we have a "Glad" Thanksgiving Day wish,
a nice change from the "Happy".
"When the apples are gathered, and the brown nuts fall,
may you find it the happiest time of all".
Sweet retro Christmas Carol booklets, and a small group of Christmas hankies.
Couldn't leave out linens. I love hankies, they look like miniature tablecloths to me. :)
Not sure if you can read the postmarks, but they are 1915 & 1917. I know!
Should anyone be familiar with the Troutman family from Kewanna, Indiana,
let me know. How great would it be to pair these postcards with family descendants.
What a sweet postcard she makes.
Speaking of sweet...
This is the elf I created for the elf challenge hosted by Viv at Viv's Whimsy.
He's busy finishing up the things he's been making for Santa's sleigh.
I've got my eye on the pearl necklace! :)
Lucky for me Deb from Garage Sale Gal included this cute elf head when
we were paired as swap partners for Erica from Golden Egg vintage
Christmas in July swap. I grabbed a pinecone from my yard and started creating.
I sat him on this roll of duct tape while I was working and decided it was
an adorable base, so left him on it.
Check my sidebar for the link to Viv's blog, it's not too late to join in!
I rescued these linens from an auction Saturday. I was the only bidder!
I'll be showing you more in a post after Thanksgiving.
Wishing all of you & your extended families a peaceful and loving holiday!
Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
