I have a large collection of vintage postcards and I thought I would share some of my Easter ones on my blog. As far as I know none of my cards are valuable in a monetary sense, many of them are marked, creased or faded with age. I feel their imperfections add to their shabby charm and love them all. The cards I am sharing today are mostly from the early 1900s. I enjoy reading the messages on the back and wonder about the lives of the people who wrote them. Interestingly a lot of old postcards are written on in grey lead pencil. I have been told that this is because ink was expensive and many could not afford to use it.
wishing you sunshine in your shadows
Sunshine in my shadows
Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!
