This Saturday I would live to share some Christmas cards that were given to us after my in laws passed away.. There are around eighty cards of different occasions
This is the card sent to my father-in-law by his Grandma on his second Christmas
Below are more Christmas cards his Grandma and Mother received.
Most of these caads are from the early 1900's.

Notice this card was postmarked 1910 and it has the old penny stamp on it. Today a post card is 29 cents to mail and goes up after the first of the year.
I have included two Thanksgiving card and a birthday card below.. I often wished i had been able to have some of my grandmother's post cards. She had boxes of them . .I really don't know who got them or where they went. At least I can enjoy the ones I have.

Wouldn't it be fun to get a post card in your mailbox like those of old? I know I would. In fact I have a few old ones that have been reproduced to send a few lucky gals.
So much to do yet for some of us I need to bake, decorate and get those cards addressed. Enjoy your weekend. . I have already received five in the mail
