HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND A FREE GIFT

XOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXO
ALWAYS  IN  OUR  HEART




WELCOME  TO  PINK  SATURDAY!

I  WANT  TO  TAKE  THE  TIME  TO  THANK

OUR  LOVELY  HOSTESS,  BEVERLY!

TO  VISIT  HER  AND  THE  LIST  OF  OTHER

LOVERS  OF  PINK,  PLEASE  GO  TO:




I  WAS  JUST  SETTING  IN  THE  OFFICE

TODAY  REFLECTING  PINK  SATURDAY.

I  WAS  JUST  THINKING  OUT  LOUD  AND

SAID, "I  SURE  WISH  I  HAD  YOUR  CREATIVE

TALENT  AMY!"   IT  WASN'T  TWO  MINUTES

AND  THE  THOUGHT  CAME  TO  ME  TO  SCAN

SOME  OF  MY  ANTIQUE  POSTCARDS!"

THANK  YOU  FOR  THE  IDEA  AMY  AND  THANK  

YOU  MY  DH  RICHARD  FOR  SCANNING  THEM

FOR  ME!

I  CAME  UP  WITH  THE  IDEA  TO  MAKE  THESE

THREE  POSTCARDS  FREE  TO  YOU  AS  FOLLOWING

MY  BLOG  AND  TO  HOLLY,  KAREN,  BANNER  OF


ROSE,  REBECCA,  AND  SO  VERY  MANY  OF  YOU  WHO

SHARE  FREE  GRAPHICS,  PICTURES,  AND

BEAUTIFUL  POSTCARDS. 

MANY  THANKS  TO  ALL  OF  YOU  AND  ESPECIALLY

THOSE  OF  YOU,  WHOSE  NAME  I  HAVE  SOME-

HOW  DELETED  FROM  MY  MEMORY.

 





THIS  CARD  IS  GORGEOUS.  IT  IS  DATED  1910  AND  WAS

SENT  TO  A  LADY  WHO  WAS  IN  THE  HOSPITAL.

NOW  NOT  KNOWING  MUCH  ABOUT  SCANNING  AND  ALL,

I  DON'T  KNOW  WHY  IT  SHOWED  UP  SMALL.

I  HOPE  WHEN  YOU  RIGHT  CLICK  IT,  AND  SAVE  AS

IT  WILL  ENLARGE  FOR  YOU  OR  IF  SOMEONE  KNOWS,  PLEASE

TELL  ME  WHY,  IT  POSTED  SMALL.



THIS  IS  A  BIRTHDAY  CARD  BUT  IT  HAD  TOO  MUCH

BEAUTIFUL  PINK  IN  IT,  TO  NOT  SHARE  IT.

SAME  AS  THE  OTHER  ONE,  RIGHT  CLICK

AND  SAVE  AS.

OH...THIS  CARD  WAS  ALSO  DATED  1910.



THIS  CARD  WAS  DATED  1920. 

OF  THE  200  POSTCARDS  I  HAVE,  THIS  IS  THE  ONLY

ONE  THAT  HAD  A  VERY  SHINEY  FRONT



THANK  YOU  FOR  JOINING  ME  AND  GRACIE  ANN  FOR

PINK  SATURDAY.

YOU  ARE  SOOOOOO  VERY  SPECIAL.

HUGS  AND  BLESSINGS

SIMPLY  DEBBIE

Morning Debbie,
Love your vintage postcards, they are very pretty. So I downloaded them or uploaded them!!
I get it confused as to which is which! lol
Hope you have had a good week hon. Thanks for coming by this week, and so glad you liked my new reinvented candleholder. It has been fun burning them while we have dinner on the porch.
Hope you have a bright and beautiful week, sweet friend,
Blessings Galore,

Your vintage postcards are charming. 200, wow! That's a real collection! Enjoying reading through your previous blogs, as well. Have a lovely Sunday.

Holly, the Old Western Gal said...

Oh, they are beautiful, Debbie! Thank you for posting them and making them available to all the world to cherish!!!

They post small but if regular-clicked, will enlarge in a separate window unless someone has changed their browser controls to prevent that. Then they can be right-clicked to save. Either size can be saved. Those little versions would look pretty on a sidebar and the big versions could be used in digital scrapping or printed as postcards to send or frame!

Oh Dear Debbie, I am so glad you stopped by. I tried to change my blog one day and lost all of my blogs on my favorites list. Fooled around and some popped back on. Now they just disappear for no reason, that I know, and I don't realize it. Now I can go in and put yours back on the list. I hope you are doing good and your heart is healing.
Yes we have a big day coming up, doesn't seem possible. Blessings

Oklahoma Granny said...

Debbie, After reading the comment you left on my blog I just had to come back and tell you that we used to take our kids to the local dirt track every Sat night. Our daughter married a stock car driver and now their 2 boys (ages 17 & 15) are racing too. Our grandsons started out in karts, then went to full body stock cars. Now they're primarily racing in the turf (aka mini sprint class.) The youngest one has had the most feature wins for the last 2 seasons - not just in his class but out of all the classes for our 3 local tracks. He also received the "2009 Driver of the Year" last year for the local tracks. That award also took into consideration all of the drivers from the various classes. We are pretty proud of both boys' accomplishments. Racing is a great family sport. Glad you've experienced some of it.

Hi Debbie, Thank you so much for sharing those gorgeous scans. The old postcards are just so beautiful and I always look for them on my hunts. So sorry I am late but I wish you a very happy Pink Saturday.xoxo Lynn

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

They are beautiful Debbie. To think, they have lasted this long and still in good condition. What makes it even more beautiful is the fact that every card has it's very own story. That once, someone did receive them and have brightened one's day :-)

I checked again on my last PS comment, but I did see that you placed the other blog so I didn't know about this new blog you started.

Mizpah,

(about crocheting, you know, you can use a bigger sized hook that one your yarn normally would recommend for. That way, maybe you can avoid crocheting a tighter stitch. :-) )

Okay - finally - I'm "here" on the pink post. Thanks so much for commenting on my pink post saturday. I went outside today and started to pick up my pink-petal-snow, it was too yucky. So, I dead-headed the roses and clipped some of the almos-ready-to-fall blossoms. Have myself a pile of pink, a few red and then I stopped by my blue bonnets and took a few of them. I love your idea of drying and threading them. Might be painstaking but I think that's what I'll do. Thanks! BTW I enjoyed reading your profile. All except the part about your daughter, that brings sadness. Thanks for your testimony. Thanks for reminding us of things we need to remember...and I think I'll follow and grab your forget-me-not card. Thank you so much. Jenn
