I just love old holiday post cards.I have been collecting them for several year and the Christmas ones are my most favorite. The graphics are very pretty and seem to represent a sweeter time. I only collect cards that have a message written on them, I love to read their greetings and for the most part the handwriting is so very pretty. The cards also need to have a 1cent stamp and the post office cancellation too. The cards in this picture date from 1909 to 1922. Many of the address are just the persons name, the city and the state. Can you imagine trying to mail something in this day and age with just that little bit of information?I've always loved the winter scenes but I sure think the little card with the dogs and kitty is very cute.
The Andre Reiu concert was just magical. The stage was beautiful, it looked like a winter wonderland and the music and singing just gave you goose bumps...the evening was very special and made even more so being with good friends. Oh, and we all got his Christmas Cd and listened to it on the way home. I've been enjoying it today, and reliving the night.
Sunday was a great day for me , besides attending the concert I also received the Nice Matters Award. I feel very honored to have received this wonderful award from Rachael @ The Rose Room.....thank you so very much.
In the short time I've been blogging I've have truly met the nicest people from all around the world. I want you to know that if you are reading this you are most deserving of this award. I know I can't list everyone but I would like to mention a few blogs by name.
