My friend Diane is hosting a new blogging event called Trash to Treasure Tuesday! I didn't think I'd have anything to share today, but much like last week I gave some thought as to what I could post and came up with today's idea. Please visit Diane's blog, A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words to see what others have done today.
Years ago I used to date a man who would love to go to antique shops and auctions. I tagged along and found I had a fondness for antique post cards. My favorite (and biggest collection) are the Christmas post cards. Those will wait until next month!
I pulled down some Thanksgiving decorations last night and scanned these Thanksgiving cards to share.
This first one is by my favorite post card artist, Ellen Clapsaddle
This next one has a message on the back that reads: Dear Little Ruth,
I wish many Thanksgiving. We are well. Hope yous are all well also. from Grandma and Grandpa. This was addressed to Ruth Sibley Moriah Essex county NY. Wouldn't it be wonderfully amazing if someone who knew little Ruth saw this?
The next three cards are from Raphael Tuck and sons Thanksgiving Day post card series No. 161
