Victorian Fan with a Meadow Scene

Although this scrap is not in the best condition the person who created this had such an eye to details. It is amazing to me...

Post Card ... A Happy Birthday

A basket of pink roses, some greenery, and a blue bow. Mailed on April 4, 1909 at a cost of 1 cent... Before my time but I believe those were truly the good old days... Have a great Saturday. Check back later for another freebie, this is two post day!

One of the roses from the label...Have a great day!
I thought I would share the card I made using the cigar label. You can be creative and add flowers to cover the coins...add a beautiful image to the center of the frame, and a beautiful butterfly...which is also posed on my blog. To grab this butterfly image or a different one just type butterfly into the search this blog box! I hope this inspires you to create something special today!

PostCard 1910

A lovely post card sent May 31, 1910 for a birthday. I am amazed at the condition. To think it was sent through the mail over 103 years ago, and shows little wear. This must have be treasured by the recipient. Now we all have this window of opportunity to take a small peek into two lives. I hope you enjoy.
