Vintage Postcards

When I first started collecting vintage postcards I concentrated on holidays. I soon amassed quite a collection of Thanksgiving cards. I think the three that are on this blog entry are my favorites. Of course the one above is kind of ironic as I have never made a turkey and most likely never will......

This year I am going to be at work on Thanksgiving day. For the past three years at Thanksgiving Mike and I have gone to my Dad and Mary's home on Bainbridge Island, Washington. I will sorely miss not going this year as it is truely one of the most wonderful places I have ever been. I would move there in a heartbeat, but Mike is a tried and true Chicago man, and how could I ever move that far away from my Mom, brother, and all my dear girlfriends! Sometimes I fantasize about taking two months off from work and just going out there to hang. We do plan on getting out there in the next several months though.
Anyway, don't feel sorry for me because I have to work. I volunteered to work Thanksgiving so I don't have to work on Christmas!
I will try to "showcase" some more of my Thanksgiving cards in the days leading up to Thanksgiving......and then we will move onto the Christams cards. Such a fun and special time of year!

One more thing.....I was wondering if we were going to get a copy of the collages for the FFA? I don't remember what you said at the beginning. I would be more than glad to pay for the prints and shipping. Would love to have an album for myself! Let me know if that is possible....hugs, Linda
