Speaking of Posting...

I don't know what has gotten in to me, but maybe, just maybe it's because I'm aging, along with stuff in my home. I seem to be in a manic state, wanting to preserve and then make "creations" all day long. This has to stop! Oh, well...we'll see where I go from here. The images below are a result of the scans I just made of my ancestor's post cards that were written and sent back in the early 1900's. My grandmother and then my mother has saved these. I just couldn't be satisfied with scans, I was compelled to something WITH these scans. I'm now thinking of making my own note cards and using these as the fronts. So here you are! People still hand write notes, don't they?

  1. I like your idea Gere. Preserving the past is a good thing.I love looking at old photographs. I just sent a hand written thank you to a lovely couple that invited us to dinner in Colorado. I encourage my children to do the same.

  3. Now those are really neat! Do they still say neat? That would make interesting wall paper.
