Mildred's Birthday 1945
Ivor was a man of few words. He let this beautiful card tell the story of his love and birthday wishes for his wife while they were separated by a continent. The discoloration of the card comes from a silky material inset for the lampshade.
I save cards and letters ... I have boxes full of them. Most of the older cards I have were rescued from a dumpster several years ago, and have been in storage ever since. Others I find at the Goodwill Surplus store nearby (where I buy them by the pound, so they are nearly free).
It is time to liberate these treasures and share them with the world! I am especially interested in cards that have a personal touch, so I will include any and all writings that make these cards so fun. Many are still in their original envelopes, and I will include these as well, since they also tell their own stories.
Thank you Marge, for this award. You warm my heart and soul.
If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be near the ocean. Unfortunately dreams don't always translate into reality. At least I now live near the woods of my childhood, where I can take long peaceful walks and remember the fun we had growing up.
