Wartime Christmas Card
This beautiful card was tucked inside others sent to Ivor and Mildred.
I don't have the envelope for this card, so I don't know the date it was sent. The hand written note tucked inside hints that it was sent sometime during WWII ... although the same feelings about our "boys overseas" could be expressed in many of the years since then.
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.
