As I was going through a box of "stuff" from who-knows-when, I came upon an original box of cards (no envelopes). The box is labeled "Guys and Gals - All Occasion Assortment" and was originally a box of ten cards. Only one was missing! These cards are huge, approximately 8 x 10 inches! I will try to post one a day so you too can enjoy the amazing beauty and artistry of these wonderful cards.

Sweet sentiment from Mildred to Ivor. There was no envelope for this one, so I am uncertain of the date. But I am not uncertain of the love they had.

Ivor and Mildred were married in the late 1930's or early 1940's. During WWII, then through later years when Ivor's job as an engineer took him to various locations, he and Mildred wrote letters and sent cards to each other, and to their many friends and relatives. They saved these letters for many years, and through devious means (i.e. dumpster diving!) they made their way to me. Thank you Leigh ... for giving me permission ... after I told you ... much later!
I can only piece together Ivor and Mildred's story from what I read in these cards and letters, but I know they had a great love and an even greater commitment to that love.
