Joy - A Postcard for PFF

This is the only card from my collection that is even remotely "fireworky".
I wanted something fireworky because next week we celebrate Independence Day in the US - and I don't have a single 4th of July postcard!!!

Don't you just love the style of this card?
Straight from the 1960's/1970's!
(At least that's what it looks like to me!)

To see wonderful postcards from around the world, visit "The Best Hearts Are Crunchy" for "Postcard Friendship Friday"!

P.S. If you live near Independence, Oregon ... it's worth the trip to see the party put on by this little town for the 4th of July. 
Plus that's where you will find Beth and I ... cameras in hand ... friends and family in tow ...
Down by the waterfront ...
Oh I can't wait!!!

Another Bad Dog Postcard

Meet Macy ...

Macy is said to make earrings out of cattle femur bones ...

Not sure what that's all about!

This is one of a series of "Bad Dog" postcards I found a long time ago, and thoroughly enjoy.

OSU/OSC Graduation 1939

Yesterday was graduation day at Oregon State University -
It was televised for those who couldn't attend.

I hear it was a full house; mostly because the key note speaker was Michelle Obama.

I was going through Grammie's papers, and found this graduation announcement.
My Great Uncle Lawrence - who graduated in 1939 ... back when OSU was Oregon State College (OSC).

I wonder who the key note speaker was that year???

Coimbra, Portugal Postcard

I found this postcard in a bin at the Goodwill Outlet store a couple of months ago.
It is slightly stained ... and a child has made a picture on the back.

To some this might make the postcard ugly.
To me, it makes the postcard personal, ADORABLE, and perfect for my collection!!!

Wikipedia has a somewhat different view of "University Hill" - Coimbra - Portugal for comparison with this shot. What a beautiful place!

How Many Candles???

Someone very special is having a birthday next Thursday ...
But I won't tell you how many candles she will have on her cake!

(Although I will say if she were to put them all on this cupcake, it would be crushed under the load!)

So ... when you post your Postcard Friendship Friday postcards over at "The Best Hearts Are Crunchy" today, be sure to wish BETH a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Dolly Dingle Paper Doll/Postcard

It was several years ago that I picked up a packet of postcards in a bin at the Goodwill Outlet Store. I was overjoyed when I saw what they were!
13 miscellaneous "Dolly Dingle" paper doll postcards!

Most of the postcards had water stains on the backs, which is probably why they were thrown out. Personally, I think the slight discolorations add character to the cards!

I had forgotten about these cards until I was reading that my friend Marlendy, who collects paper dolls, wrote in her blog, "Marges8s Blog" that she is recuperating from surgery.

So this is my "Get Well Soon" gift to you, Marlendy.
Please e-mail me with your address ... I'd love to send you a couple of these beauties!!!

We Missed You ...

I found this old postcard in Grammie's papers ...
She loved teaching Sunday School, and kept track of who was missing each week.

I miss Grammie!
