...Down a dirt road, past woods and fields sits a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof ~
it's here you'll find me pulling thread and wool through linen and chasing after my kittens…

I love my life and those I share it with….

A Look Back ~

yesterday, I received a christmas card from my sister Louisea & her family...
along with her handwritten wishes of a Merry Christmas and sentiment of love, was this:

an antique, embossed postcard ~
perfect condition, beautiful colors.
 ...can you imagine sending your holiday greetings for 1 cent?
those were the days...
 

~ one penny ~
 
simply address to:
Miss Lucille Bernhard Tyrrell, Ohio R.R.#1
and of course, the tiny handwritten script on the back...
which reads:
"Tues P.M. ~
Dear Lucille; Thanks for your pretty card. I can't hardly wait until I see you. Made more candy today. Hope your teeth are all allright, to help eat it.
Aunt Cora has a baby girl, another skunk yesterday.
Wish I could visit your school Friday. Didn't we have a good time last Xmas? Mind about the calendar? Mary"
 
 
tiny penciled script
 this postcard is 9 days shy of it's 100 year postmark date ~
hope I age as gracefully
 the postmark even has the time stamped on it...do we still do that?
now we have to track, confirm and insure.
and they still don't get it right.
 
 
1912 DEC 18 8AM
 
wishing you all a simpler holiday!
 
Blessings from the Farm
Lori
