Vintage Xmas Postcard

I love vintage cards. I found this when I was sorting out some papers. I probably picked it up at a market for about $1. It has been hand painted.

Front of Card;


My Thoughts Are Always With You Dear,
Yes, Day By Day
I'm Hoping All Is Well With You,
On Life's Long Way,

Or Should Some Dark'ning Cloud Arise,
May I Be Near
To Shelter And Protect You Still
And Comfort, Dear.

But I Would Have True Happiness,
No Shade of Care,
But All That's Bright And Beautiful
To Be Your Share.

If All Earth's Brightest Gems Were Mine
I'd Freely Give,
But I Can Hope And Pray For You,
Whilst I Shall Live.


And in gold writing 'Hearty Xmas Greetings'

Back of Card;

Dear Lilly,

Just a few lines wishing you a Merry Christmas and a bright and happy New year, from Rose xx

What a nice card! It's almost that time of year.

If you have a second please stop by the bucket project and let us know one thing you want to do before you kick the bucket. We'd greatly appreciate it!
