Dates to mark – dates reminding me of loss but of lives well lived – my mother, my sister, my sister-in-law. The birth of a grandson and the birth of a son. The birth of a life-long friend.
That is a striking piece of knitting!
I have been buying a number of postcards online from dealers all over the country and a few even from dealers in Europe and Asia. They come in various safe and secure ways. I really appreciate when the dealer is obviously interested in stamps as well as postcards. And I have resurrected my interest in stamp collecting. Pictured above is a U.S. stamp of a bluebird. It is on an envelope postmarked Phoenix Arizona, 17 April 2021.
More colorfull was an envelope postmarked Rockport Maine. Look at the great stamps on that envelope. Four different images – that dealer went out of his way to use as many stamps as he could. Bonanza! Note the stamp honoring Frances E. Willis. I have a lot of Willis ancestors. I wonder if this Frances is among them.
The only information that I have about these 2 postcards is that they were printed in Switzerland. They feel old. Love them.
