As mentioned earlier, my husband and I are building a vintage postcard scrapbook one postcard at a time. The album spans 100 years from 1860 to 1960 and many slots are yet to be filled.
This is my last postcard. Monday I’ll be blogging and writing as usual. Come December next, I’ll roll out the postcards again. If I’m lucky, the summer hunting will turn up some fun ones to share.
Happy New Year, one and all. May the next bring you health and happiness, joy and friendship, and prosperity of all kinds.
Words Worth Mentioning for January
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

I don’t know what the potato thing was unless it was a reference to the Irish potato famine–what year was that? But the little piggy on the green card is most likely a German reference– When I was young( in around early 70’s) our German neighbours introduced us to a new tradition–They said you give someone a marzipan pig on News Years for good luck. I used to put them in the Christmas stockings until the German bakery in town closed up. It was a tradition I really enjoyed.
Thank-you for reminding me of this wonderful memory
