Happy Easter!

I shared this post last year, but I know that many of you missed it, so I am featuring it once more.  Plus, I couldn't think of a better way to wish you all a Happy Easter. 

These postcards were sent to my Great-Great Grandfather, John Letsom between 1913 and 1919.  His birthday was March 13th, and to help him celebrate it in 1915, his friend Sue Burt organized a card shower for Grandpa John.  Since his birthday was near Easter, some folks sent him Easter cards.  We have around 100 birthday postcards of his that were included in "The Letsom Letters".

These postcards are spectacularly pretty, and this is a precious family heirloom of postcards. Sometime I will come back and read more on your sidebar.
Happy Easter.

I think you should show them every year. I hope you've got them on your own Easter display.

I love the designs on old post cards, and these personalized cards are family treasures.
