Getting Sentimental About Vintage Postcards

If you are a frequent visitor to my blog
then you'll notice I have a thing for

Especially the kind with beautiful
images of roses.

I like to go through them, admire the artwork,
 and I'll even read them.
This one caught my eye because the address
section was written a little bit different
from the rest.

It reads:
Send me along in a rambling way,
To Millerstown Perry Co, Penna
There then let me be:
Till Mr. William Bitting
Calls for Me.

I just thought it was the sweetest sentiment
and thoughtful way to send a postcard.

Although, I'm sure if we did this now,
in most of our cities, it would
not arrive to it's destination.

But it is a time captured
forever on a postcard.

When the postman knew
there was only one person in that town
named William Bitting.

These are the sweet rewards of
antiquing buying and collecting.

I also found a few other
sweet finds this past weekend.

Stay tuned for a sneak
peek, coming up in my next post!

OH -- that is so wonderful! I just bought some vintage postcards and was commenting that the addresses WERE so simple and the postage SO cheap!
