EASTER

Old Fashioned Easter Greetings

  1. Delightful collection emphasizing the affirmation and renewal of life. I have a little box of similar cards --inherited from my eldest uncle (born 1898)-- exchanged by post from optimistic cousins in his childhood. There were few assurances back then, no antibiotics (yikes!) but they had confidence and hope and springtime brought them joy. Their Easters were expressions of gentle strength and humor. Thanks for this, Jon.

    1. Your box of inherited cards must truly be a treasure. There is something so satisfying and comforting in these joyous and sentimental tokens of spring.

  2. Lovely collection of old cards. LOVE the chick strutting his stuff carrying the two eggs with flowers. HAPPY EASTER.

    1. The chick carrying the two eggs is one of my favorites, too. I love these old, nostalgic Easter cards - and there were so many nice ones that it was difficult to choose.
      I hope you're feeling better! Take care and have a beautiful Easter.

  3. these are not nightmare fuel, thank the dogs and cats! although the one with the bunnies marching on their hind legs dressed in clothes...(shudder). I like the ones with the fluffy chicks.

    hope you have a sunny day today!

    1. No sunshine this Easter - it's raining!
      I've always liked cute bunnies, but there's something rather sinister about Easter Bunnies - especially the vintage ones. They seem to know too much.....

    1. As long as they don't come into my bedroom after midnight, when I'm trying to sleep.....

  5. Happy Easter my handsome blog friend! I love these old vintage postcards and actually have some. I was out last night and had an overdose of two chocolate sticks and four creme eggs. I'm stuffed and haven't even had dinner yet. Enjoy your day Jon🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣

    1. Sounds like you had one helluva Easter. I'm envious.

  6. I, too, have a collection of olden cards - whose sheer simplicity and optimism is refreshing.
    ... or maybe (probably) their nostalgic effect is more pronounced the older I become. Love the chicks in their Easter bonnets dancing(?) on the egg shells.

    1. Anything nostalgic or sentimental always give me an extremely good feeling. Perhaps I yearn for an innocence now lost - not only in me, but in humanity.

      The Easter bonnet chicks are one of my favorites.

    1. I like the one below the marching band - with the three bunnies.

  8. While everyone, or a lot people, celebrate Christmas because it's such a big commercial holiday, I love Easter because of the colors and the heralding of Spring. I have a collection of cards to which I would be thrilled to add these, just sayin'.

  9. I definitely prefer Easter to Christmas. There's something very satisfying about the beauty and nostalgia of springtime.
