Wishing You A Merry Christmas With A Few Thoughts From Me

Meet my great nephews and neice.. are they not adorable.. Boy do I miss seeing those faces weekly.
As this wonderful Christmas holiday approaches us I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and pray that we all welcome in a wonderful New Year. I pray that our next year is better and more prosperous than the last for all of us.
As we share the holidays with our family and friends lets please think and pray for those that are less fortunate then us. Pray for the hungry, the homeless and those suffering from addictions , diseases and mental illness. My one thought always is " but for the grace of God there go I ".
Lets take a moment and pray for our service men and service women. And for those that are in harms way in a foreign country give them an extra thought and prayer. Pray for their families that are left here to deal with every day happenings without them. The majority of them do so much for so little.
Lets pray for our government officials that they have the wisdom to do what is best for all of us and the knowledge to do it with out fighting.
If you are still blessed to have your parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts be thankful. Take a moment to hug and kiss them. Take a few minutes and ask them to share their stories with you. Some day sadly they will be gone and you will then wish that you knew more of their history.
I am reminded of a conversation at my hubby's birthday party. I made a comment about getting married the first time and my step son and his family had never heard that story. I have been married to husband #2 for almost 22 years. We celebrate our wedding anniversary on the 30Th of December. They know very little about my history. That is probably my fault and maybe some of theirs.

This is hubby and me 10 years ago at a dinner theater on New Years eve. Guess it is time to get a new nice picture of us. He still has the tie and I probably still have that outfit. Question is can I still get into it.
So much contact today is emails and text messages. I personally detest text messages saying" happy anything " Take a moment and call your family. Here a voice and say I love you to some one. When I get one I just delete it as if it did not happen.
Except for one text message from my grand daughter Kirsten. She sent me one and it is of a loud " Kiss " and "I Love You "I play it often. It was not sent for a birthday, Christmas message or any reason other than she thought of me and sent it. Grandpa got one too. Thanks Kirsten I smile when I replay it.
I am busy always searching and writing about my ancestors but I guess it is time to do some sharing of my life in writing. How I wish I had more of my parents, grandparents and past relatives stories. There are so many stories untold. As I share some of my life on my family blog site I have been printing some of them so I can give to family in the future.
Now with all of that I will leave you for now. It is time to make another pot of coffee, put on one of my favorite Christmas movies " Love Actually " with Hugh Grant and make my Watergate Salad for our Christmas eve party tonight.
I appreciate all of you that take a moment to visit my sites and to those of you who leave a message an extra thank you . Merry Christmas to you and your families .. Grace

Santa Is Wishing You A Merry Christmas Vintage Postcard 1915

Christmas is really creeping up on us, isn't it. This is my first Christmas in Minnesota in five years. Hubby and I spent 3 years in Southern California and then 1 1/2 in in Texas. No snow for all those Christmas.

We are now in Duluth and there is snow on the ground. Even though I hate the cold, icy roads and everything that goes with winter, it is so beautiful.

Here is another of my vintage Christmas postcards... we have Santa in his red suit going down the chimney. What happens if you do not have a chimney? That is what I wondered when I was a little girl.

This lovely card is postmarked 1915 Wisconsin and sent to a child by the last name of Butler of Janesville Wisconsin. Sadly the postmark goes over the first name.

Message is Dear Letha (hard to make out first name with the writing). I have never heard of Letha.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and many presents. I am sure you have been a good girl and deserve them.
with love
Wilma L Bouibeau ?

Front of postcard says
Here I come the broad
chimney flue,
Bringing best Christmas wishes to you!

I am sharing this on Vintage Thingie Thursday

My wish to all of you is to have a wonderful holiday. Thanks for stopping by.. Grace

Memories of Winter Through Vintage Postcards

I grew up in Duluth, Minnesota. It snowed by the first of December and stayed with us till spring. As a child I loved it. I would be outside playing, sliding down our little hill or trying to ski down this same hill. It really was not much of hill. That was the extent of my sking.

Here I am on my one and only pair of skies. It was about 1961. No hat, mittens and this was a fake leather jacket. Not very warm clothing. No wonder my grandfather was always yelling at me to put on a hat and gloves. This is our back hard and at the top of this little hill.

What I really loved to do was ice skate. The rink was at my grade school which was just 3 to 4 blocks away. I could spend hours there. How I hated it when the boys would take over the rink to play hockey. Maybe that is why I am not interested in hockey today. Rotten little boys hogging the rink.

Today's post card is a skiers view from the slopes of Elk Mountain Ski Center in Northeast Pa. near Scranton, Carbondale and Forest City. Here skiers prepare for a run to the ski lodge below.

Back of post card states this beautiful photo is by Ralph E Menne.

I especially find the tree beautiful and how it frames this postcard. But I love trees and I am always taking pictures of them. I just may have to post a few on my Live Goes On One Photo At A Time blog.

My mama was an amateur painter and once painted me a picture of a dead tree on a hill. I love that painting.
Thanks for stopping by.. hope to see you again soon.. Grace

Friendship Friday Vintage Postcard To Be Displayed In Historical Center

Hello vintage post card lovers. Here is an update to my last posting about Princeton, Minnesota postcard. One of the buildings has a Sherwin Williams advertising sign.

Well I received an email yesterday from the Midwestern Division President.

Email as follows

I am the President of Sherwin-Williams Midwestern Division. I happened to see your blog and noticed the postcard with the Sherwin Williams sign on the side of the building. It was very interesting. We (Sherwin Williams) have a historic "Center of Excellence" in our corporateheadquarters in Cleveland, OH. I was wondering if you would be willing to have a copy made of that postcard that could be displayed in our Centerof Excellence. I am willing to compensate you for your trouble.

I have made a very nice copy of my postcard and will be mailing it off to be displayed in their historical center. I am glad that my great grandfather Appleton held on to this card and that was passed on to me by my mother. A copy of this will now be displayed in the Historical Center for Sherwin Williams.

Now I have to untangle the mystery behind the postcard to Great Grandpa Appleton.
Thanks for stopping by.. Happy Friendship Friday

Mysteries Can Be Found In Vintage Family Postcards

Great vintage postcards are not only fun to look at but can be great additions to our genealogy family histories.

Today's posting is of an old card of Princeton Minnesota and the street scene of Eastern Ave. Post mark is hard to read, with magnifying glass looks like could be 1909 . At the bottom left of the post card is written copyrighted 1909. So that makes this postcard 101 years old.

The street scene has many businesses including Williams Paint on a sign on first building on the left and on the right middle of the block is a sign for a bakery and restaurant plus other signs that I can not make out. I did a search on Sherwin Williams and found they started in 1866 so this is an old sign advertising their paint

There are residents on the left and one person walking on the right hand side. Most interesting is in the middle of the postcard are two wires in the sky and something is hanging from one. My thought is that it is a person crossing the street on the wire some how.

It is addressed to Appleton Esler of Mora Minnesota who was my grandma's step father .
What is written in pencil is hard to understand.

Dear Appleton
? cant possibly meet ? this week and I am not able to do my work now
Please don't send her ? a few days yet as I cant get any one to help me.
signed by maybe Jane? ( who is this )

This is a mystery to me. I do not know a lot about great grandpa Appleton as of now. He married my great grandmother in 1893 and raised my grandmother as his. He was married once or twice before.

If you have not thought of adding vintage postcards to your family history books you may want to think about that.

I will be adding this posting to my genealogy blog at . Stop over there if you have any interest in genealogy.

FRIENDSHIP FRIDAY The Beauty Of Duluth and Lake Superior

Here is another beautiful vintage postcard from my collection of Duluth Minnesota and Lake Superior. Today is Friendship Friday and you can view other contributors at
This one is the Aerial Lift Bridge and Ship Canal Entrance to Duluth Superior Harbor.
We are living on park point which is on the left hand side of the bridge as you are looking at it. Every day we cross this bridge to go into the Duluth down town. I love to the view of the lake as we cross the bridge.
Of course you need to try and time your crossing of the bridge as every half hour the bridge may go up to let boats go in and out of the harbor.
From the back of the post card is the following statement
The unique Aerial Lift Bridge and Ship Canal Entrance to Duluth Superior Harbor is an outstanding attraction of this popular summer vacation city. Total bridge load is 900 tons. Only 55 seconds are required to lift the span 135 feet. The Harbor is second only to that of New York City in shipping tonnage and through it passes about 60 percent of America's iron ore production from the great iron ores just north of Duluth.
Post card is unused .. printed by Zenith Interstate News Co Duluth, Minnesota and requires a one cent stamp.
This is not one of my oldest but is a beautiful postcard in my collection.

thanks for stopping by.. I hope that you take a few minutes and look at some of my other vintage Duluth postcards

I love old vintage postcards, some can be over 100 years old. They were first commercially produced and introduced in the United States in 1893. These vintage post cards give us a glimpse into the past. They can show us places, and fashions and even humor of the past.
From this site I found this wonderful information all in one place. Take a moment and look at his site after wandering looking at my vintage postcards

The Postcard Eras:Pioneer Era (1873 - 1898): The earliest United States Postal Cards were those issued by the post office. Distribution of those cards started on May 12, 1873. The first commercial postcards produced in this country were sold at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago Illinois in 1893. These were the first privately printed souvenir postcards.

Private Mailing Card Era (1898 - 1901): American publishers were allowed to print and sell cards marked "Private Mailing Card, Authorized by Act of Congress on May 19, 1898." Required 1 cent postage. The back of the card was for the address only, messages had to be written on the front.

Undivided Back Era (1901 - 1907): The government granted private printers the right to use the term "Post Card" on the back of private postcards on December 24, 1901. The back was still for the address only. Most picture postcards of this era had a white space a the bottom or to the side of the picture where the name of the sender and a short messages could be written. The publication of Real Photo Postcards started during this era. During this era, other countries started to allow the use of divided back postcards (allowing a message on the address side). England was the first to allow divided back postcards in 1902, France followed in 1904, Germany in 1905, and finally the United States in 1907

Divided Back Era (1907 - 1914): Postcards with a divided back, allowing for writing on the address side, were allowed in March of 1907. The postcard collecting hobby flourished during this time. In an age without radio or television, picture postcards offered an inexpensive and accessible view of the world. Up to this point, most postcards had come from Germany. Germany was more advanced in lithographic printing and the early German printed cards are of exceptional quality. With the World War, however, postcards had to come from England or the United States

White Border Era (1915 - 1930): Most of these were printed in the U.S. A white border was left around the picture during the printing process to save on ink costs. The descriptions printed on the back of the postcard got a little longer during this era. These postcards cards were often of poorer quality than earlier cards. There were fewer greetings postcards during this period, but scenic, events, and other types of cards remained popular

Linen Era (1930 - 1944): There are lots of linens out there. A new printing process allowed use of a high rag content paper with a linen look. If you look closely at these cards, you can see a weave texture in the paper. This new process also allowed for the use of bright, gaudy ink colors, resulting in very vivid, but somewhat unnatural coloring of the postcard pictures. Some linens were printed with a white border and other were printed "full bleed" - with colors extending to the outside edge of the card. Curt Teich, a Chicago postcard publisher, flourished during this era.Although linen cards may seem abundant to the collector, there were actually fewer of these cards printed than in earlier eras. Postcard collecting was not a popular hobby during this period and few people kept postcard albums. Many linen postcards were disposed of after being received.

Photo chrome Era (1945 - Present): The photo chrome, or chrome postcard is the type of postcard in use today. The first cards printed with this process were introduced by the Union Oil Company in their Western service stations in 1939. Photo chrome cards feature colorful photographic images, but should not be confused with Real Photo postcards. The photo chromes are reproduced through a printing process, while real photo postcards were actual photographs printed on special postcard sized photographic paper.

I can not pass a pile of postcards with out stopping and looking through them. I love the older ones and those that are written on are my favorites.
What kind are your favorites. I would love to hear from you in the comment section.
Thanks for stopping by.. Grace
