Count down to a New Year... it is hard to believe it will be 2011 in just a few days.
With this darling vintage postcard, we have a darling young angel watching the sands of time pass.
Just waiting for the New Year to come and his turn to be in the spot light.
I guess it can not be said much better than that in this simple postcard that was published by the Gibson Art Co. of Cincinnati.
The back is divided and is probably from the time period of 1907 to 1914.
I am sharing this with
Thank you for stopping by.. I hope that you will take a moment and see some of my other vintage postcards and please come back again real soon.... Grace

From 1911 it wishes us
Good Luck and a Happy New Year
May good fortune favour you
I love the adorable little person sitting in the golden horse shoe
Postmarked Dec 30, 1911 from Sioux city Iowa to Mr. Geo Marchis of North Dakota
Sadly I can not really make out the message since it is written in tiny writing and signed Mr. O'Keefe.

We are now nearing New Years Eve and time to share some of my vintage New Years Postcards.
Isn't this a pretty scene with the barren trees and the peaceful creek.
The vintage postcards is unused. I am guessing that it is from the early 1900's. Our pretty card tells us this wonderful message
A Bright New year
In hope your New Year will be spent
in cheer and comfort and content.
And every task you set to do
Will bring a bright reward to you

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.

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.
