I'm happy to be back online in time to celebrate another PFF! A few months ago our hostess, Marie from Cpaphil Vintage Postcards, posted this picture of a pillow she bought. As soon as I saw it I thought "I can do that!" And here it is:
I used a scan of a postcard my Granddaddy sent my Bigmother, my mother's parents, when they were dating in December of 1917. He writes "Here's hoping for you the happiest of all Happy Christmases you ever had, and then some. Clarence" Notice her address. It is just her name and the town she lived in. Didn't my granddaddy have beautiful handwriting. If you look closely at the top of the card you will see my Bigmother's handwriting where she wrote in ballpoint pen many years later "His 1st Xmas to me."
I made the pillow as a Mother's Day gift for my mother. She loved it.
