Ruby Tuesday ~ Antique Postcards

For Ruby Tuesday I’d like to share these antique Valentine Day Post Cards that Dear’s Great, great Aunt Emma received from 1909 to 1915. They all have 1 cent stamps on them.

 

 

To see more Ruby’s visit Mary at the Work of the Poet. Happy February Everyone!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Hi Ellen,
    My birthday is Valentine’s Day so I collect old valentines and I have a couple of postcards. They are getting more expensive to buy that when I first started.
    Love these!

  2. These are beautiful, made in a time where the artistic details made all the difference when presented as a sentimental gift. I am partial to the romantic kitties. However, the last one – does this mean I am to buy diamonds and rings for Patti to present with my card??

  3. What treasures these are! I love the one with the little Dutch children on it (I don’t know why I’ve always loved Dutch graphics). How wonderful that they were actually received by a family member. I really enjoyed seeing these. laurie

  4. My favorite is the one of proposal. I swoon. I love your antique postcard collection. It is a sweet reminder of things past that should be brought present. Thanks for sharing.

  5. These are just so wonderfyl! Bless her for keeping them and bless her for passing them on to you….and bless you for sharing them. Ven vill you…. I love that one!

  6. Ellen, those are precious keepsakes. My fave is the one with the two cats giving loving (((hugs))). 🙂

  7. They’re all so very charming….but it’s the 1 cent stamp that boggles my mind….and with that I’m sure the postal service is better back then…than today’s!!

    My R T is what I’d like to think as the rose from Phantom of the Opera. HERE

  8. What a GORGEOUS collection, Ellen! I do love old postcards, and especially the Valentine cards. I love anything old and nostalgic… Thanks for sharing this with us today! ((HUGS))

  9. Aren’t the old postcards charming? “Ven vill you vhisper…” is just hilarious.

    Also, pretty neat how you (below) worked the Wolf Moon and FarmersAlmanac.com data into a post!

  10. I have seen images of old Valentine’s, but I’ve never known anyone who had actual cards which had been sent to a family member… And they appear to be in pristine condition too! What an absolute treasure these are♥
