Thanksgiving 1015

 These Raphael Tuck postcards were 
sold here in America in 1916.
 Attributed to Samuel L. Schmucker
 Adorable children in sweet outfits.


  1. These are so sweet with such a simple, sincere message. They are a glimpse into children's lives almost 100 years ago!

  2. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Love the post cards...

  3. Sending best wishes your way, and hoping you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to your family. I sure hope you will have a comfortable and enjoyable day.

  5. These cards are so sweet! I do love the outfits. Hope your Thanksgiving was good. I ate to much as usual, but that's what we're suppose to do, right?

  6. I love when you post these old cards. The illustrations just make me feel good.

  7. Hello Mrs. Farley, I am Vivian King, and I have just, very recently, come upon your blog and what a delight it is. Your work is wonderful. I appreciate all you share of your work as it has inspired and encouraged me to press on with my doll making. I, too, love hand sewing and put away my electric machines several years ago. The interaction with the fabric, the piece I am working on at the time and the final outcome far surpasses the time I spent on my electric sewing machine.

    Again, thank you so much.
    In Joy,

    1. Thank you Vivian for you very kind comment. I am so pleased you found my little blog and enjoy the posts. Creating with our hands is such a rewarding experience.......I would love to see your dollies, feel free to e-mail me!

  8. How wonderful these all look! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year!


Leave me a message. I would love to hear from you.
