Photos and Postcard from Another Era

Old photos of unknown, happy babies? Antique Dutch postcards? How could I resist these! Antique shopping in New England is pretty fruitful, if you're willing to drive a bit (most Rhode Islanders are not) and spend time in musty old barns and climb rickety stairs and have the patience to hunt. Anyway, I found these irresistable.

Above: the sender wrote her name and the recipient's name above the little girls heads.. how funny!

Above, I think this one says 1972. Not an antique, but cool stamp.

Above, a dancing Doll of Italy...unknown date. Reminds me of the Greek dancers at my church festival.

Above: I have no idea what this means, but isn't it cute! Reminds me of "Heidi".

Above:  One-cent stamp on a postcard from 1913.

I love the laughing babies (above)! The little girl looks so serious.

Above: my favorite, a little Dutch girl with adorable poem that makes you sound native if you read it out loud!
Happy Easter weekend!
