Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

(Lucy, our diva, was not available…then again, she did not gorge herself, either.)

Though this is late, with it I send all of my prayers and hopes that you and yours have a wonderful, calm Thanksgiving (and if you’re not in the States, I’m still wishing you a marvellous weekend and all of the joy being thankful gives us!).

Since my running-about-like-a-beheaded-chicken is over with, it seemed like a nice time to share some of the lovely vintage Thanksgiving postcards I’ve run across lately. They’re not only charming, but have such a wonderful personal warmth to them. (Unless you don’t like the idea of turkeys in peril.)

Why did we ever stop sending Thanksgiving cards, anyhow?

Two very prettily dressed women, preparing for the feast! The border is appropriate, too.

I cannot blame this turkey for being suspicious of the boy posing as his friend.

This particular postcard seems a bit dark, but it still made me chuckle…plus the little girl is so winsome!

Another lovely lass, bringing in pumpkins for pie—or perhaps to decorate the home.

A lovely sight for those arriving, don’t you think? Though if you ask me, there ought to be cider mulling nearby.

I’ll admit it: This one reminds me of Jell-o with those beautiful bright colours. So it was an automatic inclusion.

Kids hyper due to all of the excitement and sugar overload? Simple fix: Hand the dog part of dinner. Then tell the kids to catch that dog. Problem solved—and your dog will be just as pooped as the kids by the time dinner is saved!

Of course most Thanksgiving cards feature Pilgrims and turkeys, but this is a nice change.

And that’s all. A very happy Thanksgiving to everyone—thank you for popping in to read my blog and leaving your lovely comments. I’m thankful for each and every one to a degree you probably do not even know!
