Vintage postcards


Carmi often talks about vintage postcards. I really have never paid any attention to postcards until she peeked my interest. I know what you're going to say, "you don't need another interest", just clean your house". Well I was doing just that, trying to sift through all that stuff from my mother's house when my sister Barb and I came across these post cards, they are blanks, I suppose you purchased them at Canada Post and they were pre stamped at 8 cents. Must have been in the 1800's because Canada Post doesn't even have an 8 cent stamp any more. What a laugh. I'm not sure what I'll do with them but I instantly thought of Carmi. Now I suppose if I needed an excuse to not continue the clean up (I know I'll never be finished) I could do some research on how old this postcard is, but I'm on a clear this box mission today, as I'm not up to vacumming just yet, too pooped. (literally)

I would alter them and then mail them back to myself!
