Postcard Friendship Friday... Happy Valentine's Day

Well it's that time of year again, when we all expect a romantic gesture from our significant other.  This is a little card from my personal collection (not that I received it, he's not quite that romantic).  The reverse sentiment reads: To my sweet Valentine, and is addressed to a Mrs. Mary A. Veneall, in Bloomfield ON.  and that's the whole address. Doesn't that kill you, no zip code, no house number, obviously everyone knows Mary, or maybe just the postman. Hmmm?  (P.S. I just watched the Postman Rings Twice the other night so I can't help but be suspicious, or maybe it's all that CSI stuff.) The locket portion of the card is embossed as are the Capital letters of the sentiment.  Sweet NO? 

I'll be sitting on pins and needles awaiting my card.  Well maybe I better go buy one for myself.   Have a wonderful Valentine you all.

LOL, go buy one just to be safe! That vintage card is precious. I got a two pots of spring flowers today, so I'm happy!

I have a few old cards that have partial addresses ... one of them just a street without a city - and they still got delivered!

This is a beautiful card for Valentine's Day - I hope yours is happy!

Happy PFF!

This is so interesting, isn't it? Such a sweet card, but what an address! Times were simpler... but then, we didn't live as long or have microwave ovens. My coffee would never be warm enough!
Happy Valentine's Day!

I love cards...birthday or otherwise. I still have a scrapbook from my childhood with the cards I received from special people.

Thanks for visiting my Saturday Snapshot.

I have several of those old postcards as well without a complete address. It's amazing they even made it. Lisa
