Once again my cousin didn't disappoint. I received this cute little postcard from her the other day. The little ruffle around the daffy's is gold inked. Not very ornate eggs this year, you can tell the old masters have arthritis and are unable to create. My mother was an old master. She decorated eggs for as long as I can remember. Wonder she didn't burn down the house. She had this self created tool, which was a sewing pin stuck into the end of a pencil eraser. High Tech NO! and then she'd have the parafin wax on a tin lid, on the burner. SMOKEY!!!!! When fire detectors became the law it was also LOUD. When I went off to college I found her the proper utensils, but she never used them. When we cleared her home I found them all still in the paper bag I brought them in. I'll be bring them out later today for my family and I to paint. I love the smell of bees wax, it's so relaxing. Even handy Andy joins in.
This is my post for Postcard Friendship Friday... hosted by Beth at The Best Hearts are Crunchy. Beth and the gang have a tremendous selection of vintage and new postcards, and stories to go along with them. Enjoy a visit.
