A Postcard

A couple of days ago, I added my blog's name to a list on Beth's blog http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/ and didn't realize actually what the list was for. Actually if you signed up, you should post a postcard on your own blog which I didn't do. So, Beth, I am posting this cute little old card that was actually sent to my husband by his Aunt Ella way back in 1929 when he was three years old. Aunt Ella was a very prim and proper looking lady and she had a special way to do her makeup - but first you younger girls should know that rouge (or blush as it's called now) came in small compact like cases with a little round flat puff. Aunt Ella would take the little puff and rub it on the rouge then round and round on each cheek in a circle the size of a silver dollar or a little larger. I don't think anyone would have ever been able to tell her she should tone it down, even her two daughters who were very classy.

So if I sign up for anymore lists, I will know what to do. And, Beth, I enjoy your blog and love the name of it!
