Happy New Year! 2012...Can you Believe it! Antique New Year Postcard

And a Happy New Year to you all! 2012...amazing isn't it??? Hope you had a lovely New Year's Eve. Ours was quiet, finished by prayer together for God's blessing, presence and provision for the year to come...something we do every New Year's Eve.

This is my favorite New Year antique postcard, and I saved it for today. It's not really incredible, but I love the tactile features which probably don't photograph well. The words Happy New year are made of little flowers that have been overlaid with metallic multicolor glitter...some of which was silver and has tarnished. But it is quite 3 dimensional and still sparkly!

The card is quite old, prior to the divided back and was postmarked Dec. 30, 1906 from Easton, PA to Buffalo, NY. I love the little hand written greeting at the bottom of the front of the card. For more info on this or other antique postcards at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

This is a photo of the fireworks last night in London, England.  The Time Was Antiques Family blog has posted a video of the London fireworks, including Big Ben being used as a launch pad...cool!...so click the fireworks photo above if you would like to see that. I would have loved to have been there!

Have a great day...the first of 2012!
