Celebrating New Year's Eve with 100 Year Old Postcards

Good morning. Tina here. It is New Year's Eve, the last day of 2014.

I am going to share some of the New Year's post cards that were sent out as greetings 100 years ago.

Below a Shirley Temple look-alike, before she was a twinkle in her father's eye, asks for smiles in the new year. A great idea even 100 years later, right?

A cozy New England farm and a horseshoe for good luck.

A greeting shared on a frosted window.

A wishbone and many wishes.

The poinsettia is a familiar holiday flower still.

Even a century ago we were not sure about keeping our resolutions...

Gosh, our snowman looks just like Daddy. Must be the tie.

Oops. This reminds me of the time we were sledding with our Daddy in his homemade toboggan, and the three of us just about crushed him when we ran into a stump.

Mr. Snowman, we wish you a great new year too!

Down by the old mill stream, we send you a new year's greeting.

Finally, a favorite of mine as a nasturtium collector, a lovely floral greeting.

Have a Happy New Year and may your wishes last another 100 years.
