Easter Wishes from 1916 - A Hundred Years of Chicks and Bunnies!

Good morning, Tina here.

Today I am sharing postcards which were sent in 1916 as Easter greetings.

A lot of the same themes show up in the art on these cards. Daffodils are popular, as the harbringers of spring.

A floral cross with forget-me-nots and another daffodil.

Angelic faces!

More daffodils. Although Easter falls rather early this year, our spring was earlier, and we will have few daffodils left blooming by this Sunday.

Chicks. Definitely a sight of spring.

We have no clematis here in Kelsey, not for lack of trying, they just don't seem to like our soil or climate.

I am not sure what flowers these are supposed to be, I am guessing primroses?

Can't forget the Easter bonnet! It really is a shame that bonnets have gone out of style. What a great way for a lady to make a fashion statement!

The joy of receiving a package in the mail, obviously her Easter bonnet. Her bunny just happens to be snacking on a bit of green.

Easter eggs, crocus and Easter lilies. I love this illustration!

Chicks offer violets, daffodils, and lilies to our bonneted lass.

Wishing a joyful Easter to you all!

Oh, you so know my love for retro images, esp. vintage cards.

I am going to snag another one of your images for my Easter post. (The little girl being stylish ...)

Wonderful collection! Thanks for sharing. Clematis goes nuts here-- can really be invasive.

Oh, how I adore antique postcards!!
I cannot pick a favorite; all of them are so special in their very own ways.
Thank you for this beautiful Easter post.
