Good morning, Tina here.
Years ago, I gave Heidi a present. It was a beautiful postcard that had been framed.
It showed some gorgeous Victorian homes with a rose hedge.
I loved that postcard, and ever after looked for one to keep for my own.
I looked in antique stores, at postcard shows, on the internet at postcard dealer sites, on ebay.
I found roses and old homes abounding on postcards, just not "the one". But I never gave up.
Two days ago I looked at my email and there it was, for sale on ebay with a Buy It Now tag, for a whopping $2.49!
My very own "California looks good to me. Roses in Midwinter." postcard. It was mailed in Pasadena to New York in 1910. And it's mine, all mine. I am going to frame it and no longer will I need to envy Heidi her lovely postcard.
