cats and balloons

these 1930s kitties don't really look too thrilled to be sending out birthday wishes
so  I was thrilled to get this hand made postcard from Finland this week



  1. Somewhere (but, where?) I have a postcard like these vintage ones that was sent to my mother in the early 1920's - it was actually a birthday card from her grandmother. These days, greetings cards (especially ones emblazoned with 'Happy Birthday'!) tend to come with envelopes! I wonder if the postman read the greeting....? ;-p

    SueH at The Knitting Assassin!

  2. Happy birthday to you!!!

    The handmade card is beautiful.

  3. Happy Birthday....I like the kitties though.

  4. I love the kitty birthday postcards. I have some of a similar age and style.

  5. These cards are wonderful! I especially love the firest one. lol Although that grand kitty in the second postcard reminds me of our Main Coon Elvis. (sigh) Still miss that big boy.

    Have a lovely weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

  6. Happy Birthday! The handmade is really nice. I like the 1st kitty card too especially the greeting.
    Hope you have a great weekend with lots of surprises.

  7. That's funny - the cats do look remarkably ... not unhappy exactly, but a little glum.

  8. Happy birthday. Your posts are very interesting. Stamps and postcards are an art form that is part of our cultural history.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
