"Good Wishes for Thanksgiving Day"

I was looking through my stash of vintage postcards recently and would have sworn I had already scanned this one and shared it here before, but as I scrolled back through years of Thanksgiving posts, I couldn't find it, so here's the story: first, I had to have this card when I saw the pretty blue-and-white teapot on the mantel and also because it says "Good Wishes for Thanksgiving Day."

The message, though, makes this card even more fun. The back of the card is addressed to a Miss Maud Whitesides of La Salette, Ontario, Canada, and reads, "Hello Maud, How are you these days? Have been looking for a letter. Try and not eat too much turkey on Thanksgiving day. Eliza." 

Unlike Eliza, I'm not going to tell you not to eat too much turkey tomorrow, but I do wish you all a very, very Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Hey Angela!
    The postcard is precious..the greeting both front and back. And the pictures in the historical society post were so delightful. What a fun time!
    I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
    Blessings, Linda

  2. Fantastic! I adore reading old postcards. My Aunt Dixie constantly tells me she's "been looking for a letter". Haha. Thanks for sharing a lovely card. Have a blessed Thanksgiving and eat all you want to! ;)

  3. That's a very nice vintage post card! I see that it was made in Germany (it would have been pre-World-War-I Germany). The Candian stamp shows King Edward VII--he succeeded his mother Queen Victoria upon her death in 1901 and reigned until his own death in 1910.
    To Angela and everybody else reading this--Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I love the old postcard, great find.

  5. Lovely postcard. Wishing you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving to you. I happened onto Renaissance Ribbons and saw teacup ribbon in pink and blue.

    1. Thank you for the tip! Now you've got me lusting after all these gorgeous ribbons--ha!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
