Happy Halloween

One of the little things I collect are vintage Halloween postcards. The ones I love the best are from the 1920s and 30s, and feature pumpkins, gourds, etc. in some kind of anthropomorphic form and often they are riding in vehicles. For quite a few years I have enjoyed scanning the old cards and then editing them digitally to be a card for the current holiday. Yea Photoshop! I like keeping the same greeting that was originally on the card, but often the text needs to be redone. And of course, I like to add the year.

Wishing all of you a spooky holiday!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you as well Becky. I love your vintage Halloween card. Sooooooo cute and what a great idea for a collection.

Thanks Carolyn. I hope you have a wonderful time with your grandchildren.

I decided I'm going to have to order some of those edible wafers of the vintage cards that Julie did. Those are too cool.

I used to have a small collection of these vintage and classic Halloween postcards too. The collection was eventually sold, but sometimes that decision is regretted (like today).

Craig, postcards don't take up too much space. I also have some of those big letter souvenir postcards that I am scanning. Will print them and use to cover a lampshade for the floor lamp in the living room at the farm. That will fit the decor perfectly.
