Happy Easter!

I have shared these before, but I thought that you guys might enjoy seeing them again.

These Easter postcards were sent to my great-great grandfather John Letsom to his farm in Scotts Valley and Elkhead, near Yoncalla, Oregon. 

Hope that you all enjoy your Easter Sunday!

The Letsom Letters: Vintage Easter Postcards
 
These postcards were sent to my Great-Great Grandfather, John Letsom between 1913 and 1919.  His birthday was March 13th, and to help him celebrate it in 1915, his friend Sue Burt organized a card shower for Grandpa John.  Since his birthday was near Easter, some folks sent him Easter cards.  We have around 100 birthday postcards of his that were included in "The Letsom Letters".

Kathy, You must be taking a break from blogging--it can be time consuming for sure. Love your old Easter cards. You sure have saved some wonderful items from way back when. Hope all is well and you are enjoying life. Take care and hope to hear from you soon. Mickie :)
