New Years Greetings
(Using Vintage Postcards)
Here's New Years Greetings to you via Vintage New Years Postcards. Why not send an old dear friend an original postcard from the early 1900's?
If you collect antique postcards, then chances are, you already have a couple to choose from.
For example, check this one out. Look closely! It's a little boy (holding a bag) shooting a pig out of a cannon, isn't it? We had to look twice at that one! Kind of funny!
If you don't have any of these vintage postcards, don't worry. Just, go visit a local antique shop/mall. No doubt, there will be a dealer who has vintage postcards for sale. You should be able to pick up a couple of these antique postcards for a few dollars each.
On this page, we will show you some of our New Year's Greeting postcards. Perhaps, it will inspire you to pull yours "out of the box" and display them.
Here's your chance to show us...your stuff!

Now, we were wondering, what does a motorbike with overflowing flowers have to do with New Years Greetings?
Did you notice that the wheels are flowers, and even the sprockets is made of flowers?
With the exception of the pig being shot out of a cannon (above), the other cards are fairly conentional. The "January 1" card is very nicely done.
And, the birds taking cover underneath an umbrellas is a unique concept.
Now this girl with her fancy dress is quite elequent. This card also features (raised) sparkles which highlights the dress. In addition the sparkles outlines the dress, the hat, floorline, and the shoe.
No wonder, this vintage postcard was made by Raphael Tuck & Sons. It is titled,
"New Year Post Cards" series NO.139
ART PUBLISHERS TO THEIR MAJESTIES THE KING & QUEEN

We love looking through our vintage postcards. Many of them are from our own relatives, so that makes them a little more personal and sentimental.
We really don't have any specific advice here, but more of a sugggestion. Our suggestion to you, the casual postcard collector, is to "do something" with all of those cards.
- Create a holiday display under glass.
- Frame some, or many in a collage.
- Create a video presentation using a digital frame.
That works great!
So, have some fun with them and get creative!
