Vintage Thanksgiving Postcards

Before Thanksgiving, I picked up these vintage Thanksgiving post cards.  I thought they were really pretty. 
 
There is some pretty embossing on the cards. 
 

One of the cards had some writing on the back.  There is also a 1 cent stamp on it.  You can click on the picture to enlarge it, but here's what it says: 

"Dear Lula, We are all well.  Hope you are the same.  I am going to move a wk from Thursday.  My address will be Alvada, Ohio.  Love to All, Flossie Phillips"

The address says "Mrs Lula Shaffer, Dumcombe Iowa RFD."

RFD stands for "rural free delivery", which was mail delivery to rural parts of the United States.  This service began in 1891.

How is everyone's weekend going?  Everyone full from Thanksgiving food and leftovers?  Are you doing any Christmas shopping or decorating?  I'm taking a small break from my usual blogging this weekend. 

Back to our usual posts on Monday.

I love vintage ephemera and have a handful of vintage postcards myself. Your cards are great! The names (Lula and Flossie) sure are dead giveaways as to the vintage nature of the cards. ;)

Thanks for linking to my party. I look forward to seeing what you link up each week.
