I found a yard sale that was being put on by some retired antique dealers from Pennsylvania. They had a little wooden box FULL of antique postcards, and though I usually don't look through this sort of thing, but the top one had a peculiar-looking gnome on it. Lately, gnomes have kind of been my thing. I had to have it, and searched through looking for other fabulous finds. SO... I bought about 14 postcards between a trip Friday and then a trip back on Saturday. They literally had over 100, and all of the postmarks were from around 1909-1914. She wanted $1 for them, but offered me a deal since I am just so unhumanly cute (or something). Anyway, I got all 14 for like $8. I am not sure what to do with them, but they are just lovely and so detailed! I might frame them.
This little guy reminds me of a Jennifer Murphy creation! The background is a pretty brushed-gold, which isn't really seen in the scan. Postmarked 1910.
I think this one is so sweet! I guess rabbits playing trumpets are responsible for the world's egg-hatching.
My absolute favorite! I suppose the only the in the world that can interrupt a reading-gnome is a rabbit bearing gifts :-)
