Sale! Wonderful 1918 Mother’s postcard is joined with a vintage unsigned Warner cat pin. The cat is in a gold tone setting and features pave rhinestones with green crystal eyes and a red crystal nose.. It is in excellent, I’d say mint, condition A green ribbon completes the "picture." This is a charming gift that almost any woman would love! I have been selling these at craft shows and in my shop for two years and people adore them. Many women have purchased ten of them (the most was 23!) - some to give - some to keep. The white price tag will be removed.
This postcard shows a wreath made of violets, a blue ribbon, a golden horseshoe and says, “To My beloved Mother.”
The postcard is standard postcard size: 5 1/2" x 3 1/3". It was mailed in 1918 to Mrs. Anna Walington (?) in Montpelier, IN. It was from mailed in Lafontaine, Indiana. There is a 2 cent stamp! The sentiment on the back is difficult to read but here is an attempt: Dear Mother/ How are you?/ Aunt Ada called up here and said you wasent quite so well said something about the other arm. What about it? Is that poision in it now? We are all well but the baby. It is his cold and teeth I think. Elmer wanted to come up there to work but Ethel was afraid she wouldent be satisfied I guess that they would be so far away from home. Have them.......(I can’t read) Your daughter Emma Because this is an authentic antique postcard there is some wear on the corners and edges of the card. There is also a slight bend on one corner. This is not a reproduction.
Was $27.99 - now $22.99 -
These make wonderful gifts and are loved by some for the jewelry; some for the charm of the postcards; and others just because they are so unique and nostalgic! Recipient can remove the pin to wear or can use the complete gift for display.

The Story of the Postcards
Many have asked how I came up with the idea for the “bejeweled” postcards. I answer, “It was actually my dog, Jasper!” I had purchased about 1500 antique postcards at an auction ten years ago and had never done anything with them. They were in boxes on the floor. I was cleaning a rhinestone pin. I was also throwing a ball for Jasper, who is obsessed with ball playing. This ball happened to go behind the boxes of postcards and he was pawing and clawing to get it out. As a result, he knocked over all the postcards. I put the pin down, let him out, returned the cards to the box, and discovered there was another one I hadn’t seen. I put it on the table next to the pin and went to let Jasper in. When I came back, I was astonished at how pretty that pin and postcard looked together and so it began...... Thanks to my wonderful dog!
