JOYEUSES PAQUES - Vintage French Easter Cards

Whilst browsing french ebay recently for Easter decorations I came across these beautiful vintage Easter cards, mostly dating from the early 1900's.

A fluffy yellow chick & pussy willow.

The message to Demoiselles Venon reads
"Bonjour et vous en brasse Espagnol"

The message on this card was from "votre petite eleve, que ne vous oublie pas"
to Mademoiselle Mathilde de Vierseu.
Postmarked 29.111.07 a Paris.

The postmark on the last card below reads:
New York, N.Y. STA. H.
and is dated
March 29, 11.30 PM 1912.
It was mailed to M'selle Mathilde Engels
chez Villa des Fougeres
Avenue des Arenes de Ciminez
I know that I'm a little late in sending my Easter Greetings to all my friends in blogland but we've been without the internet solidly now for 4 days!
I'm writing this post at breakneck speed to try and get it posted before we lose access again.
To those of you who have been kind enough to comment on previous posts, I've really missed visiting your blogs and will try and get back to all of you as soon as normal service is resumed.
Joyeuses Paques everyone.
This Easter Sunday I'm joining the Tablescaper once again for Seasonal Sundays.

  5. Such pretty postcards. I love finding out information on people who received these cards. I have many Christmas ones and found that the little boy who sent one card just lived down the street from her. He was about 7 and she was an older woman of 11. I think a crush was involved.

  6. Welcome back to blogland after your 4 day vacation. I am glad you are finally back online! I love anything vintage and French. The Easter cards are so pretty. Thanks for sharing them with us!
