Postcard Friendship Friday

I am happy to say this is actually a postcard that my husband received from his great aunt Ella when he was just a little fellow.  I have been saving it to post and wish you all a very happy Easter season.  I remember his Aunt Ella in later years--and what I remember most about her was her rouge.

Rouge used to come in little round compacts with a little powder puff maybe the same size as a quarter or half dollar.  Aunt Ella used to rub the little puff in the rouge and make little reddish pink circles on each cheek.  I didn't know her really well, but that is what I remember about her.  

Thanks again to our lovely hostess for PFF - stop by http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/ and say hello to Beth and also check out the blogs posting cards.  Happy PFF to all - and Happy Easter.  (Click to enlarge)
