More Vintage Thanksgiving Postcards

Hi Friends,

Each season I enjoy sharing with you

some of my favorite postcards. 

You can use these to create beautiful cards or decorate your Thanksgiving table.

These cards are illustrated by Ellen H. Clapsaddle.
 I wanted to share more beautiful examples of postcards from Artist

Ellen H. Clapsaddle (1865-1934)

   Ellen was an American illustrator/ commercial artist from New York,

 in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

  Her style is easily recognizable and greatly admired.

           She is known as the most prolific souvenir/postcard and greeting card artist of her era.

My favorites include the adorable children's faces that are in

most of the illustrations.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Wouldn't these make  beautiful

place cards on your Thanksgiving table or tucked in a Fall Display.

 Here is an example of a card I made.

 Here are more of my examples of her beautiful work.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

The theme was centered around food -

What delicious dish do you look forward to on Thanksgiving?

I love fresh Cranberry Relish!

Share your favorite with me in the comments.
