Mother, mother, mother, pin some clothes on me

Happy New Year to everyone. I've only been back at work for 4 days but feel as though I need another holiday already. We've been researching a summer holiday to California over the past few days. Probably something like 1 week in the mountains, 1 week on the North California coast, 1 week in San Francisco ... I'm already getting excited and we haven't booked anything yet. Need to get those trans-Atlantic flights booked pretty soon though before the price increases even more. I did try and use my BA air miles but it seems those flights are long gone.

Anyway, back to the subject in hand, for this week's Postcard Friendship Friday I thought I'd share this vintage postcard that I picked up a few months ago. The postcard was published by Beagles and dates back to 1910. A curious use of the word pin here - I don't think I've ever come across it in this context before.

Mother, Mother, Mother, pin some clothes on me!

As always, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site, including some recent new additions



  1. But, Isn't nice to take a break away! I loved playing with paper dolls as a child....some of my happier moments!

  2. I'm not sure what blogger did, because I haven't changed anything, but so far for some great unexplained reason, those blogs I couldn't comment on before, like yours, now I can again!

  3. Often the airlines release more frequent flyer award flights as the time gets nearer, but you may not want to take that chance. That sounds like a wonderful trip. I'm excited for you.
