Postcard Friendship Friday

October arrives bringing cool weather and Halloween.

I visited the New York Public Library for this postcard.




A Happy Hallowe'en
He is your fate
Whose face you've seen
 in the mirrow's face
On Hallowe'en.

Postcard Friendship Friday is hosted by the lovely Beth.
On your visit you'll see a variety of  postcards: funny, serious, old and new.
Enjoy!

Wishing you well and a JOY filled weekend!

She's smiling because she knows he can't be a vampire since his reflection shows up.

Oh this is really quite creapy, if you think of it. Great card. Thanks for stopping by.

Wonderful card...and an interesting Halloween mirror tradition that I'd never heard of either. Love the bobbing apples decorating this card! Happy PFF!

Ah! Those Victorians - they've turned even Halloween into a romantic opportunity!

Joy said...

She looks happy with the apparition. A girl of steady nerves, no sign of Victorian vapours.

I see we are celebrating Halloween already, And why not?! I do like the spelling of the word mirrow and the curve of that beautiful woman's neck. sweet!

That's the halloween spirit. Keep smiling. I like the detail of the apples. They seem to comment. Happy PFF.

I love those old superstitions.

My grandmother used to say, over a dropped spoon, "A woman's coming to visit!"

What an interesting postcard! I've never hear that legend before!

Linda said...

That is one spooky card, the way it invokes fate, although I know it was meant to be more romantic. Very unusual.

I love this card! I think I have some vague memories of that tradition. I do remember that we used to try to peel apples with a single continuous line of peel. Then the idea was to throw it over your shoulder and it would form the initial or name of your future husband. I forgot to take note of the results. :)
