Postcard Friendship Friday

One more Halloween postcard from the New York Public Library digital collection.

Let's see what she sees in the mirror this time!





"The maiden fair had a most romantic soul,
And wished her future husband to behold.
She gazed in the mirror and one glance took-
And beheld her brother kissing the cook.

Hallow'een Greeting."

You'll see a variety of postcards there.

Wishing you well, a JOY filled weekend, and a spooky, treat filled HALLOWEEN!

Those were the days, when kissing the cook was thought a bit risqué!

Cute poem! I just love that vintage, nostalgic look of the postcard.

I suppose if her brother has to kiss someone, a good cook is an excellent choice.

She should forget about the mirror thingie, and create her own visions. :)

Beautiful but also a bit mysterious card (at least to me). What's the pun? And I do agree with Muse Swings: her brother made an excellent choice. Happy PFF.
