A Postcard a Day - Friday 6 Nov 2015 Friday Smiles

Hello peeps! 

It's Friday and I am linking up with Annie at a stitch in time for Friday Smiles. 

I like postcards with national costumes. I got sent this card from the US:
It is a photo from 1900 and shows a native American girl. 
But this is the one I like most:
This is (was) Sarah Winnemucca (1844-91), a native American rights activist. She gained fame as a translator and negotiator for the US army. She traveled extensively and lectured on behalf of her people and later established a school for native American children in Nevada. 
This is a card from a series of 'Women who dared'. I like women like that, don't you? This makes me smile!

This is a more modern card, it's more in the 'cutie' league:

She is from Southwest United States. Are you smiling?

And here is my 'funny' for this week. Unfortunately it has the F word in it, which I don't like,(and if you don't either, you can look away now). But otherwise it is quite funny:
Have a smiley Friday,




  1. Hi Lisca. Thanks for linking up've really got me chuckling. :-)
    Hope you have a great week.

  2. Oh those got me chuckling. I often use different codes and my friend texts back saying she had to google it! Though I do make them up I reckon!! Fab postcards. I used to collect them. Take care Zo xx

  3. Oh Lisca, you are naughty, but I like you! very funny. Love the postcards, gorgeous.
    Take care, Angela xXx

  4. Oh I love those two first cards. I still have a collection of postcards of national costume as well as dolls which I still pick up if I am somewhere new and I see one. they are not as easy to find nowadays.
    You are naughty, but I like you!!

  5. Hi Lisca,

    Nice postcards. I like the old looking ones. You had asked me what I enjoy about your blog and it is the postcards. I'm so glad you thought of collecting postcards from all over and share them with us here. I would love to send you some.

    I also like seeing photos of where people live; how they write their posts with their local slang, etc. I like the idea of not having a t.v. but I know I couldn't do without one.

    Love the text message funny. It's so true how abbreviations can totally change with age!!!

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!


  6. Happy Friday Lisca, those are gorgous postcards and a great story about Sarah - verybrave of her. As for the joke and codes...I'm still lost....son sent me ROFL - I understand LOL but this one is for hilarious - rolling on floor laughing. Have a wonderful weekend Robyn

  7. Lovely postcards again this week. Lisca. The top little girl looks so very solemn. I wonder whether they enjoyed wearing such fancy clothes. They didn't lend themselves to playing but I expect they were only worn on special occasions. Kate x
