With all my love, Dear xxx



Wandering around a recent vintage fair,

I suddenly came across a bag, which contained a pile of cards.

The label on the bag simply said, 'Bill and Hilda's cards'




Normally, I wouldn't have paid much attention, but, because my

grandparents names were Bill and Hilda, curiosity got the better of me!




Of course, these were not cards from my grandparents to one another because

included in the pile of cards was an envelope with an Axminster address.

 I think this address was, possibly, the said 'Bill's' address.




I do, however, love to look at old greetings cards; the designs and messages fascinate me.

What's more, many questions are raised in my mind.

Who were Bill and Hilda?

How did they meet? Where did they live?

What happened to them?

I will never know! And neither will you!





Anyway, here is a little part of Bill and Hilda.

Whoever they were, they were obviously quite devoted

 to one another.

They are beautiful. My mum and Dad were always very fussy about the sentiment inside the cards they sent to each other.

Beautiful cards from a time before emails and texts!
So sad that they were not kept in the family...it's not like they take up a lot of space...

Beautiful, I love the "my dear", it sounds so caring.
I keep all our cards, I guess when we've gone they are more likely to end up in the recycling than being found at a fair!
