Thanksgiving Day Card

Let us give thanks for the many wonderful vintage holiday postcards that have been hidden away in drawers, scrapbooks, boxes and other places that kept them safe for decades. Let us give thanks for the many talented artists and designers who made them. And for the copyright laws that allow us to play with these vintage pieces of art, celebrate the original artists (when known) and turn them into something new.

A Thanksgiving Wish is a vintage holiday postcard. It was made in the United States, perhaps in the 1930s. There is no indication who published the card other than the inventory or model number in the corner. This Thanksgiving Day card was published without a copyright notice, under American law, it’s now in the public domain.

It contains a poetic sentiment that is as appropriate today as it was all those years ago.

A Thanksgiving Wish

I wish you a day
of the best kind of pleasure,
With Home-love
and Friendship in
bountiful measure.

I thought I would share with you 2 versions of this Thanksgiving greeting. There’s the original scan of the postcard and one that I’ve done a bit of cosmetic work on the card for you. Even if you don’t want the entire original, perhaps, you could take the lovely fall scene. I love the window looking out onto beautifully orange colored fall leaves and an overflowing cornucopia. It would make a nice addition to your own card.
