From the Vaults #3 and Happy Birthday!

My oldest niece's birthday this week. She will get a card (late - see yesterday's post) and a present (later, 'cause I can never get it together in time), but in the meantime, here's a bit of ancient history...



From some time in the mid-'90s. My niece has always been interested in science, which is pretty darned groovy. My mom must have taken her to the American Museum of Natural History and then sent me this card in a letter. How adorables, no?





And yes, I'm quite glad there was no internet for my relatives to post remnants of my childhood on when I was a young lady....

  1. Just received your card! And I actually have distinct memories of writing that particular postcard...although apparently I didn't quite get the point of writing in a straight line...

    Love the blog!

    1. Evidence exists, luckily your family is too disorganized to find it.
