My favorite postcard of all time

I'm still looking! >:|

 

This is my favorite postcard of all time. I love the boy blooming out of the rose!!!!

 

Interesting story: I bought this postcard and the matching one at two different times years apart from one another, from two different people. They are dated from two different years. BUT... they are addressed to the SAME person and they are from the same person, isn't that CRAZY COINCIDENCE?!

 

Dated March 23, 1914. Postmarked March 24

Dear Ines-

I hope you are both real well we are all about like common (?) Elisabeth is getting along fine and growing so fast have been looking for some mail from you all but got none yet. I have only been out 3 times yet. Am getting along very well with the work, but get washing and irioning done. ?? I would long to see you all miss Father & Mother so much Kenneth is asleep now. Write me a letter soon. I don't have much chance to write now. - Sister Clara xxx

 

Check out Clara's other postcard to Ines for more news about Kenneth. Clara wrote very tiny and squeezed it onto the card into every possible write-able space, so it's difficult to read.
