Learn Your Lessons Well

I just love this beautiful old postcard, I found it at an antique store for 50 cents. I just love that the flowers on the front are slightly raised and and textured. It’s beautiful, and so well preserved since it was written in 1908, which means it is over 100 years old. Learn your lessons well, is all it says. A great message, and what we are striving for at the moment. Sometimes it’s a little tricky to focus everybody in the right direction when there is a babe who is getting into everything ( it seems to take so much energy and focus away). Despite this, I am glad for her curiosity and we will continue to learn out lessons well. Hope you all have a great start to the week. What is your favourite subject now that we aren’t formally in school? Mine is definitely history. I’m not quite so sure how all of my teachers made it seem so boring.

  1. Gosh yes. I love history now. I think it would have helped at school if we’d studied British history! Something that was more relevant.

    Ah there is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous old postcard. It’s such a shame sometimes that we are so technologically advanced. I love a handwritten letter or postcard and often will just send hello’s out in the post. There is nothing nicer to get something lovely in the post rather than all yukky bills! Have a lovely day and week! xxx

    History without a doubt now that I am out of school. I love reading about the American Indians and the old West as well as all about British history. What a combination 🙂 Suggested reading: Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown, One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus, Mary Cole, Countess of Berkeley by Hope Costley-White….there are SO many more.

    Funnily enough, I absolutely hated needlework at school. Now I love it, and even did a PhD on needlework in literature and art!

    Aren’t those old postcards the sweetest? I love the 1 cent stamps! I actually made a flag book to hold my vintage postcard collection, I will try to find a picture. There are instructions on how to make one up on my blog if you want to try your own!

    Hmm…my favorite subject in school was, and still is, art!

    That postcard is stunning – as I might have mentioned before – you have the BEST thrift and antique shops near you! I don’t really have a favourite subject now – I just love learning about everything – I think I would make a much better student now than I ever was as a child!
    Have a lovely day x

    wht a great find. Imagine when someone else come upon it in another 100 years? The statement will still be relevant.
    My favorite subject? English, so I could have an excuse to read all day.
