Happy Birthday Darling Lizzie

Dear little Lizzie,
I have found this birthday card in with my mother's keepsakes from when I had my first birthday so I'd like to share it with you xxxx

(It's interesting how the black doll can have the power to shock these days but way back then all children had a "gollywog". They were very loved. You need to look at the card in the context of the times in which it was produced.)

Anyway, moving on, for all you Mums out there - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY - I'm looking forward to mine and Donna's, which will be squished into the early part of the day so that we can celebrate Elizabeth's birthday in the proper manner!

Later ......

What a great card (you're right about the gollywogs, I had one and loved it) and how fantastic that you kept it!

Well it was lovely yesterday morning - rained in the afternoon, but not before I'd done a bit of (very therapeutic) pottering around and re-potting plants in the garden.

Happy mothers day!
