Freebie Friday, French postcard. The Language of Ribbons, "The Star of Love"

This interesting postcard with the title " The Star of Love" is a French Postcard from 1914, very interesting as it mentions the meaning of the ribbon colours used on flowers. Here is the link for a high resolution to this image, you are welcome to the other images you find too.

Sharing Sunday, Flower Holders, Uses

My husband's mother whose maiden name was Genevieve Doucet was French Canadian and had a grandmother from France she would often talk about. Gen was a lovely lady who I really admired in so many ways. She loved her family, writing poetry and was in the garden, gardening almost every day of her life. She also loved flower arranging and the top right photo shows all of her flower holders. 

Flower holders are very handy for other things as well, scissor holders as shown on the bottom left, photo holders and I thought I would show also a miniature use in the middle photo. The top left postcard is in Etsy, I've always thought the lady was so lovely and looks like an energetic gardener.

Thought I would show some of my lovely French sewing postcards that I hope to have up in Etsy with my other sewing images and small vintage scissor collection. Love the Eiffel tower scissors.

Cheers, Jean
