General Washington is regarded with high veneration at our house. His face was the first face of a “public figure” Miss Baby recognized, a little after she turned two. So, today we at Ivory Spring would like to take the opportunity to remember the General’s birthday. I found an interesting read on setting the facts straight on Presidents’ Day vs. Washington’s Birthday here by former executive director of Mount Vernon, James C. Reese. [Personal footnote: I have for years appreciated Mr. Reese's work in preserving General Washington's legacy.]
This year I received the following note card from Mount Vernon Ladies Association.
What thrilled me was the little tidbit I found on the back of the card about how Americans used to exchange postcards to mark Washington’s birthday.
I thought to myself, “What a great idea!” Maybe we at Ivory Spring community could do something similar with quilted/or homemade postcards next year? What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by. I’ve got to run to get some work done for now… as Miss Baby and I will be making a homemade cherry pie,
as well as a Japanese Fruit Pie later today. Click here to find out why Japanese Fruit Pie.
Have a great weekend, DEAR Friends – and safe one too for my mid-western friends! I shall see you again next week.
