★ I know that Easter Monday isn’t an official holiday in a lot of places, but it is here in the UK, so Happy Easter! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend with your friends and family! Because I didn’t really want to wait a full 365 days until next Easter to post this, I thought I’d take this last opportunity to show you another beautiful antique greetings card I just came across. This one dates from c.1910, and is beautifully hand-tinted with some delicate watercolours. Whoever did it has not only taken the time to colour the intricate designs on the eggs, they’ve even applied a hint of blush to her cheeks! Hand-colouring can look utterly awful when it’s badly done, but when it’s done well (as in this case) it creates such a pretty effect, doesn’t it?
