I was sooo excited two weeks ago.  I had found the 6th (and final) antique cupid postcard in a series published by PFB!  Granted, three of the six weren’t brilliant (gold trim).  I was still very happy to know what the image was on the last postcard to find.  It was of a cupid with fairy wings standing on the shoulders of another cupid with bird like angel wings trying to reach a clover on a small rock cliff.  So darling!  I have posted images of all six antique postcards for my blog’s readers.  Enjoy these treasured members of my personal postcard collection!

It’s always fun to learn an unimportant bit of trivia, remember it, and then drag it out at opportune times.

This week’s bit of trivia: 

Cupid’s power was supposedly greater than his mother’s (Venus), and included dominion over the dead in Hades.

It’s hard to believe such an angelic looking creature, associated with love, had such a power over something so dark and feared.
