A History in Love Letters #1

This post is a bit off-topic, but I went to the local car boot sale yesterday and found this gorgeous embroidered post card from a man to his wife.

It's so beautifully made, intricate and so much work has gone into it. It's dated December 13th 1916, obviously from a soldier to his wife.

The writing is hard to read but it says this: My dear wife, Just a few lines hoping you are still mine. With love, Will.
How lovely is that?! I really hope she was still his!

Although I've never been much of a collector, I'm going to be collecting these vintage love postcards and letters from different eras and I will post them here x
