This pretty post card from the 1900s shows a pot of flowers on a gilded background, all upon a green ombre card. Ombre is the style of fading from one shade to another, or one color to another. The sentiment is A Joyful Christmas.
The reverse of the card shows us that it was not mailed, but it was intended for Mrs Murray “addressed.” I’m not sure what that meant, exactly. The card was signed Kind remembrances Miss Alva Paugh.

It’s so mysterious that the message is written around the perimeter of the card, avoiding the slotted message section altogether. I’d love to know the story behind that:)
Possibly because of the heavily embossed surface. Writing on that with an old-fashioned pen nib would be difficult.
