New Year RESOLUTIONS Postcards

Happy New Year!  This post focuses on  the New Year tradition of making Resolutions to improve our behavior or reach certain goals in the following year.  Like many positive promises we make to ourselves, our Resolutions are often more honored in the breach as the opening postcard makes clear.  A flat divided back postcard with red highlights and border, copyright 1911.  

These three whimsical snowpeople Resolution postcards are published by Whitney with nice embossing and divided backs.  The Resolutions are interesting - not always the usual! - and I especially like the way the illustrations break out beyond the borders of the designs.  


Now, here's a classic Resolution that friends can support!  Gold details added to a divided back postcard with light embossing. 

This unusual Resolution postcard provides a blank space for you to write your own Resolutions.

We close with a positive take on the New Year's Resolution - if at first you don't succeed...well, you know.  A vivid flat postcard postmarked 1914.  

PRICE ESTIMATES - New Year Resolution postcards are fun and varied, and the images in this post cost about $5 to about $15, with the Whitney snowpeople being the highest priced. These estimates are for postcards in excellent condition, and they are only estimates.
