Ladies Weighing Themselves, Can This be True?

Voiko tämä olla tottakaan?
Vaaka taitaa näyttää ihan omiaan!

loose translation from Finnish:

Can this be true?
The future seems to be so good!

2017

I have amazing girlfriends, but we NEVER get on the scale and weigh ourselves in front of each other.

This postcard is in honor of all those beautiful quilts you made and the ones yet to come!

I Saw You With Another Fellow and I Don't Care

I Don't Care
I saw you with another fellow, but I don't care,
You do not love me any more, but I don't care.
Perhaps you think you made me mad, but I don't care,
Some other girl will make me glad, so I don't care.

This postcard was sent from 'A Friend' to Miss Rebecca
Mean+ney in (I'm guessing) 1911.

I think if 'mr. friend' didn't care, he would have spent the time and money to buy the postcard and stamp and call her a meany.
