About Me

My photo
Deep South, United States
First I am a mother of two sons, Chad 35 and Ryan 32. Through these beautiful sons, I have been blessed with two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Kelli and Erin. As a result of these beautiful wives comes three beautiful grands, Connor first and the only one for fives years. Then, Kelli and Chad blessed me with another beautiful grandson, Cooper, who is now three. Ryan and Erin blessed me with my first granddaughter, Presley, and now Presley has brother, Harper, who is 2. My blog is really all about family. The reason I chose Magnolia Memories as my blog title is I am from Mississippi! I love Magnolia's. Memories is something that I make everyday. I still have my mother who will be 89 on her birthday in April. My life is centered around my beautiful family. Life is GOOD!

Penny Postcards




East Mississippi Insane Hospital and Grounds, Meridian



Weidmann's Restaurant, Since 1870, Meridian

What did your town look like according to Penny Postcards?

Check out your old stomping grounds during the times of the penny postcard. If you didn't know your town back when,you sure will
not know it now. Very Exciting for me...

The price was raised to 2 cents on January 1,1952.
Click on the state and then on the county name to see old penny postcards from that area...pretty neat.

The buildings are wonderful, but for some reason when I read that the first one was an "insane hospital" - I got an eery feeling!!!

This post did make me want to go look through my keepsake boxes to find how many different postcards I have!
