Just look at these!
I found these French Victorian era postcards for April 1st, with hilarious & obscure meanings of ‘fish of April’ , and various happy sentiments with fish, a delightfully bizarre tradition.
…and simply had to post some of them, to herald in my new design.
What is so perfect about a theme of ladies in lace… and fish?
Well, in a day or so you will see, as I will present to you after a long arduous two months of knitting samples ~~ my new lace design!
Until then there’ll be a bit of splashing about as I reel this one in.
In closing, if there are any of you from France, or general historians of France, out there who can offer more explanation to the meaning of these old post cards, and the origin of the “fish of April”, I’d be grateful for a comment!
