From the back it looks as if the card is textured. That'd be hard to write on I would think.

A lot of the holiday cards are.  The ones that were used look as though the writer had trouble with it

A certain number of the holiday cards have glitter, and quite a few of the holiday cards have a shiny gold trim.  All the gold trim on this one is shiny.

I like when they have glitter

According to the Tuck & Sons note on the back, this is part of their Valentine Series.  She doesn't look very Valentiney to me.

''Let me twine blossoms 'round your head''.  ?  Being from 1907, something lost in time?

The ones written in pencil don't scan well:

Dear Little Friend

This is you pulling
your doll away
from Dimple

Love to all

Postmark: Atlantic City.  September 6, 1962.  5 PM.
          Thursday
Dear Mary,
  This is where we
will be each night for
rest of week.  Last night
was first show.  I have
a very good seat for all
the performances.
  Girls are all lovely and
very talented.  Will be
hard to pick the best.
  We have a suite of rooms
on side front of Hotel & look
outside windows down to
Million Dollar pier.
       Love, Mildred


Quite an interesting postcard.  Was Mildred a judge for some kind of beauty contest?  Perhaps the Miss America pageant?  Here is a similar postcard that isn't in my collection and that I posted last November: https://ellgab.com/index.php?topic=91.msg242514#msg242514

A reference to an orange blossoms bridal headpiece? Is this a marriage proposal?
Orange blossom is in many cultures a traditional feature of wedding ceremonies.

I thought Milly was a judge from what she wrote. The lights in this one are more tidy.
