Leap Year Day, AnchoredScraps February Recap 2020, & Vintage Leap Year Postcards

On this last Saturday in February, it is Leap Year Day, AnchoredScraps February Recap 2020 Blogging Daily & Vintage Leap Year Postcards.

First, finding these Vintage Leap Year Postcards from the 1910s got me looking behind the tradition for them. 

“Back in 1288, the Scots passed a law that allowed a woman to propose marriage to the man of their dreams in a leap year, with the law also stating that any man who declined the proposal on this day would have to pay a fine.”

Over at the Etsy Shop KaysVintageEphemera, there is only the one left of the five. It is called “Ladies in waiting” for $12.75. This one is showing 1912 on the design.

“Leap Year Postcards, a vintage card series by Fred Spurgin featuring ladies waiting for a husband and marriage proposals, choose your postcard…

And with today being Leap Year, it is my second time to be blogging on Leap Year Day!  

With having the new layout of AnchoredScraps debuting earlier this week, it means I’m displaying the monthly blog recap listing differently today.  I hope you enjoy the new format.

Before closing, Thank You again for all of the well wishes this month with realizing the Milestone of my Five Year Anniversary blogging daily! Today is #1830 daily blog post.

Here’s to enjoying this “extra” day today! 

Anchors Aweigh,
