Vintage Cards




So sweet...are the childhood cards that my dear mother saved for me. They are now considered vintage, as the "She's a Doll," baby announcement is 45 years old. Sweet girls in bonnets, cut out card shapes, a bunnny with a foofy 3D tail. Given by some relatives that are no longer with us. Cherished signatures of the past. A few years ago, I found this reproduction card holder. I think it does the trick. I love vintage ephemera, even if was not originally mine. There is always an unknown story behind it and besides, vintage cards are so sweet!

Your cards that your Mother saved for you are so very very lovely. I wonder if our kids will think there cards that are saved are really great, like the ones you have and that I had?
