Tucked Away In A Box....
(When I first posted this,I can't believe I forgot to add what may be the sweetest ones! The ones with bluebirds - and pink roses, even! I'd sure love to have a pair of little birdie bookends like those shown. Had to add this picture as soon as I remembered)
Yesterday I got to digging around in a closet again, and found nearly 60 (!) more vintage cards tucked away in a box!! I love finding stuff like these shower cards, above, from 1944. (and, speaking of showers - we had a LOT of rain yesterday!) And these cute and colorful birthday cards, below, from 1950.
And these adorable baby gift and announcement cards from the 30's and 40's.
But this one is the oldest, and perhaps my favorite. It was tucked into a high school yearbook from the 1920's. I love the little Gypsy-costumed fortune teller girl.And it's mechanical! The little arrow spins, and it folds just above the sentiment, so that it can stand up. And how about her little cat helper?
Sometimes I can't believe I am still finding treasures in this house after we have lived here for over 8 years.
