House Of Cards

There are a LOT of vintage cards in my house. I'll take a vintage card over a new one, any day of the week. Recently, my friend Robbi gave me a BIG box of vintage cards she found at a yard sale. They're fabulous! So many different ones - like snowmen:
Cards with carriages:
Cards for a "blue Christmas"....
Poinsettia cards:
Snow-covered cottages:
Candle cards:
and open sleighs:
And churches for a Silent Night:
She gave me more things, too - vintage children's records, etc. - I'll probably show you some of the others another time. It was sort of a birthday present - even though we really don't exchange gifts any more. She gets away with it because she just "picks things up" for me that she "thinks I might like".
Are you kidding me?
I love them, Robbi - and I love you, too.
Thank you SO much!

I agree with you - I adore the vintage cards. I buy cards by the pack and sometimes there are hidden gems!

What a great idea to arrange these by theme, and what a visual feast they make!
