Teeny Tiny Vintage Cards ~

I adore most any type of vintage paper items and I just love the old cards. They sure don't make them like they used to anymore. I have a collection of teeny tiny gift cards and wanted to share some of them with you today.

Isn't this little birdie so cute along with her pink parasol and flowers~
Love this parasol trimmed with vintage lace as well~ Another adorable little bird ~
Lovely umbrella with daisies~
I want a dress and hat like this~
Just too cute~
Sweet fair maiden bringing gifts~
I have noticed a lot of the older cards have birds on them~
I hope you enjoyed my walk down memory lane. I often wonder what will become of my vintage paper ephemera when I am gone because I don't think my daughter is the least bit interested in it. Although I think my oldest granddaughter would love it! She is a *DETAIL* person like me and she is only 10 years old. (well on June 2nd she will be) She loves to make things out of paper just like I did when I was young and she is always drawing or doodling...hmm...I think I found my answer~ Blessings~

When my Mother passed away in 1996 I inherited all her personal belongings. In them I found probably several dozen vintage greeting cards. I have hoarded them since... In fact I made a cute collage of them without cutting them & framed them for my bedroom!!
Take Care!!
Love,
