Vintage Ephemera ~ Paper pretties from the past













 Vintage Greeting Cards

I love it when you find something wonderful at the flea market for little money.
I hit the jack pot when I found these vintage Greeting Cards!!  Some dating back to 1907.  So many.........  and only $20!
They are just gorgeous!  
I LOVE vintage graphics!  These are just perfect for my vintage inspired paper crafts!  I will scan the originals and use the copies for my work.
I also found the cutest old candy box.  It's "foiled" with a pretty satin bow and flowers.  It still has the original paper inside!  Too cute!  I used it to store the cards.
How perfect is that?

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
Elizabeth

I love these beautiful Birthday Wishes from yesteryear! I always try to keep a few on hand to remind me to wish family and friends a most joyous celebration.
You hit the jackpot!
