vintage playing cards



Happy Monday!
Last week I bought some cute vintage Whitman Animal Rummy playing cards on Etsy. I couldn't pass them up. They were so perfect for the springtime! I have them displayed on this floral wood board that I made for my wedding, and I think they look so sweet on it. Maybe even framing them would be fun, too! 


The graphics are so beautiful, and I love the details of each animal!


That is such a pretty kitty, and look at her hat with roses! Gorgeous! 


Have you ever played Rummy? It looks fun! 


I love the sly "Robin Hood" fox! These are so funny! 



Now how sweet are these vintage baby duck playing cards! Those duckies are just too adorable!


So, who is ready for a game of cards?!!! 


Hope you have a wonderful start to the week dear friends! :)

  4. Oh so cute. :0) I kept looking at the rummy cards wondering why they looked so familiar. Then it dawned on me. I had a set very similar when I was a child only they were for "go fish" and could make pairs of two. Thank you for the sweet little memory that had been tucked away for so long. :0)
