best wishes


My mom gave me these adorable vintage cards, and they are just so lovely! They were unused and in such good condition! Oh, I am sure you noticed the same hankie from yesterday's post, but I'm in love with it! Does anyone know how to make these? I would love to figure it out, and make them in different colors!! 


 Okay, back to the cards! ;) 
The farmer and his wife is my favorite!! This is my dream to live in an old farmhouse with my husband and many animals, like goats, chickens, kitties, and maybe even a sweet cow! You never know, this could happen very soon for me!!  


I love the tea kettle!!


 Are these girls so precious!! I love the soft colors, and the pretty flowers!


I am not sure what era they are from, but on the back it says "A Sunshine Card" made in U.S.A!! So much fun!! Do you have any special vintage cards? 


And to end, here are some pretty vintage doilies I purchased on Etsy, and are going to be used on the goodies I am making for my shoppe!! I really love the small star ones!! 

Hope you are having a beautiful Easter week!

  11. Pretty cards, I love old vintage cards. I pick them up quite often...I even like the ones that have been used, it's just kinda neat when they are nice and old and they have names and dates in them. Your hanky is pretty and I'd like to know how to make them as well :) Have a wonderful Thursday Heather!

  12. Beautiful cards.
    They just don't make 'em like they used to , do they ?!

    One time at a summer yard sale, I bought an entire box of vintage cards.. they were beautiful. Some had glitter on them, or ribbon.
    I just love and appreciate stuff like that.

    Thanks for sharing.

  14. Heather-
    It seems we have the same dream! Wouldn't that be so great? To have an old farm house and some animals?? I guess I'd need the cute husband too...to do some of the chores while I'm out at the fleamarket or thrift store. A girl needs to maintain her vintage card collection right?
    Cute Post!
