Friday Show and Tell

Today's Show and Tell isn't what I had planned on. I had planned on showing you a skirt I made from a vintage 1950's pattern with vintage fabric. However our hurricane like weather isn't condusive to wearing a skirt so it will have to wait.
So, instead I am going to show you some of the cutest cards I have even seen that I bought at an estate sale a while back. All of these cards date from the 1950's. I love the vivid colors of the cards. My favorite in this set is the birthday card in the top left corner, the one with the vanity.
Isn't she just adorable?

I love the soft pastel colors of these cards


A couple of these were very "racy" for now, much less the 1950's!

Also in the package of cards were these little valentines that are so similar to what I had when I was little that I am thinking they are from the late 1960's to early 1970's!
I hope you have enjoyed my latest vintage card craze! I am off to yet another estate sale during my lunch hour today. I can hardly wait!

Blessings

Linda

Wow! You don't see many cards like that around-people just didn't save their greeting cards. My brother ran across a few my grandfather had sent our grandmom-just like yours.
Thanks for sharing.
I appreciate you stopping by my blog too.
