Weekend Finds-Vintage Greeting Cards And More

I went to my favorite antique store on Friday, and I came away with a ton of vintage greeting cards, 11/$1! Feel free to use the images. It's funny how after reading other blogs for a while, certain things remind you of that person.
Every time I see kitties, I think of Holly!

These two make me think of Twyla and Lindsey!

These little yarn girls also make me think of Twyla, who is a whiz with yarn!

This card makes me think of Elizabeth. I know she would make an amazingly cute tag with this card!

The card on the right makes me immediately think of Coralie!

The card on the left makes me think of Susie's beautiful garden in the summer! The one on the right reminds me of Jacqueline, who always indulges her inner little girl!

The card on the left makes me think of Sue, who always has pretty things to share on her blog.

And this squirrel? This squirrel just reminds me of the rotten little squirrels that defy gravity to eat all of the expensive food out of the birdfeeders!

I also found these two old Napco plates. I think I'll buy just about anything with a parakeet on it!

Lots of old wrapping paper for 25 cents.

Oh, that poor donkey!

I LOVE this bridal shower one. Poor girl, she has no idea what she's getting herself into!

Creepy clown paper.

Just plain lovely. I think I want to somehow use this on the inside of one of my bookcases.

And finally, two old Easter picks. This is what I went to the antique store for in the first place, because I have very little vintage Easter things. I must be a little early, because there was nothing Eastery except for these. I guess I can't complain though, because I did walk away with 55 vintage greeting cards....

"Creepy clown paper" Ha-ha!

Well, so nice to be THOUGHT of, Carol!! Yes, me and kittens and bunnys go waaaaaay back! You really scored on those cards, girl! It's amazing to me how cheap we can find them because just one new card can cost 3-4 bucks! ♥

Oh.....I just love all of those vintage greeting cards...and what a fabulous price.
Have a great week!

It dosen't matter why I go to the thrift store, I always come away with more. Great finds.

Jacqueline said...

I really want you to know, your blog just lives in my heart. It's amazing how we are making these amazing friends in blogland. I feel like we like all the same things. I even like the movie Dirty Dancing just like you and I LOVE Pretty Women. That bunny with the wish bone...how cute is that...that's gets my mind twirling. I love your finds. We'd be in real trouble hitting thrift shops together. We may even have a girlfriend fight over the goodies!
I'm going to Portland Oregon next weekend for the antique show and yesterday I went to the doll museum. Wait till I show you the dolls...about 200 pictures...HA!
Yes, U may want to take the curlers out of your hair before you board the Greyhound!

Hey, how is that clown paper creepy? It's adorable. Fortunately I don't suffer from coulrophobia, though, or I'd never had made it through working with Ronald McDonald!

Linda said...

The bridal shower wrap is my favorite, too. Great deals!

I've been on the lookout for Easter decor, as well. Seems like I see it all year, but now that I'm looking for it, there is none ;)

Diane said...

Wow you sure scored and the prices are unbeatable, I just know you are going to find some uses for everything. Hugs, Diane

Carey said...

Hi Carol,
I so love the wrapping paper. I can't believe the price. Great deal. Do you know what you are going to do with all your lovely finds? I love the new look of your blog. Thanks for stating you will join my blog party.This will be my first so I am a little apprehensive about it.

Wonderful finds, all so cute! Except maybe those clowns ;)

Love how you're all decorated for St. Patrick's Day!

Great finds!

Yum-a-licious!!!! What a great treasure trove find! I have those yarn girls and have them on my inspiration board posted somewhere on my blog. You got some great stuff, and I'm trying not to be too jealous.
