Vintage MOTHER Prints and Cards For VTT


Please make sure to visit Coloradolady, where Suzanne hosts VTT every week!

Whether you call her Mom, Mama, Maman, Mutter, or Ima, I think we can all agree that Mothers have the most important job in the world! This collection of Mother prints and cards started out by accident. I certainly didn't set out to collect these, but like alot of my collections, they just sorta happened. I had to have the one above because of the little red cottage! It's dated 1936.

This card was just too pretty to pass up, with the cute cottage and the birdhouse.

The sentiments on these are just so sweet. Click to enlarge any of the pictures, so that you can read them.

Another beautiful card, this one is dated 1933.

I love the poem on this one, and the picture of the mother and daughter is just gorgeous. All of these have been collected for under $5, and I suppose if I stumble across any more, I really should buy them, right? Because I don't think I can safely say that any of my collections are complete. Are yours?!?

I always like that style of picture when I see them at shows. I've never bought any because I wouldn't have a place to put them.

I have a collection of those but mine are about friendship. I also have about 4 of the Mother ones for sale in my space. Yours are so sweet and I'm glad I'm not the only one who collects these little treasures.

Those are great. I wish I had thought about my vintage mother's day cards for this week. Yours are such great examples of vintage art.

Lot's of my collections have started just like this. I enjoyed your cards, and to answer your question...No our collections are never complete!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Oh these are so sweet! Funny how these things speak to use and then a collection is born. These are so special to have out for Mother's Day (and every day).

Carol,
What a wonderful special collection of Mom tributes! Just beautiful! Mother's Day is always a biut sad for me as I lost my Mom way too early....but being a Mom makes it a bit bittersweet....:)

What an amazing collection. I've never seen anything quite like it. I love all of the cottages! I have a large number of vintage post cards, but I'll have to check to see if any of those are for Mother's Day.

There is just something so sweet about vintage cards. I love that they are Mother's Day cards. I'm sure they were sent with a little extra love. Thank you for sharing!

Stacey said...

Mother prints are so lovely. The majority of them seem to be circa 1935 plus or minus a few years. Very sweet and always a nice gift for both others and yourself.

Those are adorable, & your collection is definitely NOT complete! Cards certainly take up less space than some other collections after all!

Very cute collection. I often see them in antique stores and think the artwork is so charming. I think you were smart to start that collection.
