Sweet Images

Hello everyone! We just had to share this precious picture of our babies.
Aren't they cute?!

We would like to thank everyone for your wonderful comments. It is so nice to know that you are enjoying our ideas.

One of the things we enjoy most is being able to share our collection of vintage images with you. This is a card that we found just this weekend and knew you'd love it as much as we did!

This little elf is on the inside of the card.

This one is on the back.

I love the style of this one. It's dated on the back, 1928.

As promised, we are excited to announce another giveaway!
Lindsey made this set of tags for one of you.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and we'll pick a winner Wednesday!

Have a wonderful day!
Twyla and Lindsey

Nan said...

Oh these little elves are so darling I am saving them and will think up something to use them for. I just adore all the vintage cute images you have in your collection.

Your dogs are so cute, are these bichons frisées? You could wake me up in the middle of the night for these kind of vintage cards; totally unfindable over here, thanks, thanks, thanks! Please put my name in the Christmas hat, I'm having my fingers crossed!

Your little dogs are just adorable. They look like two little lambs sitting there!
I love the vintage cards.

Dolly said...

i was just about to say they look just like little wooly lambs too!

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

Ha-ha! That Santa in the airplane is cute. I think I've seen him somewhere before. I'd love to win your tags, Lindsey!

Of course I love the elf card. I can tell that their little bodies are flocked-right?

I hope the puppies had their playing outside dreams come true! ♥

Stacey said...

Your cards are all so cute. You reminded me that cards used to have some sweet surprise on the back. Seems like they don't do that anymore.

I'm enjoying your Christmas!

Jenny S said...

Sometimes the images on the back of the cards are the best ones!!!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Elves abound! How sweet they are. I love seeing your vintage images, girls. Reminds me of my childhood. ;-)

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Oh...and those pups are the sweetest, too. Was it a squirrel or a loved one who caught their attention?

Bunny Rose Cottage said...

Your doggies are too cute for words!! I agree, they look like lambs! Awww!
I LOVE that elf card, sooo adorable! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
LOVE the tags too, they are perfect!

Oh Twyla...
I love these images. Cards just aren't what they used to be. They images were always so beautiful, and child like, alot of whimsey to them. You won't find that in Hallmark today.

I love the little elves faces. They are so precious. Bright colors and flocked too. Beautiful collection.

Love the pic of your pooches too. Aren't they just the sweetest things ever? Love them.

Please add my name to the drawing. I am so thrilled to have an opportunity. Lyndsey you did a beautiful job with these tags. They are just awesome.

Country hugs and much love...Sherry


I just can't keep up with you Two Crazy Crafters!! So many fun ideas!!! I need to learn the blanket stitch. I have made gift wrap also with brown wrapping paper and those elfs are too cute.
Love seeing each new post. And your boys are sweeter than the elfs!

You find the best treasures! These old cards are so special...and your babies look so cute! Maybe they're watching out for Santa! Lindsey, your tags are adorable!!! Hugs, xoxo

Lily's Pad and Petals... said...

Thanks for visiting and your blog is gorgeous. I'm just starting out. Are those Bishons? I have one (Tony) and 2 other "babies" and love to take their pictures from the back also.

Sherry said...

Your babies are so cute sitting there at the door!! Those elves are my favorite vintage thing about Christmas. I found a couple that I bought last year. I wish I had the one's my Grandma had!! Anyway, the tags are beautiful and I'd love to be entered for your give away!


Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

You share such pretty things with us! I find it odd that vintage things are not only prettier and simpler, but there is just a charm to them you don't find on anything current. Due to crazy crafters like you guys, hopefully we can keep these vintage pretties around and circulating for a long, long time!

parasols and maryjanes said...

Your blog has wonderful and varied posts. I always have such a good time here. Precious pups and vintage images--yummy combination to keep one company on a winter's evening.

A Stitch In Thyme said...

Forget the images... I love your pups!! How precious are they. Two little fuzzy cotton balls sitting by your front door to snuggle up when you walk in... tooo cute.

Okay images are cute too. But not nearly as cute as the pups. Hugs. Tammy

Emily Pickle said...

Celestial Charms said...

Love the images and the pink glitter on the tags. So pretty, as are the lovely cards. Thanks for sharing.

Celestial Charms said...

Oh, how could I have forgotten to say how adorable your little canine babies are. I see they sit in they do the head turning thing together, too? I love when dogs do that!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a wonderful photo of your cuddly dogs!

Your give away tags are lovely! I also love the cute little elf images on the vintage card..thanks so much!

Gerry said...

No matter how cute these vintage elves are - - - - your pair of white fluffy puppies grab all my attention.

Creative Breathing said...

Twyla and Lindsey, Monday's can never come soon enough to get to visit you both. It almost looks as though your two puppies are pink! It must just be the rosy colored glasses that come with your blog. Everything is sugar kissed here! E

Mary said...

Oh, yes! Your little fluffy, curly darling babies are utterly precious!! Please give them lovies and scratchies from me. I have a soft spot in my heart for little white fluffy dogs. My dearly beloved Spencer-boy (who's in Heaven now) was a fluffy, curly-haired little Jack Russell.
Congrats on being in Artful Blogging - I just love that magazine. And I love vintage greeting cards for their wondie graphics and colors.

Darling vintage card for the Holidays. There is a shop near where I live that has the greatest vintage cards for the holidays. I am consistently falling in love with them and buying lots.

Sweet sweet! Love the puppies!! They are adorable! Are they always together? It is so sweet when they have a friend. Mine were all only children for so long they tolerate each other. Thanks for the sweet images!
