Grandma's cards


Hello Friends! I am happy to share with you today some very special vintage cards. When my grandmother Opal passed away in 1984 I discovered her collection of cards. Apparently, she had saved every card she'd ever gotten.


I looked throught them in awe and knew even then that they were very special. I put them all in a shoebox marked: Grandma's cards. Later, of course, I realized how prized these vintage cards would become.

These are three from her collection. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.


Have a very Merry Saturday!

Twyla and Lindsey

When I finally leave this earth, my poor children are going to have a MOUNTAIN of greeting cards to go through as I have saved them for over 20 years! Of course, they aren't vintage yet....

Great collection and so glad you shared them with us.

How heart warming to see these. She is smiling down from heaven I'm sure. I have an old card album my mom saved of all the love notes and cards my dad sent her. I do the same thing from my kids and husband...how the greeting card lines have changed over the years. I'd take the vintage ones any day!
