Vintage Flowers

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing two  more postcards from my collection.


They are both birthday greetings and
I thought the flowers were so pretty on these.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

I love the old-fashioned Hollyhock! Now there's a real flower for you! Puppet and I still make dolls from them: the unopened buds (the turbaned heads of the glamorous dancers dolls) added to the full blossoms (the fancy ballgowns)! We've been known to even put lipstick on their little faces!

Thanks for sharing these wonderful postcards!

These are so pretty!I loved the shadow box, too! I remember when they were all the rage in the '70s. I tried to leave a comment last night and couldn't, so I'm a little late with the shadowbox comment.

Oh..what would summer be without Holly Locks!!! (that is what we called them as children..lol)

Played with those flowers a many day when I was little.

Love these postcards. My hollyhocks are about a foot tall already and I can hardly wait to see them taller and in bloom. They're a great vintage flower. Love that bumblebee too!

I love hollyhocks. I remember them in my Great-Aunt's garden towering above me.
Vntage cards and other artworks have the best colors and themes!
Just a reminder, Vintage Alphabet is Monday! The letters are E and F
I'll have the Linky up tomorrow so I hope you can join in!
