Sweet Old Ephemera

There is such a sweetness about old ephemera. This is an antique Easter card that has the sweetest sentiment. Click to enlarge to it - so cute! They just don't make things like they used to.
I also enjoy reading the notes or looking at the penmanship of the time. Now I wonder who "A True Friend" is.......
What special cards....

What a sweet sentiment! We don't often let our friends know our good wishes for them in such sweet terms do we? I wish you a wonderful week and all the joy that God can bless you with:>)

I agree with you Becky, there is nothing like the old cards. Sweet verses and sweet illustrations. I have a friend and she always sends "old cards" that were never used for all occassions. Great to receive. You have a wonderful week.

That is so sweet! I enjoy these old cards and love to read what people wrote in them. It's such a wonderful snapshot of the past. The art work on the front is so beautiful, too!

I agree, the old cards do have a finer prettier look to them... and the hand writing is different... maybe because of fountain pens???

that is sweet and I have to agree that things are just not made the way they used to be.
Enjoy your day.
