PINK SATURDAY - good to be back!

Its been a long time since I have been on here and I have missed all the wonderful blogs that post, so very happy to join in the fun again for tomorrow - July 9th.

Stopped by 1/2 Price Books and found this book that is full of COPYRIGHT FREE vintage images: so great that the cover is PINK!

 a few pages showing what is offered inside the book - wonderful images!!!

 these will definitely be used on ATC's

Last week I found a shoebox full of vintage greeting cards at a local antique mall and this adorable little girl was in the mix - you can't really tell but is has glitter around the door and on her sweet pink dress!

this is another card from the box - the other pink is covered in glitter

this was at the bottom of the box, I HAD to post this because of the tiny little pink ribbon at the top of this graduation announcement from 1926 !! It is in mint condition!

That's all for today - wanted to get my "feet wet", now it is time for me to go view all the other great blogs!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Robin! Thanks for visiting at The Writer's Reverie - thought I'd drop by to say "hi" - and gush over your finds! That 1926 piece is a find - I love old things. Your greeting cards are nice, too. I have four bins full of my grandmother's cards - she kept everyone - dating back to the 1920's. I'd love to do something with them - but my aunt wants me to just "keep" them. Ya!

Wow, what fab finds! The vintage illustrations are wonderful.

Susie Jefferson said...

What a brilliant find - I'm so jealous! And I love the girly card as well. You have a great 'eye' (and a lot of luck, obviously - I rarely come across things like this).

This week, my contribution is a desktop screensaver calendar. Happy Pink Saturday from the UK!
