Good morning :)
Yesterday was my mom's birthday, so we went shopping and to lunch. One of our shopping stops was an antique marketplace. I found several vintage greeting cards and postcards and some fun old photos. These are my favorite things to hunt. :)
Some of these old postcards are so funny.
The wording on some of them is a little *odd* and sometimes a downer!
For example, this Valentine's Day postcard says...
Today, whatever may annoy you...
I hope this world holds naught but joy for you.
I just think it's funny they used the word "annoy" on the card, lol.
Love these old photographs, too.
It's fun to find photos where the people are acting silly, like this one with the 3 guys.
And since my mom was with me, she knew where the photo with the 2 ladies and little boy was taken!
It says "Congress Ave., Austin, TX" on it. My mom grew up in Austin and said that there used to be a photographer who would stand on Congress Avenue at lunchtime and take photos of people walking by. You had the option to purchase the photo. So cool to have one of these. :)
I also found a little paper church, the collectible kind with the hole in the back for a Christmas light. It's hard to tell, but it's covered with mica flakes. Really sweet.
Some of these photos and cards will definitely find their way into the vintage embellishment kits I'll be selling.
We are headed to my distant cousin's ranch this afternoon for fishing and a fish fry.
Hopefully I'll have some photos to share this week. :)
