Some of My Vintage Childhood Birthday Cards

June 20, 2013
It's my birthday today, so I am reminiscing with some of my old birthday cards.  The cards are sweet and innocent, so like the 1950's.

This one is a Forget Me Not from neighbors.

This one is a postcard from my church.

This one is a Fairfield from my Mom, Dad and brother.

This one is a Hallmark from my aunt, uncle and cousins.

This one is a Gibson from my Great Grandma.

This is the front and back of a Fairfield card from an aunt.

This is a Gibson with a pom pom tail from my Great Grandma.

No big plans for today, but I will be going for a visit to see my kids and grandkids this weekend!

Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene
