Hello and Happy almost Easter! One of my most cherished possessions is a box full of my great grandmother’s postcards when she use to write her friends and sister. They are all dated from the early 1900’s. I can’t tell you how many times I have flipped through them. I love the graphics and stories they tell. I wanted to share a few of my Easter favorites with you to be able to print out and use as stationery or in your journals/ planners!
Seriously love vintage handkerchiefs! When I saw these a couple of weekends ago in Warrenton at the Trade Days for one dollar, I have to pick them up! How sweet are the embroidered flowers? Perfect for scanning in and using as ephemera in your journal or planner! I wanted to share and I hope you enjoy them too!
Don’t you just love vintage paper stationery? I love these ladies dressed in their long dresses, puffed sleeves and parasols. I have had these beauties for a while and recently found them again while I was unpacking, they were originally a set of boxed vintage cards. I think they will work perfectly for junk journals, and paper crafts. I wanted to share them as a free printable so you can enjoy them too!
February is right around the corner with all it’s pinks, reds, hearts and of course chocolate. Growing up I LOVED February for just this reason… Valentines Day. I can still see a visual of me sitting on the bus with my box of valentines ready to be handed out to my classmates. I also remember making valentine boxes out of shoeboxes and paper plates and hang for all your friends to fill with cards. Then I became a teenager and a young adult and experienced having a NON-romantic boyfriend during Valentines and I remember breaking up with this boyfriend because he did absolutely NOTHING for this special date meant for LOVE. I also remember working in an office environment feeling less love because everyone else in the office received a large bouquet of flowers and my desk sat blah with NO flowers, chocolate or love notes. Now that I’m older and wiser (wink, wink) I do not put so much emphases on receiving Valentines to make me feel important or loved. Now, I enjoy the hearts and all the pinks and reds for the fun and LOVE of it all. So in the midst of the season to spread love I wanted to share one of my girls “Love Letters” with you. Print on sticker sheet or cardstock and cut! ENJOY!! Happy February! Happy Hearts and Happy Valentines Day! ~ Rebecca Hoot
