Vintage Thingies Thursday – Vintage me!

I turned 50 yesterday, so I think that qualifies me to be the subject of this weeks Vintage Thingies Thursday! So what better way to start than to revisit my baby cards. My parents kept all the cards they received when I was born. I just love the cute graphics on them! Most of them are made of paper rather than the heavier card that goes into today’s greeting cards, which gives them that lovely vintage feeling.

 The first one in this group has a little pink padded satin cloud.

 And here’s a pic of me about 48 years ago:

When I got home from work yesterday the florist had delivered a beautiful bunch of flowers. There was no card, so I was left wondering all evening who they were from. Turns out my best friend (who turned 50 last year) sent them – thankyou Glynnis – they’re so beautiful:
