Monday Fleas are back

Yippee! The weather has gotten warm enough
and the flea market on Mondays has opened.
I bought a box of old greeting cards. They are
so pretty. I sat and read them as most have a
note on them and they all belong to Blanche.
Blanche had cancer in 1953 and these are all
get-well cards sent to her. She was really loved!

This is my favorite with a piece of ribbon and a
3-D fold to it. I also found some cabinet cards
in excellent condition. They are destined for
collages.
No flea market in the country would be complete
without lunch at the Amish restaurant. So that is
where you can find me every Monday till the snow
flies again. What a great start to a week!

I love those vintage cards. I found some that all belonged to a teacher. She went from teacher, to wife, to mother. It was so fun to read through them. I'm sure you're having as much fun with Blanche's cards!

OMGosh I love those greeting cards. Score! I am always on the look out for those things and I never find a whole box and they always want an arm and a leg for one. Which I won't pay. Thanks for visiting my blog
