Something new came my way. I happened upon an old scrapbook filled to the gills with old greeting cards. I haven't seen one of these in such good shape before. Most of the time the cards that I run across are loose and no longer in books. To my surprise this one is beautiful. So beautiful in fact that I hate to take it apart. My first thought was to take the cards out and file them away for crafting purposes. Now that I have my hands on it, I feel like it is such a treasure in its state.
Most of the cards are get well cards but there are greeting cards for each season as well. These are just a few. The book appears to have belonged to a young women from Missouri who had an extended hospital stay and or illness. Such care was taken to compile these. I am loving all the names and penmanship.
The original 39 cent sticker is on the front of the scrapbook. The cards have to come out as they are browning from the paper. I just hate to take it apart. The greetings and sentiment that were so beautifully penned are one of my favorite treasures.
Greetings for a Happy and Healthy New Year!
