Vintage Christmas Cards Pt.2...Zetta's Cards!

Zetta's Cards!
My dear little sister Lisa just wrote me to remind me that she had tucked a couple of CDs in a package she had sent me.  On one of the discs was a collection of Christmas and other greeting cards that had belonged to Grandma Zetta.  I had forgotten all about it.  I was so excited to see how many adorable cards my sister had patiently scanned to send to me.  This illustrates another thing for which I am grateful...that friends and loved ones will forgive me for my carelessness and forgetfulness.  I don't mean to be inconsiderate, but I hope that when I catch myself I can make up for it somehow..



Thank you, Lisa, for these wonderful images!
I am posting just a few of my favorites.



This card says "For Jane."  Jane is my aunt..my father's only sibling.
I can't help it...this kitten is just so precious I could cry.

I am so thankful for the blessing of family.  My grandmother Zetta wasn't the sentimental type and yet she saved these cards.  I don't know who sent them, but they meant enough to her to keep them and I am so grateful she did.  I miss her so much today.

Such precious images Shirley!!! About my dropcloth ~ some have a more creamy undertone but this one seem to have a more grey look, like French linen ~ They're all a little different. And if they're not what you want you could always dye them....of dip them in coffee! I buy mine at Home Depot, Lowe's and Ace hardware :) Wishing you a wonderful week, hugs and love, Dawn
