Vintage Thanksgiving Cards

beautiful old Thanksgiving card
lovely lady Thanksgiving card

Little girl feeding turkey Thanksgiving card

Here are three sweet old Thanksgiving cards.  Aren't they quite different from those available today?  They have such a charm that I don't often see in the modern Thanksgiving card.  I have said it before and I will say it again ... sometimes I think I was just born in the wrong century!!!
Be sweet, may you always walk with angels ... Happy, happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Palaver from Pellie & Genghis Khat: November Atc swap

Palaver from Pellie & Genghis Khat: November Atc swap

November ATC Swap

Hi dear friends!!!  I am a member of  Blissfull ATC Swap, where we are designated swap partners each month and create cards from a particular theme.  This month was artist's choice.  My swap partner this month was Penny Plum of Palaver From Pellie & Genghis Khat.  This is such a lovely, lovely blog and Penny is more talented that I realized!
Beautiful ATC Penny made for me.  The lacey look around the tiny cameo is quilling.  It is so beautiful!
The title is SO fitting: Fantasy in Purple
I am in awe of the ATC I received from her in the mail today!  She made a special card just for me after looking at my blog, Angels In My Garden!!  It is purple and came encased in its own little box!  It is beyond beautiful and I love it, love it, love it!
I am posting the card for you all to see and posting the one I made for her.  It is such fun creating these tiny pieces or art.  I am very new and not as accomplished as I would like to be.  I have only made a few, but it has been very relaxing, peaceful somehow to get caught up in creating something for another!
The ATC I made for Penny, Title: Angel Eyes

Be sweet and I hope you like both the cards.  Perhaps you would like to join in the swap.  All are welcome.  The more, the merrier!!

When There's Nothing To Laugh About, Laugh Anyway!

Dancing Tree!

These two pictures are quite different from what I usually post, but we all need a good laugh now and then!  Doesn't that tree have the most unusual shape you ever saw?  I think it is hilarious!
Also, the poor deer hunter, oblivious to the big buck standing right next to him reminds me of my husband.  He always loved to hunt and fish, but he was a big sports fan as well.  I remember once he took a battery radio with him to the deer woods, where he sat quietly in his deer stand, radio volume turned ever so low and went fast asleep!!!  It was just too funny when he came home, sheepishly recounting his afternoon of "being one with nature".  He didn't even know who had won the game!
Be sweet and may angels walk by your side!  We are all connected in more ways than we know!!!

"Back In The Day" Vintage Ad Freebies

A little different from today's "personal" ads 
Anyone remember these prices?
With Thanksgiving approaching, this old ad is quite appropriate!

I have 3 old ads from "back in the day" for you!  Don't you just love looking at all the old magazine articles, newspapers, etc. and marvel at how different we live today?  True, it is so much more convenient, but gone are the days when mom was at home wiping her hands on an apron waiting for the kiddies to hurry home from  school, hurrying to gobble up the homemade snack they knew would be waiting on them.  I absolutely loved that time in my life.  It was the happiest I ever knew.  I DID wear an apron, make 3 meals a day from scratch.
My children's school had a Halloween Carnival with a supper in the old cafeteria included in the festivities.  Every year I prepared a huge pan of baked beans for the occasion.  I always remarked that I wondered how many beans I would have to bake to get all my kids through school!  Oh, the joy, the pride I felt!!!
As the holidays draw near, be sweet and may you always walk among angels!

A Trio Of Adorable Angel Images

Little angels with baby Jesus
Angel guarding children

Christmas Hymns

I have for you today 3 of the sweetest angel images .  They are such a joy to look at, the tiny angels overlooking baby Jesus in His manger, a couple of little lovelies singing hymns and the Guardian Angel with the little boy and girl are absolutely beautiful.  I have seen some gorgeous work on other blogs lately using graphics in various ways and I love what they are doing!!!  I hope you find these useful in your craft and art work.  If you use these please send a picture.  I would love to see it and post it for all to see.  Thanks to those of you who have become followers.  You are the reason I do this, I feel it is a shame to keep such glorious old images under wraps.  They should be shared freely with all.
Be sweet and may you always walk with angels!
