Fun Antique Paper Items
The other day the mail brought a wonderful surprise. What I thought was going to be a random assortment of incomplete puzzles, turned out to be so much more.
To my delight there were actually a dozen complete puzzles as well as some incompletes. I just love the old graphics.
No Disney-fied images to suit the younger crowd. Accurate and realistic renderings and a spelling lesson to boot.
Can you imagine the fun some young person had putting these together, more than a hundred years ago?
There was also a lovely lot of antique wedding, anniversary and shower cards. It always amazes me that these things are still around to be enjoyed and re-purposed.
