A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Favorite Finds...

I found some real beauties this past week.  If you enjoy old paper ephemera you will appreciate these.  I've seen many Victorian calling cards (used to announce a visitor in the more genteel days) - but these were the first I saw on black.  I love them!
Available on my eBay site
 The black ones are marked J. H. Bufford's Sons 1876!  This company seems to have done a lot of gorgeous chromolithographs for trade cards and more.  Don't those colors just pop?

These pastel cards are just as pretty in a whole different scheme...
Who doesn't love forget-me-nots?
Will be for sale at a later time - unless someone wants them now...
