Unexpected surprise...vintage sewing cards!

A stop at my local mission thrift store produced an unexpected surprise. Just look at this darling box of vintage sewing cards! It's filled with alphabet letters, numbers and a few special graphics.


Doesn't she have the sweetest face?

Here are a few of my favorite cards.


A lovely unexpected find.
I think I just might need to frame a few of them.

You'll sew them before you frame them, won't you? :)

Lovely. Why don't they make these anymore? Or maybe they do, I haven't seen them.
