A Box Of Goodies
I spent a fun day poking around an antiques fair with with some friends and we all came up with a nice little collection of vintage holiday plunder.
My happy find of the day was a basket full of 50's and 60's Christmas cards, all at barg-o-rama prices, no less. Three for a buck!
I'll be posting one each day, until I get to the bottom of the stack.
I always keep my eye out for kinetic cards that actually DO something and really love anything to do with paper engineering.
There it was!
A vintage mechanical paper card with a PUPPY on it?
A Puppy sportin' a RED BOW?
I just about fell over.
This little guy is going to my sis, the dog aficionado - YOU CAN STOP READING RIGHT THERE, MISSY! - with home baked, star shaped doggie treats.
(And yes, I'll be punching some holes in the side, just to ease her PETA-lovin' mind.)
When my dear husband read the card, he had other gift ideas and thought maybe a pooper scooper would better accompany the sentiment.
