Easter Cards from KatyDids Cards of Etsy

Life has been a little crazy so I haven't been active in Blogland! Everything is going extremely well. My house is scheduled for closing on May 20 and I am now training my replacement for work! Huge transitions. Very soon I will be living with 2 men after living by myself for 13 years. That will be very interesting!!! I'm really, really looking forward to full time self employment. :)

KatyDids Cards
Did I get the cutest Easter cards this year or what? I have always loved vintage prints and KatyDids Cards on Etsy does an amazing job with vintage images.
Some vintage prints can make you smile and/or "say what"! This photograph of a boy with a cigar and a chicken is available as a print that can be framed and hung. How fun would this be on the wall? It is certainly a conversation piece.

I absolutely love this card with a Parisienne chasing a Boston Terrier from the 1920s.

This gnome with the bee cracks me up. A bee putting on pants? There's a caterpillar sleeping in the cradle.

I guess fairies sometimes prefer to catch a ride rather than use their wings!

This is a perfect for card for a sick friend.

A Victorian Christmas is always beautiful. Personified birds are so sweet.

The prints can be put on cards, magnets, bookplates and prints. For the seamstress, these vintage prints can also be purchased on Fabric Blocks at KatyDids Fabrics. So visit KatyDids Cards for your next vintage print gift or a treat for yourself.

  17. Great collection and a great touch of vintage. The little boy with the cigar, hmm, what were our ancestors thinking? But then again, they didn't know what we know today. I wonder if our great, great grand children will look at pictures of small children with cell phones to their ears and wonder what we were thinking? Do we really know of the future danger to our "can't live without" electronics?

  18. Hi Val! I've been thinking of you and hoping all goes well with your move and transitioning into self-employment. So exciting! Those cards are so whimsical! I'm thinking either that boy is really small or the chicken is really huge;-)
    Have a wonderful Easter Monday and good luck with everything!!

  19. Congrat! I love the way you create posts! Thank you to share them with us!
    Your words are so ... inspiring! Thank you that you are! :-*
    You are my inspiration! Card are so funny :-)
