Easter Cards from Antique Postcards

A couple last cards I'll have for sale at Spring City Vintage in Colfax this Saturday.  Two Easter cards made with pieces from antique postcards. Surprisingly, Easter used to be a big holiday for sending cards. Now, not so much. We'll see if I have any interested buyers.

Collage Card from Antique Postcards

Another card pieced together from antique postcards. This time I used the back of a card so you could see the postmark--1911!!! I added some pieced cut from other postcards and a Happy Birthday sentiment also from an old postcard. This is another card I'll be putting up for sale at Spring City Vintage in Colfax, which is open this Saturday, March 14.

Everyday Eats and Treats Blog!

(Second Post Today--Please scroll down to see my first post.)

A brand new blog for everyone to check out: Everyday Eats and Treats by Heather Torpy. Heather is my niece and although she's a new blogger, she's been writing freelance columns periodically for the Des Moines Register for several years. She mainly focuses on food and craft ideas anyone can make, with little training or special supplies. So far, Everyday Eats and Treats only includes links to some of her recent Des Moines Register articles, but I look for it to increase in content soon. Take a look and give her a comment to welcome her to the blogging world.

If for some reason my links above don't work for you, Heather's blog can be found at everydayeatsandtreats.blogspot.com

More Cards from Antique Postcards

I made a few more cards to sell in Spring City Vintage in Colfax from antique postcards and other ephemera.  Here's a closer look:

I scanned this old snapshot into my computer and printed it larger for the card. It really scanned well. I'm sure I'll be using this "hula girl" often.

I scanned and enlarged this photo too, but it came from an antique postcard. It makes a great friendship card.
