Nostalgia Day 26: Vintage Baby Announcements

I have a lot of old family cards.  

I have shared baby cards sent to my parents and I, when I was born.  Old valentines from my school days and some older valentines from my Grandma's family scrapbook.  

These baby announcements are also family cards.

 This birth announcement if marked only Made in USA.

A Quality Card Birth Announcement

 This is a very old postcard for "Baby".  This was not a birth announcement but was sent to my Grandma in 1909.





That's Day 26, only 5 more days to go!
Thanks for following along with my 31 Days of Nostalgia Series!

  6. Those cards are so cute! I love the little papoose one! I have my birth announcement somewhere at home. Times changed with my kids in the 70/80's and now my Grandson's is a photo announcement. Great job on this series. I know it's been a lot of work but I'm a huge fan!

    hugs, Linda

  7. I love them! I think it's funny though that some of my own cards my mom received, and the announcements look "vintage" now ;-)

  8. Love the cards! Why don't they make cards like that anymore? Or, am I being old-fashioned? LOL
