Vintage Easter cards

Kelli is not doing Show & Tell today because of the Easter holiday, but I have been wanting to share images of my vintage Easter cards, so here they are. I have just a few from the 1950s-1960s.

This first one was sent to me and my siblings by a friend of our family when I was a child. I'm not a cat lover, but these little kittens in their Easter bonnets are sort of cute.

I love how the violets on this card have a three-dimensional effect.
Isn't this Easter bonnet pretty?
These last few are not actually Easter cards (to my knowledge) but they have a springtime look, so I wanted to share them. These are quite old, from the 1890s or so. I was fortunate to inherit a whole shoebox of these neat cards. Many of the others have Scripture verses on them, and I want to share some of these at a later date.

Here is a scene of crocuses. I think perhaps this shaped card was meant to be used as a fan.

This one, with its basket of flowers, is definitely fan-shaped.
And this little Victorian miss is wearing such a pretty spring outfit!
Hope you have enjoyed this look at some vintage Easter cards!
