When I Was Born

It's my birthday on Friday so I thought I'd share a few of these old cards that were sent to my parents and I  when I was born.    I like to pin old cards on Pinterest, so I thought someone else might like to pin one or two of these.


 













There were also a couple of first birthday cards in with them.  I like the second one, it has a feather!!



And, here I am on that very first birthday - and a picture taken of me last summer - still with that same round face!!!


Linking up my vintage cards with Dawn over at We Call it Junkin

So sweet Jill! You were so cute! I have some old cards that were sent to my parents when I was born too! I need to post them!!

It's kind of a shame that greeting cards don't have the same level of...artistic craftsmanship?...that they used to. There was always so much detail in the illustrations. All of it in misty pastels, too!
Mmm. Birthday cake.

Happy Birthday sweet lady! I hope you're still celebrating. You look just as cute as you did as a little girl. Love these cards! One looks like one I have. I'll have to drag out my baby book and take some photos. Have a happy week my friend!

I love these old (vintage) baby card, Jill. I have mine too and they are very similar. The drawings are so sweet on them. Sweet photos of you then and now too. :)

Happy Birthday! I love those old cards and was lucky enough to have a mother who scrapbooked them way back when. In fact, two of the cards in my book are exactly like the first and fourth ones that you have posted. I'm going to pin yours to my Vintage board on Pinterest if you don't mind.

Happy Birthday, Jill! How amazing that you have these cards. I need to do some digging because my dad gave me a huge container full of childhood photos of myself the other day and I think that there may be some cards mixed in.

Aw, Jill, I just love all these cards! Esp the one with the baby scale. Bob, "vegomatic", I agree with what he said, the artistry is just so wonderful and you don't see that nowadays. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, friend! Thank you so much for joining the History & Home link party this week! -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com
