Cards and Letters
This is a seriously random selection of cards received over the years. And, yes, I save cards.
There is a card my youngest daughter did in grade school, to let her grand mother know we had bought a new car. She was into photo shopping years before it came out.
The card with the flowers was a birthday card drawn by my mother in law. Someday I might do a post on her drawings, they're great. She also did the "Watch People" card. It was posted up on our gate when we lived in a very touristy town, and for sitting out there in all kinds of weather, I think it held up pretty well.
I have no idea what is up with that guy jumping over the babies, but I think it has something to do with "If you can survive this kid, your life will be blessed".
The "3 nudes" were interesting to receive in the mail. I'm sure it got passed around the post office before they delivered it.
And who doesn't love vintage Ken & Barbie? I still, to this day, try to get my eyeliner to look like hers. Don't make that face, I was never stupid enough to think I could have her body shape.
No words on the cat card, except that I love the colors and the way they altered their shapes somewhat.
Final thought: Hand made cards truly are the best. Sometimes they even beat out a gift.
