A Vintage Bonanza

I've started to organize the box of vintage cards my sister-in-law gave me yesterday. There appears to be over at least 700 in all. It seems her mother saved every card given the family going back at least 50 years.
I really love the vintage Valentines. That's how I started my collection of vintage cards a few years back.

It used to be shower cards were always these mini type cards. I will make great use out of these wedding and baby shower cards.

I love these cards and would love to start my own collection. Instead I recently found some CD's that are full of hundreds of scans of cards like these that are copyright free. I might be using your idea to make some of my own with the CD's! Truly a wonderful idea!
