Would you consider 1944 Vintage? My Mom, who saves EVERYTHING, gave me all the cards she and my Dad received when I was born. I had the best time looking through them and seeing who sent what. Then I cut out the images I thought I would like to keep. That's what is on my card today!!
The lace is some left over that my grandmother, mom, and I used to make my DS's Christening dress. It had 11 yards of lace which Gramma did, Mom put it together (34 little tucks) and I did all the embroidery. All my children used it, and my grands too! What is really neat is that this little dress looks just like the dress we made!!!
Thanks for this challenge, Julia, and thanks to you all for looking. If you have time, please check out my Blog.
