I have several scrapbooks containing old greeting cards such as this one above.  In her much younger years my mom saved every card and every note.   Her scrapbooks are beautifully done!   you could tell she preserved these memories very carefully because they meant the world to her.   I’d love to share these as well along with my pictures, since it’s fascinating to see what used to be given as a greeting card.   How would it be taken if you were given a card that contained the words ‘hot and bothered’ by your brother today?    I love how the cards are illustrated,  much more personal than the sarcastic cards that are made today.
