Vintage Victorian Cards, French Perfume, Ribbons and a Milestone

Ms. Jillian was feeling a little better and did a little shopping. Vintage shopping, as I like to call it, which recently I did a post about how I am enjoying this more and more. But ooh la la I found a really neat treasure. I box of vintage French perfumes... the little teeny weeny size bottles in a gift box. I love it! Of course I bought it to resell, but now, it is hard to part with some of these items when I bring them home.

These Victorian calling cards are so neat. Makes me wonder how it must have been to hand out your cards. I suppose it is similar to the business cards of today.

Also a great find were these 1945 Horse Show ribbons in a creamy winter white. The left side of the ribbons read "Locust Grove Farm." I'll have to look that up and see if I can find any information on it.

And who doesn't like looking over Vintage Valentines and remember the joy of being a kid and handing these out at school? So cute!

Sorry for the blurry pictures on some of these. I just put Dear Bebe down for her morning nap and it usually doesn't last very I am not taking my time. Plus, my eyesight has been much worse lately. I've just made an appointment to have my eyes checked so hopefully I will have a new prescription pair of glasses instead of the "readers" from Costco. I think they are making my eyes worse.
And Dear Bebe hit a little milestone this weekend! She has been staring at me when I eat in front of of course, the things that make you go "hmmmm...." or maybe I'm just slow at this...ha! But I'm thinking she wants to eat some food and soon! So, we called the doctor and we started giving her the baby cereal already. My little Bebe is growing so fast! It is true what I've been hearing. I've got to enjoy every moment.
So I am celebrating her latest achievement today.
Hope you all have a great day today, whatever it is you're doing...despite cold temps here on the East Coast, USA, I am!

I am so happy you are feeling better today! Yay!
BeBe is growing like the weeds in my garden in summer and I can't wait to see her again!
Today is cold and damp and we are expecting a snow again tonight into tomorrow - UGH! I am going to make some stew and warm up the kitchen at the same time! HA!
I love you - talk soon.

I used to save all my Valentines' cards from my elementary school days... looks a lot like some of the ones you found. Cool stuff!

You found some really cool stuff. It would be hard to give them up. Thanks for the visiting you have done at my blog. Good luck with the solids for your little one.

Hi Jillian,

You found some great things! I would have a hard time parting with all the treasures you find..

So glad to hear Bebe is doing well and moving on the baby cereal :)

Stay warm..

Nice post, finding a good perfume is not a difficult job, but finding a perfume in antique bottle is quite difficult.
