A favorite for sure. This challenge thing just gets better and better. I have that sweet cute and clever one but none of the other...yet. Sadly they come wrapped in plastic now. What a waist of talent. Love them stacked so wacky and all the goodies on the shelf. Keep them coming...smiles..Renee

I love this collection! It goes back to my childhood when my grandparents owned a flower and gift shop. She had a tall narrow chest to hold her cards, kinda like a file cabinet, but made for the greeting cards. I wish I could find more here, but the price is a little high when I do find them. I have 2 or 3 boxes, and boxes full of cards I can't part with!


I love this collection! Old graphics make my day. Don't you wish they would remake cards like these?
Such a happy collection!


What a fun collection to have!
How nice it must have been to receive a note or letter on that stationary.It's a shame that it's come down to e-mail and e-cards now.I love finding boxes with great graphics to use or to display too:-)
Thanks for sharing!


Wonderful collection! I collect these as well and have the very same pink rose box featured in the first picture :)


I go weak in the knees for the boxes with any type of flowers on them. Love love love!!!

love, love, all of your vintage stationery and paper goods. too cute for words. i'm especially enamored of those two little bluebirds sending each other 'a short line'.

Another favorite collection. I'm always on the lookout for stationary boxes. I only have 2 but they make me smile. Your graphics are always wonderful.

We have a lot in common - I love vintage cards, too. I do share them, but only to people I know will appreciate. I'm stingy that way!


I bought some old stationary from an auction of my great aunt's estate several years ago, and I too fell in love with the quaint boxes and beautiful designs. As I could say about many things, stationary just isn't made the way it used to be!

I was a bigtime letter writer when I was younger, so I LOVE this collection, Laurie! The boxes couldn't be sweeter, and they're little works of art all on their own!

I am a note-writer (I take after my mother) and *love* all this stationery, not to mention the boxes - gah! I always try to imagine the artists who came up with those sweet illustrations - that would have been one of my dream jobs. :-)

You're creeping up on Collection Number 100 ... I bet it's going to be a doozy!

Hi, Laurie! I had a couple of vintage collection ideas. What about New Year collections, vintage scissors, or vintage children's dishes? I know some have been incorporated with other collections.
I always love to see your collections. The boxes reminded me of some in my grandma's house.
Happy day to you!

I love old stationery, too. I even fall for the not-so-old-but-hilariously-tacky 1960s + 1970s stuff from the old Current Company in Colorado. Be on the lookout.
