EASTER CARDS......ARE THEY FORGOTTEN?
When I was a little girl, my grandparents sent us each cards in the post for every special occasion. I loved getting my Easter Card.
They were very similiar to these. Always in spring pastel colours with cute bunnies or chicks and an adorable Easter message.
I remember seeing little Easter Postcards my great-grandmother had saved tucked away in her books.
They were like little pieces of art, each one painted in detail and telling an Easter story. I save all of my cards just like my grandmother and great-grandmother. They do accumulate but it is so nice to take them out and remember the lovely sentiment that they were given.
We gave our son an Easter Card every year and this year I have started the tradition with our little granddaughter. I am so happy that my daughter-in-law, like me, appreciates lovely cards. I know that she is saving them for our little darling so she will always have those memories and hopefully carry on the wonderful art of giving cards for all special occassions not just Birthdays.
