Favorite Things

 I've been meaning to take pix of my collection of 
vintage playing cards, and now I've finally gotten started.
Here are two cute kitties,
my fav is the siamese below.

 These cute floral motif buildings are so cool!

 And I adore these turtles!
What great artwork!
Bye for now!

They are so cute!

Laurie said...

Thank you! :)

Oh! I also love my vintage playing card collection, altho it's not huge yet! If you ever want to trade a few for a few "new" ones, let me know! The kitties are wonderful. Do you keep your decks together or part them out for crafting and such? :OD

Laurie said...

I actually got these on ebay as a set(there are more to it which I will be showing). I just wanted them to use for inspiration, as I love this type of artwork! :)

My younger brother loved the pink floral motif building set when we were kids- this is actually a second deck that he was caught cheating with in a fun family game of Rummy when he was about 4 years old. He called them the "Pink Houses". Now he is in his 30's, and I would love to get my hands on a deck as a Christmas gift to him. Would you be willing to part with them??

Laurie said...

I'm sorry to say that I don't have the whole deck. I got these with an assortment of playing cards on ebay.
Have you looked on Ebay or Etsy for them? Good luck, I hope you find them!

Chris said...

Laurie- Good news- I used the jpg picture you had of the cards and had a deck custom made at Walgreen's! The Pink Houses live on,
Thanks for posting it!

Laurie said...

Chris, good idea! I'm glad it worked out! :)

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
