  9. Hi, Coralie,
    Beautiful flower covered card boxes!! These remind me of some of the boxes of cards I sold as a young teenager to make some spending money!! Thanks for sharing them and blessings to you!! Vicki

    Love your box tops....I have not seen many pretty old boxes...I am going to have to look more closely on our hunting jaunts ....

  11. I love vintage pictures - thank you for sharing these, they're lovely.
    Happy pink saturday Coralie- have a great week.

    ciao for now,
    Elena :)

  12. Such lovely vintage images, it seems that there was so much attention to detail in these renderings. I stopped by your recipe blog too. Your blogs are a walk down memory lane.

  13. You have some great old boxes with neat pictures. I think I may have some cards, but not boxes. Enjoyed your post.

  14. Coralie,
    What a BEAUTIFUL BLOG! I'm with you all the way on the adorable graphics they used on the old greeting card boxes. I have a few myself and always keep my eyes peeled for them. But they are not that easy to find.

    I'm off to visit your recipe blog!
    Great post!

  15. I too love to see old cards. My mother just last year asked me if I wanted her card collection. I said no, not really thinking about it at all. It got trashed, thrown away, gone forever. I will never forget that, sadly. Happy Pink Saturday to you, Char

  16. What fun images! I will try and stop by your recipe blog, too. Glad you've joined us for Pink Saturday, and I hope yours is happy...

  17. Hi Coralie! I love the graphics on these images. Perfect! Happy Pink Saturday!

  18. I have one of those boxes too....don't you just love them? I found mine while visiting some sweet antique shops outside Chicago. I sold all the cards but kept the box for storage.:) Happy Pink Saturday. ~ Lynn

  19. Oh,thank you for that dose of gorgeous graphics and color from the past. I need that on a semi-daily basis ;) Don't they just fill your eyes and heart? Happyness~

  20. I adore vintage graphics! What a great idea to collect vintage card boxes!

    Happy Pink Saturday

  28. I Love to collect vintage papers, cards and the like:)
    They are so sweet.
    Deb :)

  29. Lovely Pink Saturday post and sweet blog, too. Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground so even thought this isn't Saturday I really needed a boost!

    Sorry, I didn't get to see everyone yesterday. I had important business. My 11 year-old grandson was playing football and he wanted Mimi to go to the out-of-town-last-of-the-season-game. THEY WON AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED TEAM! WOO-HOO! 35 - 17☺

    Hope the coming week blesses you with sunshine, happiness and good friends.

  30. gorgeous box tops, everything was more beautiful back then, hope you had a wonderful day

  31. Coralie, your vintage box tops are gorgeous! I'd be tempted to put them into frames and hang them on the wall!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday!


  32. Such pretty box tops, I can imagine how lovely the cards are.

  33. Hello Coralie, I am late visiting as I just ran out of time yesterday. Thank you for visiting me. I have to tell you my sister's name is Caralie. My mother made up that name. I love your name.

    I also enjoyed the rose photos. I was surprised when you told me they were box covers. A lovely pink post.

    I will check out your recipe blog.

    Hugs, Jeanne
