Let's Hear It For Greeting Cards

My Mom loved greeting cards and I'm exactly like her. 

She used to spend hours looking for cards, addressing them, writing personal notes inside them and then sending them.

When she died, one of her possessions that I got was an aluminum card holder.

There are little circles that you tuck the cards into.

Honestly, I love that holder.

Every holiday, it goes onto the front hallway table.

Then I wait eagerly for cards to come in the mail.

If only a few arrive, never fear. 

I keep cards for years and add a few previously sent. 

Makes for a cheerful display every time.

Oh yes indeed . I do save greeting cards from year to year and add them to my card display just like you do. I love greeting cards, thank you cards and any holiday cards.

I send and receive lots of cards and keep only my super favorites. There are so many beauties and each one is meaningful; the person took the time to select it and mail it to me. Bless their heart.

I have four decades worth of cards stashed. I love rereading the personal messages.

How precious that you have your mom's card holder.

I wish that I had saved cards throughout the years. It would be lovely to see my grandmother and mother's handwriting again.

Wishing you a nice day.

Well, yes. I am one of those savers of things like greeting cards. It has been meaningful to me at times to be able to go back through them. There are memories associated with each one.

This is a sad question for me. I have kept my cards - from dear friends and family. But alas we are downsizing homes and I have had to let them go.

Your card holder looks so sweet, Susan, and how wonderful that it has such sweet memories since it belonged to your mom! Stay warm! I can't believe we got MORE snow today! Spring will be a most welcome sight for sure!
