Vintage Large Birth Announcement Greetings Card

Hey folks!  Nothing like waiting six months to make a post.  I have no excuse.  GadgetSponge and my graphic design work has been taking up all my time.  I promise to try to do better.

So, here's the post for today.  It's a very attractive and large old birth announcement greeting card.

I might post this one in my Etsy store soon for anyone that wants to use the artwork for a project.  I did just list another birth announcement card but it is much smaller (HERE).

Thank you to any and all that still get my emails from PaperSponge and those just passing through!

Antique Funeral / Burial Photograph

This photo kind of grabbed me when I was sifting through items to post.  I sure wish there was a date on the back.   The sepia tone and the silver patina at the edges is just beautiful.  I also included some closeups of the structures in the far background of the photos.  Click on each to see a larger version!

1934 Christmas Card & Wishes from the Starkey Tribe

Hello all - as for who of you are still out there and didn't give up on PaperSponge.com.  I've had a long break from things here focusing on other things, including building GadgetSponge.com.

Alas, I have returned to post here and there with things that I find amusing and on paper.  Here we go!

The Starkey Tribe wishes heap good things for you from the Christmas of 1934.  

Looks like there's 3 children with 2 grandchildren for the grand folks.

I looked up the address but couldn't come up with a confirmed address to pinpoint their residence.
