I recently came across some vintage Easter postcards that I thought were a little less common.
The chicks in the baskets postcards were a tad battered and time worn, but with a few touch ups they’ve turned out quite nice.
I love Victorian art and I think the artists of this era really excelled with Easter…. who can resist little chicks!!
The postcards are in a printable 300 dpi and measure a little over 5” x 3”, making them perfect for use as cards, tags and in paper crafts.
There are two printables you can download:

Happy crafting friends!!

Thank you for such sweet chickie poos! Just love the old vintage look of artist’s/illustrators back then. I was born and raised in a town that had a calendar and greeting card company near my High School. It was no longer being used and later they tore it down. Artist’s (many of them women) could actually make a living working there. One female artist, Adelaide Hiebel made as much as $ 10,000 a painting back in the 1940’s!!! I wish I had some of the artwork from there. When they tore it down I did gather a lot of stones from the lot and put them around my flower beds. We have a lot of limestone buildings in our town although Gerlach Barklow Calendar Company later to be known as Rustcraft was mostly brick. There is company that published many books on our area’s cities and they have one just about the Gerlach Barklow Calendar Company. I love looking through those local history books. I never cared much for history but love local history. If you like history like this you can read more about Adelaide and her famous painting where Joliet’s own native that became Miss America at http://www.cityofjoliet.com/halloffame/artists/adelaidehiebel.htm

These are so adorable! thank you for sharing!
Thank you, love the cards!
Thanks so much for these. I have been printing out prints like this for Easter on Inkpress Media Matt Canvas, 8 12 x 11. They come out like little canvases. Punch two holes and put in some pretty ribbon and you can hang them over a doorknob, chairback or give them as gifts. Love them.
Thanks Kerryanne…they are just so sweet & charming…Love them
