My First Card from 1951

While clearing and tidying one of my drawers this week I found this card that I made in 1951 for my Mum. I was 4 1/2, so I think it was an achievement! It's been written on rough post-war paper using pencil and coloured pencils. I remember making the card and that my brother picked wild flowers from a bomb-site nearby, which we placed in a cup for Mum.


  1. This is just so lovely Val, what a lovely find! I'm amazed you were only 4 1/2.
    My five year old is pretty bright, but can only write his name and copy things, what a clever little girl you were for such a young age, amazing!

  2. Thanks Sue, I was happy that I found that card, and also all my old school reports and some etters I wrote as a little girl!

  3. oh val, it's so cute, well done in finding it, and it needs to be scrapped, so it doesn't get lost again (and the reports etc.)...

    it show how talented you were going to be, doing that at such a young's lovely, well done...
