Here is a group of lovely vintage wedding cards featuring wedding ring motifs.  These are from various companies, which are labeled under the card.  Although none of these are dated, they all came from the same scrapbook, which is dated 1953.  On the left inside of each card, the bride (I assume) wrote what the wedding gift was, most of these were money gifts.  I did notice through looking at the collection as a whole, the bride ended up with a lot of casserole dishes.  The scrapbook these cards are from was purchased using ebay.

Dolly Dingle athe the Party

This doll seems like it should be from October, with the witchy like costume, but is actually from November 1929 issue of the Pictorial Review.  This Dolly Dingle doll seems a little older then most as well.  She four outfits and one hat.  This set is missing a hat and a dog. The artist is Grace G Drayton.
