A New Love - Vintage Wrapping Paper

I did quit a bit of vintage shopping this weekend and made a rather large and wacky purchase that I will share in a future post.  For today I will show you my new love - vintage wrapping paper.
 How have I not noticed this before, I ask you??  I found this big bundle of wrapping paper for a little money at the VofA this morning.  It caught my eye because of some more modern rose-patterned paper but look what I found when I got home and opened it up!
 Toy soldiers and duckies and lambs and piggies and elephants and a jack in the box - OH. MY!
Beautiful brides. 
 Wedding bells ringing out promises of a rosy future!
 Love birds.
Sweet bouncing babies.
I love these graphics and the colors.  Vintage wrapping paper is on the "look for" list from this day forward!  I am planning to hook up with a new blog I stumbled on the other day.  It is called Thrift Share Monday at Apron Thrift Girl and I will add the link as soon as she has the post up.
Stay tuned for the wacky purchase of the weekend.  I think I lost my mind.  We'll see what all of you think - LOL!

That is some awesome paper! In my thrifting and antiquing I don't remember seeing wrapping paper but then I guess I wasn't looking for it either! I am really curious about the wacky purchase!! :)
