Show & Tell Friday for December 12
For show and tell today, I want to show a few more of the vintage Christmas cards from my collection.
I love this one with the snowy outdoor tree and the carolers singing around it. The flickering candle flames have such an old vintage look! What a welcoming look this open door has as the viewer peeks into the lighted room beyond. This patriotic red, white and blue card must surely have been produced in wartime. This card with its red mailbox is not as old as some of the others -- probably from the early 1960s -- but it is a favorite of mine. It reminds me of my childhood and how much fun it always was to bring in the mail during the Christmas season. This scene of the family dragging home the Christmas tree through a snowy village is such fun. I love the smoke curling from the village chimneys. Lastly for today, here is a cheery card featuring a December calendar. How glad I am that its date is not correct! To see what others have shared for Show & Tell this week, go visit visit There is No Place Like Home and check out the links. It’s so much fun to see what others have to share!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
