Sweet vintage card
Readers of my Christmas blog know that I love Christmas card scenes depicting mailboxes. I've said many times that the reason I love these scenes so much may just be that they picture a more innocent, trusting time. One could leave packages in and around the mailbox and they would be perfectly safe.
Whatever the reason, I appreciate these simple country scenes so much. And as I've been sorting through reams of old paper, I've found so many lovely cards, and probably a half-dozen depict mailbox scenes that are new to me. This particular card is a tiny size, probably 3 by 5 inches, and I like the more muted colors. The chickadee and bunny add a sweet touch. Adding sentimental value to this card is the fact that it was sent by my favorite great-aunt, Bessie.
If you love vintage, and I know many of you do, I'm sure this card will be of as much interest to you as it is to me!
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.
