An interesting mailbox card

Anyone who has visited my Christmas kitchen very much knows how much I enjoy vintage Christmas cards.  And Christmas cards, new or old, that feature images of mailboxes are some of my very favorites.

I guess that this card is from the 1970s or 1980s.  What a very different mailbox-themed card it is!  I acquired it when I put out an appeal for used cards to utilize in art projects at a Christian school, and have never seen another one like it.  What I find so interesting (in addition to the unusual style of the mailbox itself) is the flowers. Where do you suppose this is?  It's clearly Christmas time, going by the package wrapping, but it's somewhere flowers are blooming in December.  Hawaii?  Or Australia or New Zealand?  I'll probably never know!

Hope you've enjoyed this unusual card from my collection.


  1. You are right it must be in a softer climate area... not here in Canada for sure! Lovely wooden mailbox

  2. Haha, I love the mystery!

  3. It is mysterious, isn't it? Maybe someone will recognize the flowers and we can get an idea of where they grow.

  4. Yes, it certainly looks tropical. Reminds me of Christmases in the Western Pacific, everyone wearing shorts and sundresses.
