Two pretty vintage Christmas cards
A New Hampshire Attic, I recently came upon two pretty, classic vintage Christmas cards. Interestingly, both have titles.
The one you see here at the top of the post is titled "Christmas Memories". Although it is muted in color, it boasts a wealth of details!
The only real color is in the very center of the picture: a sweet little red house with yellow light spilling from every window and smoke rising from the chimney. There's also a little red bridge spanning the stream.
Other than these touches of color, the tints in this scene are very muted. There are evergreen trees, leafless bushes, and a clump of birch trees. There's a stream and a little waterfall. The full moon, with a ring around it, shines overhead.
The edge of the card is scalloped and features evergreen sprigs in gold. This scene also has touches of glitter.
The back of the card has a tiny, very similar scene complete with red house and bridge. So sweet!
This card is edged by a sweetly textured ruffle with touches of gold. Just a very pretty card!
Hope my readers enjoyed this vintage sweetness as much as I did!
