Here again at last...

Oh, how much I wanted to post in each of my blogs regularly throughout the Christmas season!! I love Christmas so dearly, and want to share my thoughts about it with others. But this season, for whatever reason, there just hasn't been the time to post the way I wanted to.

I've been in the Christmas kitchen a lot, and hope to post about my adventures there after the big day. But for the next few days, I'm going to post some scans of my favorite vintage Christmas cards from my collection. I will post a different card on each blog, hoping that these will inspire and delight my readers as Christmas draws ever nearer.

I love, love, love this card. It just evokes Christmas in days gone by, with all of the cards and packages piled on the mailboxes, ready to go off to family and friends. This is how it was in my childhood. How I wish my grandchildren could know this simpler way of life! I try to convey it to them the best that I can.

Hope someone else enjoys this card today!


  1. I have enjoyed it with you! I love the items all piled on the mailboxes, too. I love Christmas cards & just don't think I could ever give up the tradition.
    Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Bless you, Mary Ann! I had just been having sort of a blue moment, and had asked the Lord to encourage me in some way (as I sat at the sewing machine working on a last-minute gift). Within moments, I had a call from my hubby -- and now your lovely note!

    I am glad you enjoyed the card as much as I do. I plan to post a different one on each blog for the next few days -- and who knows, maybe up until New Year's!

    Thanks again!
    God bless,

    And a very Merry Christmas to you, too!
