A sweet little vintage note card

This tiny note card is the sweetest thing.  It is of thin paper, almost parchment-like.  If you look closely at my scan of it, you can almost see the handwriting showing through it.  It was a little note to my parents from my father's Auntie Marge.  She was reminding them that they had agreed not to exchange Christmas gifts with her that year.  I'm guessing that may have been her first year as a widow, but I am not sure.  I'm also guessing that this tiny note was enclosed in her Christmas card to them, most likely sent early in the season so she would be sure they didn't plan on getting her a gift.  People were much more polite and thoughtful in those days, it seems to me.

This dear little card has lovely poinsettias and evergreen sprigs, and the silver filigree is embossed, as are the tiny snowflakes and a few of the fir sprigs.  So pretty!  Hope you have enjoyed this little bit of vintage Christmas memorabilia.


  1. I bought a poinsettia bouquet this week to bring at the office for Christmas :)

    1. Nice idea, Lucie! That is really planning ahead! (I noticed in Walmart last night they are putting up the Christmas trees...)
