A sweet little mailbox card

If you have read here much at all, you know that I love Christmas cards featuring designs of mailboxes.  Recently I was going through a box of old, used Christmas cards and came upon this very small card with a mailbox design.  Another one for my collection!

I've often said that I don't know why these cards speak to me as they do.  The landscape on this one is very similar to where I grew up, and I love that the mailbox is mounted upon a tree stump or maybe even a fence post.  I guess the main appeal for me is of a more innocent time; that people would send gift-wrapped parcels through the mail and they would arrive safely; that springs of holly or evergreen would be tucked in with packages, so simple, yet such beautiful enhancements.

And now, back to my real-life Christmas kitchen where fudge-making and cookie-baking are about to commence!

  1. I agree with everything you shared. I too love mailbox Christmas cards, and I would have to say it is exactly why you do. My parents still have this old type setting on the farm.
