An unusual and lovely vintage card
Then outdoors, a full moon rises over a sleepy, snow-covered village. There's a ring around the moon, so snow is on the way. In fact, it appears to have begun already!
There are touches of glitter in the folds of the curtains, on the little Christmas tree, and on the snow that drifts on the windowpane. At the top, a greeting in a pretty vintage font declares, "It's Christmas".
Inside the card is a vignette depicting the same village, only seen more clearly. The church is prominent, and I love that. On the back of the card is the little Christmas tree again.
The message in the card reads: "Within your home good health, Around your hearth good cheer -- The jolliest kind of Christmas And the happiest New Year."
I love this card; it's most likely from the 1950s. Hope you've enjoyed seeing it too!
