A pretty mailbox themed card


Longtime readers know of my obsession with Christmas cards featuring mailboxes.  I recently came upon the one above in a sample book of cards from Sunshine Cards'  "Nationally Famous Artists Line".

I love the house in the distance, the stone walls and the falling snow,  not to mention the couple waving on the doorstep.  It is just a bit odd that the mailman is walking and has a mailbag, when this is clearly a rural route and appears to be out in the  middle of nowhere.  It really seems as if he should be driving a jeep!

Inside the card is this little quote:

It says: "Whatever else is lost with the years -- whatever else changes, Christmas remains -- a time of happy recollections -- a time for remembering treasured friends."

Isn't that lovely?  It reminds me of a beautiful poem, Let Us Keep Christmas, which I blogged about in 2014.  Read it and see if you agree.

  1. I love Christmas cards too Mrs T. It is always hard to toss them at the end of the holidays. But I have been making myself let go of things. I enjoy looking at your older cards that remind me of my childhood when we received so many pretty cards. Back then photo cards were unheard of. Blessings to you and Mr T in the new year.

  2. I think the mailman left his car at the end of the road and decided to walk down some lanes to enjoy the snow falling and the country scenery. I would also love to walk down those country lanes. Have a Happy New Year. big hugs Lynda Ruth
