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.
