I had very good intentions to share Christmas from around the house, but it's not going to happen, as I've been baking all day so instead I'm going to share a few of my vintage Christmas postcards - I was collecting these a few years ago, postcards illustrated by Ellen Clapsaddle were always ones that I was on the lookout for, her work is beautiful.. And, haven't they held up well??
Another Clapsaddle - of course, I am partial to redheads!
Wouldn't it be nice to have such beautiful cards to send at Christmas now?
This card was sent to Harold - from Aunt Mary
This card is an undivided back postcard which is older than others - it called for one cent in postage. This card was written to Gladys Taylor, from Willie Moulds - wonder if they were sweethearts?
Isn't this a bright eyed cutie? This card was postmarked, 1916
I have a couple that are this style - sweet..
It was hard to select only a few, I love them all..
This one is a little different, a real photograph but hand colored
This card has the postage stamp on the front, it was postmarked from England, 1908 and sent to Ontario
This one is also an undivided back card - it was postmarked from Woodbine, Illinois, 1906.
This one was sent to Mabel from Hazel - in 1909
Hope everyone really does have the merriest Christmas!
