Poignant reminders of Christmas past. . .


 I'll let the poignancy of these heartfelt mementos of a gentler age, now sadly passed, speak for themselves. . .









Wishing you all everything you wish for yourselves at this happy and reflective time of year xx

Oh how lovely. I am sure there would be a market for a reproduction of the Beatrix Potter Calendar. The sentiment in the Christmas card, sniff, very touching.

Oh my! I'm feeling all sappy now, remembering cards like that when I was young...sweet and innocent. If a company started making cards like that, I'm sure they would be number one..."Hello, is anyone listening out there, bring back the cards that really say something"?!

Thanks for sharing these sweet items from the past. xo

I agree with Sherri, bring back the wonderful cards from Christmas past!
I did smile at your comments on my post, although I expect you did not find the cats antics funny at the time! I am sure you looked just lovely anyway, despite the lack of time to get ready. xx

Two things:
a. I would have loved to have been called Cherry.

b. I would have loved to have gotten that card from Ian.

How lovely.

I used to buy many old cards from auctions when I had my little antigue shop and found them very hard to sell on.
