God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Old Greeting Cards


Do you remember these wonderful old greeting cards?  I just love them!  I have a few small boxes full of them for Christmas as well as other holidays.  I haven't collected them for ages but I always have a look-see if I find some for sale someplace.  All the ones I have are unsigned with envelopes.  I haven't seen them in years (things still packed in moving boxes don't cha know) but maybe next year I'll be able to unearth them & use them in my decor.

I find myself saying "maybe next year" a lot recently but who knows what the new year holds.  I pray that it will be a good one for all of us!

I was recently helping my mom clean out her attic as she prepares my childhood home for sale and came across the most delightful old Christmas cards, Shirlee! I just loved the sweetness of them and plan on framing a few or somehow decorating with them next year...

Wishing you a joyous Christmas and a new year where lots of your "next year" projects get done :)

I just found so really cute old christmas postcards at my local thrift store. I felt like christmas came early! Not sure what I will do with them, next year...
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

Funny, I think there are tons of us saying "maybe next year" - glad I'm not alone. But for our sake, I do hope you unearth your collection "next year" so we can see them. I have a thing for the old children's books and have a small collection for Halloween and Christmas. Just takes you back to a simpler time....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
