A Bright and Merry Christmas

A Bright and Merry Christmas!

I am named for my maternal grandmother and it was a perfect choice for me. We shared many characteristics and one of the most important is a reverence for the past. She managed to preserve many old family Christmas cards. Few, if any have a salutation written directly on the card, so I do not know who gave what to whom, but they are lovely examples of the art inherent in early Christmas cards.  I want to share a few here. Merry Christmas!

I believe this cards may be made by Prang & Company - you can read about him here http://www.emotionscards.com/museum/louisprang.htm

Home Sweet Home

I especially love these bucolic country scenes … this is my ideal of what Christmas looks like…
