A couple years ago I started to share my collection of vintage Christmas cards, but there is a various specific part of this collection have decided to share with you this year, vintage California Christmas postcards.
As many of you know, Christmas is a bit different here in California, especially Southern California. Most of us here don’t get to see a white Christmas, and we don’t often have to bundle up to go outside.Therefore I enjoy finding pieces that speak to “our” kind of Christmas, so when I first spied and purchased a California Christmas postcard at an antique mall a couple years ago, I fell down a rabbit hole that has now resulted in the small collection you see here.
I especially love ones that incorporate oranges, and some feature icons of various cities in California, such as El Camino Real, the Hotel Del Coronado and Balboa Park in San Diego, the rose garden at Exposition Park in LA, and the San Francisco Ferry Building.
Like with my other vintage Christmas cards I use mini clothespins and ribbon to display these each year.
Need some Christmas tunes that also reflect Christmas in California? Check out this post here!
