Christmas is really all about traditions, even here on the blog, as I have several Christmas time traditions. One of which is sharing a portion of my ever growing vintage Christmas card collection. I really delight in vintage commercial illustration, and greeting cards have always provided some of the warmest, most charming images.
This sampling showcases some gorgeous script lettering and the continued allure of old-fashioned imagery. I find the third one down especially interesting as it evokes the head vases that were popular in the 1940s-1960s.
Of course I don’t just keep these gems tucked away! They should be displayed! And you may have spied how I display them in my Christmas decor post, where I hang them, laundry line style, with tiny clothes pins on a string. You can find these mini clothes pins on Amazon, or Michael’s. I use the ones that are about one inch in length.
