Vintage Christmas Cards

Today I am sharing some vintage Christmas cards I found in grandma's things. I am so fascinated with the detail and intricate design; both in paper work and typography.

I'm feeling pretty guilty not sending out Christmas cards this year. No pictures, no letter, no card. I can hardly believe it myself.

With Facebook, email and texting, it seems we've lost some of the magic of the season, where we used to look forward to hearing from friends and family once a year. Our mailboxes used to be stuffed with hand written letters and warm wishes. These cards make me appreciate a simpler time. (Wow, I sound old.)

They are so beautiful, you should almost frame them.
