On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a reindeer?

 

This charming card was sent to me one year from my friend Lica. I like the little girl’s outfit. Red and gray are a nice alternative to red and green and what a treat to see her in a skirt (rather than jeans or leggings or sweat pants) paired with cute boots and striped tights. I’m pretty sure this little girl hails from somewhere in Europe. The outfit feels very European.

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me … sugar plum fairies. 

 

I have had this card for so many years. It’s a print of an old photo of sugar plum fairies, circa 1915. So sweet are their crowns and pretty white dresses. This card was from my sis-in-law (thanks Lori!) and I enjoy seeing and displaying it again every holiday season.

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a jaunt in the snow.

This is another of my London finds from the V&A Museum. It’s from an original greeting card, circa 1941.

So festive!

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a smart vintage ensemble. 

This is my favorite Christmas card. A good friend of mine gave it to me in 2012. (Thanks, Suzette!) I have kept it and happily displayed it every year since. I of course like the vintage outfit, the colors, the snow, and the tree sticking out just a bit. It charms me!

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a snowy Piccadilly Square. 

When I get the chance to travel to the UK, I usually go in October. By then the shops are already gearing up for the holidays and I take advantage by picking up holiday cards. I bought this one at St. James Church in Piccadilly, London. Fridays at noon the church has free concerts and sells holiday cards for charities. The illustration is by Simon Par and the charity who benefited was MIND for better mental health. I like the colors in this scene and the scarves and umbrellas, not to mention the iconic London buses.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a cute dog in a sweater. 

Such a great dress with the Santa cuffs and collar. The red gloves and whimsical Christmas tree umbrella are a nice touch. This was another one of my holiday cards sent out a few years ago.
