Vintage Postcard: Grungy Christmas Bell with Winter Berries and a Red Bow (from 1906)


I left a bit of grunge on this vintage Christmas greeting card from 1906. I love the colours and composition of the brassy-gold Christmas bell entwined with sprigs of berry-laden holly and mistletoe, all bound together and finished off with a bright red bow. Wouldn't this be a lovely card to accompany a vintage gift? You can download the high-res 4" x 6" @ 300ppi JPEG without a watermark here.

Victorian Whimsy: Mr. Snowbird Spends Christmas with Br'er Rabbit


This vintage picture story that originally appeared in the December 1895 issue of St. Nicholas Magazine shows Mr. Snowbird spending Christmas with the hero trickster of many traditional folk tales, Br'er Rabbit. Don't they look like they are having a merry old time? I thought this would be great for a whimsical Christmas card but you can also use it for other holiday design projects.

Vintage Postcard: Christmas Greeting Card with Cherubs Holding a Banner



A vintage Christmas postcardcard from my personal collection. The front shows a pair of angelic cherubs holding a blank banner against a snow-covered Christmas tree with a sparkling star in the background. I have also scanned and included the postally unmarked postcard back. Great for any upcoming Christmas projects.
