Merry Christmas Eve

Well here it is and I still have things for show & tell LOL. I finally got my little silver tinsel tree out and put some of my old vintage post cards on it. I just  love old Christmas post cards lots of them are post marked the week of Christmas with a one cent stamp on them. I love the ones post marked Dec 24 1908. Most of mine our 1904-1917

I could enjoy Christmas for another month. Hope you all have a great week

 'With Home and Love and Cheer and Many a Friend ,

 A Happy , Merry Christmas  May you spend              xoxo

  1. love your post cards, things were so much more beautiful in those days. I am at work till noon or so and then Sissy Dog and me are off to the Kroger and then to the Moss Mansion. I just posted my Christmas blog, and I guess I am ready for the Holidays to begin. I'm hoping for a new house for Christmas, Have my eye on one. Do you think Santa will come through? Merry Christmas, my love. Richard and Sissy from My Old Historic House.
