Old Treasures

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.  Ours was kind of quiet which wasn't such a bad thing.  

Now the time has come to pull out all the Christmas decorations.  I love to collect Santa images and thought I might share with you some vintage cards I have received over the years. I hope you can make use of these images in a project or two.

Happy decorating!

No Santa image here but I thought you might like these adorable choirboys.
What a sweet old face.

This one is a little more modern version
This card is one of my favorites.  I love his expression.  What you can't see from this photo is that he has a little bit of glitter in his beard.  It really makes him special.   

I hope to be able to bring more images to you as I dig further into my stash of Christmas treasures.

Have a great day!

The countdown begins...

In the closing days before the "official" kickoff of the Christmas season (I realize stores started their Christmas season in August!) I just wanted to take a moment to wish you and yours a most special Thanksgiving day.  Sometimes in the anxiety of trying to get prepared for a holiday event I have to stop and reflect on the blessings in my life and that helps give me an "attitude adjustment".  

I pray especially for peace in our country and peace in your home dear friends.  Have a wonderful day.

Anxiety or Excitement?

The countdown has begun ... 7 days and counting.  I know, you are thinking the election isn't that far away.  Well, sorry, I wasn't thinking about the election this time,  I was thinking about the days until I do my first art show in nearly 13 years.  Have I done the right kinds of artwork, is it priced right, will anybody like my stuff?  Well, we'll see.  I've had a good time getting ready for it anyway. 

If you are anywhere in southern Indiana on Saturday, November 10th, come to the Christian Academy of Indiana off Grant Line Road in New Albany, Indiana and visit this show.  I have not done this show before but it sounds like a great one.  The hours are 9:00 to 2:00 p.m.

The following Saturday will be the Male High School Winter Wonderland 2012.  This venue is located at Male High School at 4409 Preston Highway in Louisville, KY.  The hours will be 8:30 to 3:30 p.m. 

I wanted to share with you a couple more photos and cards to add to your vintage collection.  Enjoy!  

Is there anything prettier than a pink rose?

This would make a really cute greeting card.

This little one doesn't look all that happy about taking care of little brother!

Wooing in the moonlight....

Enjoy playing with these images.  Be sure to click on them to enlarge the size and then save in your inventory.

Have a great weekend!
