A Happy Christmas 1910 antique postcard Poinsettias and gold & Bavarian 3 tier holiday server
Our antique postcard feature of the day from Antiques And Teacups is a wonderful embossed card with poinsettias and a gold metallic band with the greeting To Wish Yo A Happy Christmas. The postcard was mailed in Hopkins, Michigan with a Grand Rapids postmark in 1910 and was printed in Germany.
Again, from a simpler time...no street address, just the name and city. How fun is that! The greeting is still the English version A Happy Christmas but that was about to change with the growing popularity of Merry Christmas. Such a pretty design!

And a perfect server for your gingerbread men and snickerdoodles, here is a great 3 tier Christmas design server made between 1946-1975 by Christian Seltmann, Bavaria Germany in a great holly pattern. The design is a pretty and it is so functional. I love things that can be taken apart for off season storage. It makes it so much easier!

Enjoy your day...hope you aren't someone with disrupted holiday plans with the various weather issues out there. We are dry and sunny today in Sequim, Washington although 35 degrees at the moment. Now have to figure what to make for dinner with some leftover chicken....but there is always some dark chocolate peppermint bark left, so life is good!!!
