Dec. 11th Antique Christmas Postcard, Angel Joy Cross Stitch

It's Dec. 11th and my antique Chritsmas postcard is an art nouveau lovely!






The postcard was postmarked for Dec. 23, 1914 to and from Wilton, Maine. I love the embossed, silver metallic details and the snowy vignette. The design definitely harks back to the art nouveau period. The card says Best Wishes and A Happy Christmas and is written in pencil. What a reminder of simpler times.

This is another of my Christmas cross stitches. This Joy angel goes back to 2001, if I remember correctly. I couldn't get the light right, so it's not the best and I am not the best photographer in the best conditions!  But I wanted to share with you this symbol of my best wishes for your Christmas Joy to be full!

  2. The cards of Christmas, when the true meaning was celebrated ... are beautiful. I still send out proper Christmas cards, and am shocked when I receive a generic e-card ... xo HHL
