Sepia Saturday

This week’s prompt is an annual favorite: vintage Christmas. I celebrate with vintage greeting cards from Flickr Commons.

Rather disturbing, don’t you think? This is not the spirit of the season. Scrooge’s card?

1920’s Christmas

  1. A fun medley of Christmas imagery. The Chinese junk from Nova Scotia seems the oddest to me. The lady navigating the ice puddles of Norway is my favorite.
    I hope you have a very happy holiday and joyful new year.

  2. That Santa working to finish the doll house reminds me of many a Christmas eve night, wee hours of Christmas mornings…but at least he’s smoking his pipe. Great collection…and the one sad tike (?) in a teapot is perhaps just tired out from all the preparations. I usually last till Christmas afternoon for my nap! Happy holidays to you and yours.

  3. Love those frogs, and the elegant 1920s flapper. Santa painting the dolls’ house made me think of my daughter, who was painting one for her daughter, although I think it was the night before her birthday rather than Christmas Eve.
