Christmas memories past...vintage Christmas cards

My Mom gave me some of her vintage Christmas cards a few years ago. I decided it was time to scan them in. I especially love the Nativity scenes. The image above was inside the card below.

This card above says inside: "May the lovely Star that lit the way to where the little Christ-Child lay-
Enshrine this Christmas through and through with Holy Peace and Joy for you."
To Jack & Family From Dennis (Jack's younger brother)

The inside of this card says:
"As Christmas worship brings to mind God's precious gift to all mankind,
May faith in Christ our hope increase and give you joy and newborn peace."
Love, Pat and Judy (Pat was my Mom's sister in law)
I hope you enjoy these images. Please feel free to use them for your own projects.

Dear Loretta and Yvette Marie,

We tried to post this comment on your other blog but couldn't seem to.

We loved the photograph of Yvette Marie posting her letter to Santa Claus! You did a lovely job on her green velvet cape!

Your St. Nicholas Tea looked to be a joyous occasion! What delightful gifts the girls received!

Thank you for entering our Yellowware Bowl Giveaway.

Love your vintage Christmas cards and memories!
