Nostalgic Wishes...

Aren't these vintage postcards the just perfect wish for the Holidays to receive in the mail? Call me obsolete, but I love to receive and handle old- fashioned letters and cards! And to cherish all of them.
It's such a pity they don't print like that anymore...

These pen nib are my Great Grandmother's. You bet I love this winter girl in blue!

This French postcard is one of my favorite pieces of my treasured collection. 

Hope you had a fabulous Christmas day! We really enjoyed it in simplicity, peace and love. I can say, the most beautiful Christmas so far!
Today I'm working on my teddy bear. Oh joy. 
Stay cozy and warm! See you soon.

    Beautiful cards...I too love the vintage ones

  11. Oh yes, Monica. These are lovely treasures.

    We have had a wonderful Christmas holiday, and we're still enjoying it all. I didn't have to go in to my office to work this week.

  12. Monica,

    Lovely post cards! I sometimes worry with this instant information age that we will lose all the wonderful handwritten treasures from this generation, email, im, twitter, etc. seem to be in vogue and actual handwritten notes a thing of the past. I am glad you collect some of these treasures, saving little pieces of history.

  13. Monica, those cards are so perfect for you, they remind me of you too!!! I love all the posts you have written this year, the leaps and bounds that you have made and the new promise of a happy year to come! I know that soon you will be settled in a wonderful new home and I am so looking forward to seeing you blossom even more!
    So glad you had a lovely holiday and I hoping to have a moment to catch up with you!!!
    Hugs and Kisses!!!

  14. You did create a beautiful year for all of us to enjoy. I always get a cup of tea and sit back and enjoy your posts. No rush just enjoying my friends creativity and the joy dear Kim gives out with every photo. Hugs and paws from Sharon and Teddy.

  15. Hello Doll, just popped in to say, Happy New Year!!!!!
