A Lovely Little Christmas Card…

“Greeting cards have all been sent

The Christmas rush is through

But I still have one wish to make

A special one for you”- Merry Christmas, Darling by Karen Carpenter

Three days away from the big holiday… Have you sent out your Christmas cards yet? 

A recent article in Town & Country explains that the tradition of sharing cards dates back to the Victorian age when in 1843, Sir Henry Cole commissioned artist John Callcott Horsley to design a card and then printed thousands for a shilling a piece. Once postage costs declined, the trend really took off among the masses. 

 Of course hand sketched cards have generally been replaced with our modern day photo cards as technology has developed and become more accessible.

I don’t know about you, but I love opening my mailbox this time of year and seeing the beautiful faces of friends and family sharing season’s greetings. 

While it might be a little late to order custom cards here are a few, festive options to send holiday cheer:
