Once again I will tell the story that my father kept all the holiday cards he received as a child.  They are all postcards.  After he died, I found a box full of them.  I shall post a few Christmas postcards here today.  Postage on the early ones is one cent and on the later ones two cents.

  1. A really interesting assortment in this post. I like the little mouse in the center the best. And the music box looks like quite an antique. The old cards are the very best inheritance I can think of for Christmas. You are so fortunate to have them since they were your father’s collection. The cats are adorable in their little stocking caps. You did a great job of getting them to leave the caps on during the photo session. I’m afraid mine would not have been as cooperative. Happy Christmas to you and yours and the cats too.

I love the old Christmas cards you can imagine back then,people giving them out. Lastly I think you’re lucky to have all your purrfect Christmas elves beside you at this time of year.
