BLOGMAS 2016 - Day 13 { Christmas Cards }

Good evening friends, hope you are all keeping warm.  I'm absolutely frozen here in North Texas, this is ridiculous, I feel like I'm back in Idaho hahah

I've had a nice hot shower, I'm all snuggly in my warm pajamas and fuzzy robe and I have a hot cup of Herbal tea, Winter Spice.  I'm actually trying it out, I just got it when I went grocery shopping and I'm not quite sure I like it.  But I won't waste so I'll drink it.

Anyway, today we're talking about Christmas Cards.

I have to say that my favorites have always been the homemade cards, or the vintage looking cards.  Old Santa, and I don't mean as in age, I mean as the old looking Santa.  Do you know what I mean?

People kind of look at me funny when I say that, but I honestly think they've changed Santa's image the past 10 years or more, and I just don't like it.  Anyway, let me show you some of my favorite Christmas cards.

Hi Sweetie! Sorry I had to miss yesterday - we've been freezing here too! Supposed to get -30 degrees with windchill tonight. Brrr!!

I'm with you and LOVE the look of vintage cards. Although, I do love Mary Engelbreit's cards and illustrations for current kinds of cards too.

I was able to join for Day 14! Got that post up tonight anyway. ;)
Blessings. xoxo
