Christmas Past...

Hello everyone

I have got the afternoon off, although have to go out for a hospital appointment in a while.  Its such a cold, wet, dull afternoon so I thought I would share a few pictures of christmas cards etc from the 1960s (when I was a little girl!!) to cheer us all up.  All pictures are courtesy of good old Google Images.

First up we have this dream-like picture of a deer in a forest - I remember we used to get several cards in similar designs every year.  I love the impressionist quality of this picture

Next something a little more chocolate-boxy, but still on the deer theme

I really like this one too, even though the style is very different.

Yet more deer but in yet another style

And finally, I love this one, really appeals to the ex-graphic designer in me!!

Hope you are keeping warm and that the Christmas preparations are fun rather than stressful!
