ANTIQUE SANTA POSTCARDS

Wishing all our friends out in the blogging world and family a HEALTHY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL. As we try to stay dry from another day of much needed rain. Since the Christmas season is still in the air I wanted to share with you all some antique post cards of Santa making his trip to different places for the holiday.

And if you look real close at the cards, they all have American flags displayed on them. All three were made from 1904-1910. They are postmarked with the dates and a small message, sent to luved ones at the time. I like using old flower frogs to display the postcards. They seem to display much better. I hope you have enjoyed our Americana Santa post card collection and also wishing you all once again a HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR.............Julian & Ray Today I will be linking for VINTIAGE THINGIE THURSDAY and also for ~ VINTIAGE INSPIRATION FRIDAY ~ and also for ~ SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY~ and just one more LOL ~ FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE ~ I hope you all enjoy the other blogger photos.

  4. I love old fashioned cards and artwork from that time period! I have collected some reproduction Christmas cards over the years. They remind me of a much simpler time...

  6. Those are sweet.
    I like how you're using floral frogs to hold them. I hadn't thought of that. I'm going to dig mine out to hold cards! Thanks.
