My guess is that lower Michigan is looking a lot like this vintage postcard today.
Really. It wasn’t that long ago that women didn’t have the right to vote. My daughters who have grown up thinking a woman can do anything take this right for granted. Don’t. In Illinois, it’s time to get out there and vote today.
This is my last Christmas post for the 2011 year. Yesterday, I overheard this conversation in my house between two 21 year old man-child’s.
“Ben, do you change the pictures in your house seasonally?”
Be still my heart. The stairway features my favorite vintage Christmas church postcards. It is one of those subtle reminders of what this holiday is truly about.
In case I haven’t mentioned that I have a HUGE vintage postcard collection that I craft with, I do. Here is my final set of Christmas placemats made from vintage postcards. If you don’t happen to have a laminator around the house, the UPS store can enlarge and copy the postcard. They also laminate too!
To my sister, I will be thinking of you this Christmas Eve at Midnight Mass remembering our favorite song “Oh Holy Night”.
Crafting again with vintage Christmas postcards. The laminator is ready and waiting.
It’s time to put the Turkeys away and head over to the One of a Kind Show in downtown Chicago. Before I go, I wanted to show you what you can do with a vintage postcard collection. You make things! I photocopied, enlarged and laminated my Thanksgiving postcards. They are fun to have on the kitchen table throughout the holiday season and clean up is a quick wipe down. I love to make and give these placemat sets as gifts to special friends. So, now you know what to ask for this Christmas……….a laminator!
