Favorite of the Week - Antique Christmas Postcards

I went to an ephemera show a while back and bought a wonderful assortment of antique postcards. I kept a few favorites ... and have listed many on eBay (with many more still to list). I put a bunch of vintage Christmas postcards up this week. They are beautiful cards! The greetings on the back are fascinating reading, too.

The three cards pictured here are all by artist Ellen Clapsaddle. She lived 1863 to 1934, and was the most popular postcard illustrator of her time. I love her cards -- especially the ones for Christmas and Halloween!
