Hello! My mother-in-law died in 1997 and some time after that I was given a set of old Christmas cards she had kept. I don't know what year these cards are from, but she was married in 1958, so perhaps she kept them as a memento of the first Christmas she and my father-in-law celebrated as husband and wife. I'll highlight a few favorites in this post.
Bells seemed to be popular that year.
As did pine branches edged in blue.
Gotta love this vehicle! Looks like a cross between Santa's sleigh and a red convertible!
And how about this assortment of vehicles from various eras? Pretty fanciful, though, to have that sporty red number being followed by a one-horse open sleigh!
And if cars or sleighs don't suit your fancy, why not try a bicycle built for three?
I'll leave you with this lively scene from "the four of us".
Yeah, they sure don't make Christmas cards like they used to! My late mother-in-law was rather a packrat, but I'm glad she saved these cards!
