Vintage Holiday Images

I am still behind on my holiday card line, and I can feel the clock ticking. I've even tried listening to my favorite Christmas albums (The Christmas Songby Nat King Cole and A Charlie Brown Christmas) while nibbling on cookies and drinking tea. But it is still 80-plus degrees here, and the Gocco fires have yet to warm after my last disaster.
While waiting for the mood to strike I stumbled upon a lovely collection of vintage clippings on Flickr, and Page was generous enough to let me share them. I love, love, love the departure from traditional red and green in some of these. I've already purchase my supplies, so these won't be a direct inspiration for my cards this year, but they do remind me a bit of these.

What do you think? Are you a red-white-and-green person, or do you like the mod touches of pink and turquoise in some of these?

I lean toward the mod/retro images. Do a google search for "retro ornaments" - the results are delicious! Isn't this a fun time of year?

Those are really cute!

I'm more of a homey, comfy type style. If that makes any sense at all.

These bring back memories. (I especially like the little birds.)

Thanks for sharing.
