to thee and thine from me and mine

(i borrowed the title from one of the old vintage cards)

hello dear friends! it’s early but it’s about to get crazy and am not sure when i’ll get back here. the next few days are gonna to be filled to the gills so this is just a quick note while there’s a quiet moment.

i’m a sucker for vintage holiday stuff and there’s a ton of it on flickr so i had some fun searching the pretty old drawings and sweet sentiments.

i do want to take a sec just to say that i’m so grateful to have you in my life. even thought it’s technically a virtual friendship, it’s really real to me.

(funny to think this card is probably from the 20’s and they’re talking about an ‘old fashioned’ thanksgiving).

well, better get back to it! all the best, i hope your day is full of life and laughs with the ones you love.

happy thanksgiving everyone!

    :) happy thanks giving to you too!

    I enjoy your blog a lot and hope you’ll have more quiet moments to blog (:D).
    I’m sick right now and the best thing about it is that at least for a week I’ll be able to do some no-stress blogging;)

    Thank you for the sweet note. I am so grateful for this next step! As for this darling post of yours…I have been fighting with my bank all day, and needed this great vintage “forget your ills…forget the bank…etc” poster. This made my afternoon and reminds me to be thankful for the important things in life. Plus, she’s wearing a gorgeous red coat. I need to find myself one like it!

    I love these vintage holiday images! So lovely.


  19. Passementerie replied:

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I tried to get pumpkin to make a pumpkin pie for my American husband but failed.

    On the subject of old-fashioned illustrations – I posted about just that very thing today (childrens’ nursery rhymes and the Arts and Crafts movement)! Have a look – I think you’ll really like it.

    Claudia hoping that your Thanksgiving was filled with sweet memories to last your lifetime?! I’m hoping this holiday season is a good one for all my retailer friends. We all need positive news that people feel more confident about parting with their money once again. All the best to you xx deb
