Here we are then, in the season of Advent, leading up to Christmas, and I hope you are all decking your halls with boughs of holly!
My trees and decorations are all up, and I just love all the pretty fairy lights all around, especially on these shorter Winter days over here in England. Two of my grandchildren are aged 8 and 6, and they only live five minutes away. This is so lovely for me as I get to share in all the excitement of the lead up to Christmas.
I have always loved Christmas and have fond memories of when I was a child. Mind you, there wasn't the commercialism back then. Every Christmas Eve, my dad and I used to go to the Market to collect the goose for Christmas Day, and we would also buy my mum's Christmas present at the same time. Happy times my friends 🎄🎄.
I just love anything with a vintage theme, and this includes Christmas Cards, so I thought I would share a few with you today.

Don't you just love how the ladies are all decked out in their gorgeous gowns as they prepare for Christmas?! Love it!
I'm foregoing my Sunday Solace feature just leading up to Christmas, and will start it again in the New Year.
A glimpse of my house all ready! Although we haven't got a thing on our American friends, who really go to town when it comes to decorating! 🎄🎄
Wishing you all a peaceful week ahead as the preparations get under way. There is also a new Featured Post up today.
