It is now official, Thanksgiving Day is behind us and we start the Christmas season. We will be busy shopping for just the right gift in very busy shopping malls; listening to holiday songs and wishing for a white Christmas.
We want to recognize our friends and extended family during this blessed time so we carefully choose the just the right cards to send a holiday message. Once upon a time many gifts were handmade. My grandmother, Florence Sterling Roesch Hilligoss, was one who crocheted doily's and other items and also designed her own cards. This was a time when you could feel the love radiate from the gift for the time it took to make them. I still have towels safely stored that she crocheted around the edges.
What I fancy most I think are the hand designed and hand written Christmas postcards.
