Merry Christmas - Vintage Style

Have I ever revealed my age on my blog?

Let's just say it like my friend Jeff said it...
I'm a product of the 50's, born in the 60's.

{Clever, but shocking!}



In my creative world,
I am drawn to all sorts of styles,
but the Vintage/Retro colors and designs really
touch me, for some reason.
Especially at Christmastime,
I love the fonts and drawings 
that were first popular in the late 1950's and early 60's.



There was a distinctive color palette, too, in that era.
It evokes Christmas memories from my own childhood,
but the same colors appeal to lots of younger folks, too!




Fortunately for me,
this style is very popular again today!



{It is even sometimes described as  MODERN!}



As my gift to you,
here are a few more Christmas images from my Pinterest board
called Merry Christmas!



{I have over 90 images on that board, so head on over,
if you'd like to see more.}



{You are always welcome to Follow me on Pinterest, too.}













I wish I could give you some of my homemade Spritz cookies in person.




Most of all, though, I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!
