Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends




 With the hustle and bustle of the few days before Christmas I think it is time to take a break, have a cup of tea and contemplate the reason for the season.


 These two pictures are from a past Christmas post.



 And now for  a bit of whimsy, here are pictures of thwo "Christmas Children" from the book Flower Children by Elizabeth Gordon with pictures  drawn by M.T. Ross   The  book was published back in 1910 and I am fortunate enough to have a copy.  These particular graphics were taken from the Graphics fairy web site because they showed up clearer than anything I could scan from the old book.  I imagine they were from a later edition which is the colors are more intense than the book I have.

Here they are:


Poinsettia

Holly and Berries




 The post cards in this post are also from The Graphics Fairy.  She is a wonderful free resource. 
You can find her site by clicking the link on the right side of this page.

I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.

Hope you will visit them too.
