Robins and Snow

I'm feeling pretty Christmassy now, as I have no more fairs and markets to attend, and have sent out all the orders from my shop. Yay!! Now all I have to do is to get my Christmas shopping done and the cards sent! I hope I'm not too late, like poor Mrs Robin on the card above. These are from a lovely set of Happy Families I got earlier in the year. The illustrations are delightful, with details like Master Robin's hot water bottle (I know how he feels!).

The pictures below are from my ever-growing collection of vintage greeting cards. I do love a good snow scene, and as I'm in a holiday mood, I'll try to share a few more with you over the next week. (Judging from the forecast, we might have some real snow scenes too....)

Hi Elaine
I love the robin family. They remind me of the fluffy chaps you were nice enough to give me when I met you, which now are hopping about our side, near the cardboard pirate.
Can't seem to get my blogging mojo going, but soon, soon.
Have a great Christmas,
Jane x

Wow! They're all beautiful!

Who made the first four cards up there in the set? Those are amazing.
