Red Book and Christmas Telegram Postcard: Free Digital Downloads

Today I head up to the beautiful California Redwoods to a creative retreat with my very special friends. We lodge in the Lydia House at St. Dorothy’s Rest, a beautiful rustic place to recharge our batteries and leave our every-day responsibilities at the door. This is also the retreat where I bring along 12 enormous swag-filled bags with fabulous craft and retreat products from many wonderful hand-picked sponsors. I will take lots of pictures and when I return from the retreat…let the games to begin! Another Scrapbook Retreat Sponsor Swag Giveaway! It’s going to be JSIM’s biggest giveaway to date, so hold on to your hat! Be sure to check back soon to see what you could win!

In the meantime…here are some colorful images just in time for Christmas crafting from two items I found at the Reclaimed Legacies Vintage Artisan Faire in Petaluma last weekend. A beautifully disheveled red book cover and a telegram & holly postcard from 1909 from Edgar and Edgar. The handwriting on the back of the postcard reads:

I send the old, old greeting

Tendered year by year,

For a Merry, Merry Christmas

And a Glad New Year.
