During WWII many of the Christmas cards had patriotic themes. This one shows the home fires burning. I added the little boy cut from a Mary Engelbreit illustration. Raised on pop dots, he stands on tip toe hanging his sock for Santa. The small bow was a gift from Erica at Golden Egg Vintage perfect for this project!
In pursuit of vintage holiday at every thrift in the metro area, I happily paid 39c for this little sequined choir boy. Black hair like my Young Airman, stationed far away at Pearl Harbor. Home for Christmas 'only in my dreams', but we did SKYPE!
Finally, a peek at the Toy Tag Trade complete with all of our old favorites. Liddle Kiddles by Pixie's Ponderings, Mary Poppins from Perfectly Printed, a Pull Toy created by Imagimeri, Strawberry Shortcake ala Golden Egg Vintage, Swervy Turvy Dipsy Doodle by Linda at LBP Sews, and a Sewing Machine by Zetta's Aprons joined my Lite Brites. I love seeing the era our 'Favorite Toys' reflected; it helps me imagine the tag makers and their personalities. Santa was good to all the little girls!
