14th December - Advent Photo

 Today's Christmas book is another that's been on my shelves for as long as I can remember.

 A Christmas Scrapbook compiled by Elizabeth Walter and published in 1979

Each page has an illustration of a Victorian Christmas card and some history of all the traditions  that we know today.

I doubt you'd find a New Years card in 2020 featuring a dead turkey!

 Christmas returning after being banned in 1652  featuring on a Victorian card 200 years later

Back Tomorrow


  1. Now that looks like a nice book :-)

  2. What an interesting book. I'd love to dip into that one.
    My "murder" book has just arrived. Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to reading it and hopefully it'll help get me in the Christmas mood! xx

  3. What a beautiful cover on the book. x

  4. My book has arrived this afternoon - it looks like a real treat with some very good authors so I will probably read one a day at bedtime. Thanks again - it is really very kind of you.

    Hope you have a good week - a glorious day here after a terribly wet weekend. Vicki

  5. What a beautiful book. I've always loved Victorian cards. I could skip the dead turkey though!
