Though Miles are Between Us!

Found this great old Christmas card.
I can't help thinking Christmas at the Watson homestead
would have been just swell.

The overlaying of the young Watson's faces onto this family image
was way ahead of it's time.
Don't forget, there was no photoshop then!

It does however sadden me to think of all those service men and women
who even today will be away from their loved ones this year.



  1. That's a very poignant card. Have a very happy Christmas yourself!

  2. Lovely post..Love your blog and your shop, of course!Have a lovely Christmas,try and enjoy it as much as possible.

  3. Have a great Christmas Wendy, love the card.
