An Old-Fashioned Tradition...and a Giveaway!

It's late October and, like me, some of you are beginning to think about your Christmas cards.

I love receiving old fashion style (aka non-virtual) holiday cards from family and friends.  
I have a few that still include a letter sharing all that has happened in their family during the past year.

There are lots of ways to display those tangible tokens of love and friendship.
I've created a Pinterest board here if you need a few ideas.

It's such a sweet tradition that, so far, hasn't totally been absorbed into the virtual world.  Hey, I'm all about the convenience of online but sometimes old-fashion ways are refreshing.
