Created ByHand Challenge - vintage

I really enjoy receiving photo Christmas cards in the mail at this time of year. It's wonderful to see the faces of those near and dear and those that I don't get to see often at all due to distance or busy lives. I remember as a child the annual trek to the photographers for the taking of the "Christmas photo". Usually there wasn't yet snow on the ground and the Christmas spirit was NOT alive and well in all of us. There would inevitably have been a small scuffle about clothing worn or time taken to get ready so by the time we arrived we were less than cheery with one another. Nevertheless, the shots were taken and we were always glad that we had a record of that time in our lives to share with others. This is my entry for the Created ByHand challenge this week.
