Santa Is Wishing You A Merry Christmas Vintage Postcard 1915

Christmas is really creeping up on us, isn't it. This is my first Christmas in Minnesota in five years. Hubby and I spent 3 years in Southern California and then 1 1/2 in in Texas. No snow for all those Christmas.

We are now in Duluth and there is snow on the ground. Even though I hate the cold, icy roads and everything that goes with winter, it is so beautiful.

Here is another of my vintage Christmas postcards... we have Santa in his red suit going down the chimney. What happens if you do not have a chimney? That is what I wondered when I was a little girl.

This lovely card is postmarked 1915 Wisconsin and sent to a child by the last name of Butler of Janesville Wisconsin. Sadly the postmark goes over the first name.

Message is Dear Letha (hard to make out first name with the writing). I have never heard of Letha.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and many presents. I am sure you have been a good girl and deserve them.
with love
Wilma L Bouibeau ?

Front of postcard says
Here I come the broad
chimney flue,
Bringing best Christmas wishes to you!

I am sharing this on Vintage Thingie Thursday

My wish to all of you is to have a wonderful holiday. Thanks for stopping by.. Grace


  1. I love vintage postcards, thank you so much for sharing this charming one with us!

    Wishing you the merriest of Christmases and much joy in 2011!

  2. I no doubt there are several little ones, wondering about Santa and the chimney. Everybody does not have one. It is fun as long as they believe. Merry Christmas.

  3. Santa must have used the door or window if there was no chimney. I have seen quite a few postcards with Santa looking in the window.

  4. That's a fantastic postcard. As much as I hate icy roads, I do envy my Canadian cousins who have white Christmas every year. Happy, healthy New Year to you and you family.

  5. What a great postcard! I love vintage postcards and have a collection of them. I look forward to reading some more of your posts!

    Have a lovely week!
