Come the middle of November my brain turns to holly-spiked mush and the only thing truly on my mind is how to magic up the kind of Christmas little boys dream of and an old-fashioned Santa wouldn’t  mind enjoying…

And oh how thrilled that same Santa would be to hear that Sunshine and Ravioli (purveyors of all kinds of papery loveliness!) have encapsulated the nuggets of wisdom that define his very velvety, fuzzy essence and printed them on a set of vintage inspired postcards guaranteed to bring a smile to even the Scroogiest of faces…

“All I Need to Know About Christmas, I learned from Santa

-Encourage people to follow you.
-Always remember who’s naughty & who’s nice.
-It’s as much fun to give as it is to receive.
-Some days it’s OK to feel a little chubby.
-Make your presents known.
-Always ask for a little bit more than you really want.
-Bright red can make anyone look good.
-Wear a wide belt and no one will notice how many pounds you have gained.
-If you only show up once a year, everyone will think you’re really important.
-When you are at a loss for words, say “ho,ho,ho”.

Made of ivory card stock and hand printed in vintage sepia, pine green and ivory red, these five cards capture all the nostalgia of a Vintage Christmas with all the humour we need to survive the season.

And indeed the rest of our little lives. Some days, you see, it really is ok to feel a little chubby- and heaven knows I needed permission today!
