A very special thing

DSCN4263
You’ll have to excuse the rather rubbish photo, but I wanted to share a very special thing that I will be taking to the Great Dixter Christmas Fair at the weekend. It’s a Christmas card by Eyre & Spottiswoode, printers to the King, which was originally sent in 1897. Mounted on a black background, the delicate heather design and scalloped edge really stand out. Find it on our little corner of Winifred’s Daughter’s stand.
