    Holidays are all about tradition, and I love this one: Featuring Christmas cards from Mamie Eisenhower — our patron saint of the pink bathrooms — every year.  Thanks to the Eisenhower National Historic Site for their permission to feature this card, which was made for Mamie by Hallmark. Have a Safe & Merry Mamie Christmas, everyone.

    1. Merry Christmas to you, Pam and Kate! Thank you for this wonderful, happy blog. I have gone ornament wreath crazy and every time I complete one I laugh inside like some maniacal evil genius. I’m so glad to find like-minded people who understand that!

    2. Have a happy and healthy holiday, everyone!

      (It just occurred to me that if I ever have grandkids, I’ll request that they call me Mamie. Maybe I’ll be as sweet as the lady on this delightful illustration.)

    3. Merry Christmas to you and Kate, Pam! Thank you for all of your hard work in bringing the glory of mid-century love to the rest of us. I hope 2014 brings you both much success, joy, happiness, and love!!

    4. Everything about this card is just perfection.
