My Favorite Christmas Cards {Christmas 2012}


By now most of you have received this year’s Christmas card from J and I. If you haven’t, I mailed my last batch today, so check your mailbox soon.


Every year, we head to see Margaret and Sallie at our favorite Magazine Street custom stationery shoppe, Scriptura. Since moving back to New Orleans in 2008, we have ordered our cards from this charming shop.

I also try and keep a copy of ones from past years. Though I do not have them all, here are the ones we have mailed out to friends and family in years past.

My favorite from our Atlanta years is a card we sent out in 2005. Paper Affair at Peachtree Battle designed it from a pen and ink original drawing of our home by Dena Wade. From our house to yours… I love it!

I love receiving cards from friends and family. All are displayed on the cork board in the kitchen.


Have you sent out your holiday cards?

Today, I am linking to Kelly’s Korner blog for another Show Us Your Life Series, Christmas cards.

Christmas cards, y’all!


  1. My brother-in-law James has been designing his own Christmas cards for years--all are very clever. Maybe next year I will get around to sending out Christmas cards! Have a wonderful day! :)

  2. I love those cards, Ron - so unique and beautiful! I was so late sending my cards out this year. I just sent them yesterday!
    Have a Merry Christmas!
    Cheers! - Shelley

  3. Mailed mine yesterday!! Yours are all beautiful Ron!
    Merry Christmas to you and J!!

  4. Your cards are all very special-I'm sure your friends and family enjoying receiving them every year! I may not be online much in the next few days so I just want to wish you and J and very blessed Christmas! Hugs, Meghan

  5. Great cards. When I'm in New Orleans mid January, I'll check out Scriptura. This is the first year we aren't sending cards. Kinda of wish we would now! Merry Christmas! ~Delores

  6. Hello! I just found your blog! I have been just browsing around and have fallen in love with your style.
    Cards are special. I save all mine and put them in a scrap book each year.

  7. We always design our own card. It's like a dress - I would hate knowing someone else had one just like it!

    Very beautiful choice this year.

  8. Cute cards! I got my own out pretty early this year. I sent 75....downsized from last year. I'm getting so old half my friends are dead.....bwhahaha...yes I am very bad...xo Diana

  9. Love them! I usually order mine from Crane each year - I love their classic hand engraved cards!

  10. Got my card from you and J yesterday! Merry Christmas to both of you! :)


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
