Merry Christmas

Looking west from Seattle to the Olympic Mountains
While looking through my postcard collection for a card to share this holiday, suddenly the clouds to the west parted and the morning sun brightened the fresh snow on the Olympic Mountains. I thought ... maybe I can make my own post card and that is what you see above.

After snapping the photo, I continued looking for a paper card and the one I found is shown below. It's pretty old ... probably early 1900s. Hope you have a fine celebration be it Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa.

A Merry Christmas

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.


  1. Hi JOHN,
    MERRY CHRISTMAS to You and Family - Best Wishes from KEV. (Sydney AUSTRALIA). Whilst you have snow there in Seattle we have 35Deg C for Christmas Day...the Air Conditioner is certainly on- and a bit hot to sit in the Shed and work on my Modelling to-day. Have a great time there in Seattle. Cheers. KEV.

  2. Wow, impressive mountain view! Where I live in south-west Sweden we have no snow for Christmas, but the temperatures are hovering around 0'C, i.e. freezing point. Today looks like it's going to be sunny, though.

  3. Hello, John! I love the beautiful postcards. Merry Christmas to you and your family! I wish you all the best in 2019, a Happy New year!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  5. I love both your card and the ancient one, John. You always know how to make me smile. Merry Christmas to you and yours! :-)

  6. And a beautiful card it is.
    Merry Christmas to you John and all your family.

  7. I love the mountain card. Have a Merry Christmas and a year filled with blessings.

  8. Your photography blows my mind. The city of Seattle should have you on their payroll. Your photos could double the tourism :) Thank you for visiting my blog. Reply to your comment: John you are so generous with your kind comments, thank you for being such a good blogging friend. Merry Christmas to you and your wife. May your new year be filled with amazing adventures and extreme good health.
    Connie :)

  9. Wow, nice card, your self made one. Hope your Christmas day was a very good one ♥
