Sparkle #166: Vintage Holiday Cards

Happy Monday folks! It’s almost Christmas, and I cannot wait until the holiday season officially kicks in sometime next week. With less than 10 days to go for Christmas, I have been obsessed with finding the perfect holiday cards which I can share with my loved ones. I think I am strongly leaning towards vintage themed holiday cards this season. Just browsing through some of these cards makes me feel so warm and happy inside. They remind me of a simpler, nicer time and a Christmas spent with family, friends, love and gratitude. These vintage cards reinforce the values of the holiday, and help us focus on all the wonderful…

Pinterest is my biggest source of inspiration for Christmas tree decor ideas. Some interesting themes which caught my eye recently are pictured below. Which one of these should I pick for decorating my tree this year? Vote for your favorite using comments below. (PS – I…

Sparkle #163: Travel with the Holiday Magazine

I recently came across some illustrated covers for the Holiday Magazine, and was curious to know more about their content and readership. The Holiday Magazine was first published in the US between 1946 – 1977, and it introduced a new and exciting glamour and lifestyle travel format for it’s readers. What set the magazine apart from it’s contemporaries was it’s strong aesthetic sense, a fun and creative layout, stellar photography and brilliant writing. An art house in Paris relaunched the magazine in 2014. They started with the essence of the first version, but also added trends from the current century to make it more…
