This adorable vintage postcard features a sweet Victorian girl doing some Christmas baking. She is wearing a red and white dress, a white scarf tied over her hair and a much-too-large blue and white gingham apron that probably belongs to her mother. The girl is using a wooden spoon to stir ingredients in a large wooden bowl. A cookbook pinned open to a recipe for Plum Pudding is on the counter behind the girl. The message on the card is: Best Christmas Wishes. The card is unsigned but I believe the illustrator was Ellen Clapsaddle.
