Swedish Christmas postcards!


    Ooooh, you guys! I am so happy to be sharing these with you! They've been a long time in the making. And I'm proud of myself for being so early with them :) and while I still have a lot more planned for Christmas, I am happy to now be offering a fancy set of Swedish Christmas postcards in my etsy shop!

   The set includes six cards, with two each of the images shown. The paintings included are God Jul Sisters, St. Lucia and God Jul Tomtes. The backs of all the cards are a pretty deep and festive red and have an extra 'God Jul' (which is Swedish for "Merry Christmas") on the back. 

   Since I've started painting Swedish and Scandinavian themes, I've met a lot of like-hearted people who also have an affinity for tomtes and St. Lucia and the romance and mystery of traditional Swedish Christmas artwork. I love having that connection with people and finding things we have in common. It always leads to great conversations (sometimes screeching "hey, I love dala horses too!!!")

   I know this blog might feel like a little bit of season whiplast at the moment, but I'm just gearing up for what tends to be my busiest time of the year. I'm determined to make this the best one yet! And thank you to those of you who make Audrey Eclectic a part of your home decor, gift giving, and holiday celebrations! You have no idea how much it means to me~

Happy early August God Jul,
~H

  1. Ooh! I loved looking in here and seeing these lovely cards (smiles) they are wonderful, and you know what - I have come to peace with the thought that autumn and winter is about to come. I even feel the magic of it now when the ngihts started so be a bit darker and and...I love the thought - it always makes me somewhat more deep and mysterious in mind and soul, you know - dramaqueen :))) and I feel the very much life and love in it. felt good seeing this cards then - they are really wonderful and extra-special when made in your art...******* wish you could come here some day at midwintertime ***

    love Lycke

  4. Thank you, ladies! I'm so glad you like them! I had to have one of the images reprinted because they came with the back upside down (oops!) but I got the replacements today and like how they turned out! This is just one of my steps into getting more into paper goods, I hope you're all as excited as I am!~
