Vintage Christmas Gift Wrap: If Only…

If only Mr. Roger had saved all that wrapping paper from his youth as a mid-century boy. What a collection I’d have!

But, never fear, Mr. Roger found a great online source (via hmdavid on flickr) for his vintage wrapping paper fix. If only we could still buy these patterns today.

This wrapping paper makes me want to start singing: “Toyland, toyland, little girl and boy land…”

This last one has got to be my favorite. So cheerful are the men – young and old – festively preparing and celebrating Christmas…especially the jaunty fellow toting his gifts with a pipe in his mouth!
