St. Patrick’s Day

clapsaddle-st-patricks-dayEllen Clapsaddle. There’s just something about her work that’s timeless. The sweet children’s faces that she so often included in her work are recognizable as her work – particularly combined with charming holiday scenes. In this vintage postcard, it’s typical Clapsaddle. A sweet child, bright colors and holiday greetings; in this case for St. Patrick’s Day.

The child is kneeling on a stool to use the family telephone. Nearby is a basked of what might be hot cross buns or some other holiday treat. The wall calendar shares the date – March 17. The message is short and simple, “Here’s wishing you a bright and happy St. Patrick’s Day.”
