Christmas With Family Circle

Christmas through the years with great December covers from Family Circle magazine. Theirs is another publication that I have subscribed to for many, many years. I like it well enough that I have never stopped my subscription - and it also helps that it is less expensive than many of the others I like. Are these vintage covers precious, or what? 1949:
1950:

1952:
And here we have 1956- with cover art by one of my favorites (yes, I'm aware you knew that already!) Walt Disney "And Staff". Tina gave me this one - she knew I'd be delighted!
And what have we here? Another favorite artist's cover - from the great Norman Rockwell(1967):
And the most recent one:

They still put out a nice magazine with a pretty cover - and I'm still reading them.

I have always loved Family Circle, also. Great ideas, recipes, etc. A great 'family' magazine at a great price!

GREAT vintage Christmas covers! Thanks for sharing them with us, Heidi!

The latest cover, when compared, just doesn't hold a candle to the older ones. Yet again proving, "They just don't make 'em like they used to..." :(

This magazine reminds me of my mom, she always bought a copy at the grocery store when we were growing up.

Family Circle is such a wonderful tradition! I always am delighted when I find an old one at a sale. I love the one with the Disney cover. The colors are fantastic! Twyla
