I posted this postcard way back in 2009. I was perusing through my collection, when I found it again. I remember the day I was scanning some of Grammie's treasured card and postcard collection into the computer. That's when I found this precious postcard.
At first I thought it was for Christmas, because of Santa and his Sleigh arching their way over the house. But then I noticed the trees were covered with pink blooms--and that Santa and his Reindeer were drawn onto the card.
Looking closer, I immediately recognized our Grammie's artistic styling. She had doodled over a stain on the card! If you notice, the little red Santa is dangling a bag of toys from his sleigh. What a wonderful, whimsical imagination she had. She would doodle faces and various scenes on cards, scrap paper, envelopes, old letters. I'm so glad I found this precious treasure and recognized it for what it was.
I adore the simplicity of line she used to create those sweet little Reindeer. I like to think I inherited some of my artistic talent from our dear little Grammie. And so, this morning I have chosen to share her sweet artwork with you--with a merry Christmas to one and all. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
