gay and bright

To wish you a Happy Christmas
And a New Year gay and bright
A season full of merriment
Of gladness and delight
"very much love!! Helen Robinson"

This was sent in an envelope, which at the moment I can't find, but I believe it was sent in 1936 or 1934.
the colours are unseasonal for Christmas, but very much art deco

on the reverse side is a plea to hear from the unknown recipient
Did you receive my letter?
Have expected one from you for some time? [sic]
Will write you later.

  1. Wonderful card. Great color -- so modern looking! I always wonder about the people when there is a written message! Happy PFF!

  2. I really like the colour scheme and I've always thought the Art Deco style very attractive. It makes a pleasant change from the bright reds and greens.

  3. I like the color scheme too...and I kinda feel like I'm having a blue Christmas cause the sweetheart is flying to France today...but it's alright :) Blue Christmas is still about that nice chill in the air -- which is a very welcome temperature here in the Philippines where it's almost always humid.

    Happy PFF! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and your family!

  4. They seem more appropriate for Easter colors and not at all right for Christmas. I do want to wish you the happiest of holidays and hope you have a good time in whichever way you spend it. I am a bit closer to you know; at least on the same continent!

  5. What a perfect postcard for Christmas! The colors are a bit strange for Christmas--but I really like that. (grin)

    Merry Christmas and Happy PFF!
