a christmas card from jackie



I was very excited when I found this scan of a Christmas card from Jacqueline Onassis. Everything about it is lovely, from her red-bordered stationary and use red ink to the charming note written on the card (which reads: “So much love to Provy at Christmas.”). Wouldn’t you have loved to receive a Holiday card from Jackie?

Yes, I'd be delighted! The hearts that she drew look like they are part of the card's design, what an eye she had! (Or maybe they are part of the card?)

Eva Whitney-- I know! I love those little hearts... I bet she drew them herself. So cute :)

People with effortlessly cool handwriting kill me - so jealous of her loopy but sketchy scrawl!
