Children will tell you it's never too early or late to think about Christmas. So here is our little addition to the Winter/Christmas season with a portion of a vintage page from a 1912 Howe Reader.

The poem reads:

Little fairy snow-flakes
Dancing in the flue;
Old Mr. Santa Claus,
What is keeping you?
Twilight and firelight
Shadows come and go;
Merry chime of sleigh-bells
Tinkling through the snow;
Mother knitting stockings,
Pussy's got the ball,
Don't you tink that winter's
Pleasanter than all?

This sweet chippy off white wood glass encased frame has a handmade Christmas tree with burlap that add to the whimsicalness of the season. The vintage poem is beautifully aged and has torn edges.

Other vintagy looking scrapbook paper adds to the sweetness of this frame. Sweet gift for a special friend or even for yourself. Just tuck it away for next Christmas.

8 1/2" x 6 1/2" ready to hang or could sit on your own easel. Tie a ribbon on it and hang from your Christmas tree as a decoration. Will even be adorable hanging from a peg.
