Description

This poem will printed out and SHIPPED to you UNFRAMED. The gift items/basket are not included.

From the Classic Christmas Movie, It's a Wonderful Life, this is a unique home blessing poem printed and physically shipped to you in the mail. Include it with a homemade gift of a loaf of bread, salt, and a bottle of wine. If you like to gift heartfelt homemade gifts, this is a great starting point. For the housewarming, all you need is this poem, a basket, a nice loaf of bread, some fancy sea salt, and a bottle of wine. I took some pictures of a whole basket to give you some idea of what it will look like. You can make the WHOLE GIFT for less than $25.

This design is original to our shop- you won't find it anywhere else! The new home blessing has been designed in teal, red, and dark brown colors. We will print this item out for you on high quality linen paper in almond (off-white). More details about the paper below.

If you want to print this yourself at home purchase the downloadable option here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/269206685/

Several options to choose from:

1- Classic poem, begins with "To my friend"
2- Classic poem, begins with "In celebration" (great option for family, coworkers, etc)
3- Extended version includes honey & olive oil (and the wording and order is different)
4- Iconic bread salt wine poem design

The Bread, Salt, Wine poem reads:
[To my friend] - optional
"In celebration of your new home
Bread - that this house may never know hunger
Salt - that life will always have flavor
Wine - that joy and prosperity may reign forever
Congratulations"

The extended version reads
"In celebration of your new home
Bread - May those in your home never go hungry
Wine - May you always have joy and never go thirsty
Salt - May there always be flavor and spice in your life
Honey - May you always enjoy the sweetness of life
Olive Oil - May you be blessed with health and well-being

A NOTE ON FRAMING
Please note that this listing is for the UNFRAMED home blessing poem. To save our customers on shipping costs and to create an opportunity for custom displays, a frame is NOT included, it is only used in the photos to demonstrate how best to display your new artwork.

About the paper
We use an almond colored heavy weight textured linen resume paper (32lb). It's a beautiful, high quality resume paper made from 100% cotton. There's a very light Southworth watermark on the paper which is "a symbol of the finest quality made according to time-honored craftsmanship" -- most high quality archival paper has a watermark.

*Please note that we are only mailing you an unframed print of the poem. The frame, basket and basket items are not included in your purchase.

Dimensions
Outer: Approx: 8.5" x 11" (can be easily cut to 8x10" if you choose to do so)

CUSTOMIZATION
We are no longer offering customization of this item. While we appreciate the requests, there's only so much that we can do with our [limited] time and busy schedule. So, we've decided to concentrate that time on personalized picture frames rather than personalizing the home blessings. Perhaps in the future we'll be able to bring this back. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, and thank you so much for stopping by.
-Amy & Clyde

FAQs

Yes — most of our items already offer personalization options right in the listing (color, custom text, photo orientation).

Custom requests do take a bit longer to make and cost on average 25% more than if you were to purchase one of our standard sizes. And as much as we’d like to take on all custom projects and requests, there are times where we cannot.

If you have a request that’s completely custom please contact us.
Sometimes yes, but in most cases no. Our items are custom made and not mass produced. Generally we use pine for our home decor and birch for our ornaments. However, the wood type, degree of weathering, knots, grain, markings, color, texture and overall dimensions can vary. Each piece of wood is different and reacts differently to stain, paint and wood burning techniques, which will make your purchase completely unique and one-of-a-kind.
Our frames typically include piece(s) of .040 PETG, Clear Styrene/Plexiglass to protect your photos. The clamping system may leave scuffs in your photo underneath the clamp -- the plexiglass will prevent this from happening. While it's not necessary, if your photo is valuable or sentimental, we recommend it. You can use a piece of glass from an old frame instead -- that will work fine, too!
After purchasing a digital file, you’ll see a View your files link which goes to the Downloads page. Here, you can download all the files associated with your order.

Downloads are available once your payment is confirmed. If you paid with PayPal or a credit card on Etsy, confirmation might take a few minutes.

We’ll also send you a download notification email separate from any transaction notification emails you receive from Etsy and/or PayPal.

This is a great question and we urge you to ask this when buying any product that is made from reclaimed wood. Reclaimed lumber needs to be handled with care since it's often left outside for YEARS before we find it.

All of our reclaimed wood is cleaned, sanded and sealed with polyurethane so your frame will last. We scrub the wood clean with a mild antibacterial soap. Then, we steam the wood at high temperatures to sterilize it so it's safe for your home. After sanding and applying any finish, we seal our wood with matte polyurethane for extra protection.

Please read our blog post for more info https://cecilandlynn.com/reclaimedwood/
Yes. If you need a size that’s not listed, we can often accommodate custom requests (as our schedule allows).

Custom requests do take a bit longer to make and cost on average 25% more than if you were to purchase one of our standard sizes. And as much as we’d like to take on all custom projects and requests, there are times where we cannot.

Please note that we only carry plexiglass up to 8x10" in size so if you have a large picture you may need to source your own glass to protect the photo.
We gladly accept returns on non-personalized and non-custom orders that are returned in their original condition. Contact us within 7 days of delivery to request a return. Your purchase must be shipped back within 14 days of delivery.

We do not refund custom orders or personalized items made just for you. We do not refund shipping costs and the buyer must pay the return shipping on the item(s) being returned.

Contact us if your item is damaged during shipping as we insure all of our packages.

What’s wrong with this listing?
