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:

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

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

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.

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

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. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, and thank you so much for stopping by.
