This miniature ornament features a lightweight gold-toned frame with a treasure on each side. On the front is a hand-cropped mini print of my Writer Mouse image in sepia tones.

On the back of the ornament is a micro found poem: the phrase


is contagious,

be merry

For this one day,
be merry with heart

has been highlighted in original text clipped from an unattributed editorial section called "Merry Christmas" in GOLDEN DAYS For Boys and Girls, Vol. XVIII -- No. 6, December 26, 1896, Philadelphia: James Elverson, Publisher. The ornament hangs from an Italian velvet millinery ribbon from the 1930s/40s.

Ornament size: approx. 2 1/2 in. by 1 1/2 in.
(Each image covered with clear plastic.)
Note - this listing is for one ornament; others are pictured in photos to show fronts and backs.
