1959 vintage calendar page
There are so many sweet details in this picture, but the best way for you to see them is just to click on the picture to enlarge it. (I tried making it a larger size, but that cut some of the details out and that just wasn't a good thing, to my mind.) The eyeglasses and book -- maybe a Bible, maybe a nature journal?; the plant in the window -- likely a poinsettia; the grandfather clock; even the cute homemade ornaments on the tree. I remember making those woven heart baskets like those with students at the small Christian school where I helped out. I brought in craft materials and simple patterns, and the kids worked on Christmas ornaments during their breaks all through December.
Hope you've enjoyed this little vintage calendar page as much as I did and that it may have brought back some memories for you as it did for me.
