Merry Christmas!

2014-Christmas-Card

My grandmother’s aunt, Elizabeth Stroble, created this beautiful linoleum block print when she lived in St.Paul, Minnesota (1940s-1950s). Carved with the help of her students, she sent these to family and friends as her Christmas card. This is one of a dozen or so poster “cards” I have and cherish. It reads:

rejoice in love we all may share
rejoice in beauty everywhere
rejoice in hope of good to be
rejoice in truth that makes us free

I hope your Christmas is filled Hope, Love, Truth, and Beauty. Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas!

Susan
