A small tabletop Christmas tree stands proudly with lit candles on its branches. Nearby sits a child’s hobby horse waiting to be found on Christmas morning. This charming Christmas image does have a bit of a watermark from the page behind it but we have little doubt that can easily be made part of your artwork or removed with photo editing software.
