Gifts of Nature

Oh my but isn’t this little girl the cutest? With her long eyelashes and rosy cheeks, it’s easy to see why Ellen H. Clapsaddle included her as one of the true Gifts of Nature.

This vintage Thanksgiving Day Card from Clapsaddle features this little cutie wrapped in branches of wheat and surrounded by red, blue and yellow flowers – a fine example of nature’s bountiful gifts. Wearing a wide-brimmed, straw hat and carrying a rake; she is just the epitome of sweetness.

The message on the card reads as follows:

Best Thanksgiving Wishes
The Gifts of Nature are worth
their weight in Gold.
