To Keep the Chaps Away -Guest Heart Thursday

I giggled when I read the note on the back of this lovely Christmas postcard.  It is addressed to Miss Mary Kersam, and the message goes like this:

When Mary walks abroad up North
She looks so sweet and gay
She has to put on lip-salve
To keep the chaps away

The fellow who wrote this poem was clearly smitten.  Fittingly, this fair lady, awaiting a kiss beneath the mistletoe, has donned a dress with a sleeve in the perfect shape of a heart.

For more heart art, photography and altogether fabulous heart stuff from around the world, visit Clytie at Random Hearts for Guest Heart Thursday.
