DESCRIPTION

Falling gently, all about, the snow brings a rosy glow to cheeks and noses. Against the white, the scarlet of holly berries stands a bold reminder that there is still life in the cold. This vintage inspired tam is full of fun bobbles and charming lace. A wonderful accessory for everything from fireside laughter with friends to dream-like sleigh rides with the one you love.
