Happy Holidays

 
Hi everybody!
I wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.
Enjoy the time together with friends and family.
This is a picture which I have taken from a German Women's Magazine from 1899, and digitally altered.


Have fun, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  7. Hello Valerie, love your teddies and the twinkling Valerie Santa hat. I don't know how you do the twinkling but it's fun. Hope you manage to get a good walk today, it's a bit breezy here.

  18. Hey Valerie - sure wish I could speak in German too! Hope this special time of year is special for you too. Especially since this is your birthday month. The look on that mother's face is like the cat that swallowed the canary. 2014 is going to be a very good year!!
