Happy Holidays

Hi Everybody!

Thanks for  all the birthday greetings, digital and
postal which made me happy these past days.
I enjoyed a wonderful day in company of good friends,
and received some great presents from near and
far, which I will show in my TSFT post next week.

Today I am sharing some winter/Christmas art
made in previous years, and often using photos
 taken here, to wish you all happy holidays,
and a peaceful and blessed time with those
you love:

Enjoy the season, and time spent with others.
Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  7. These pages are gorgeous, and the quotes paired with them are perfect. Winter is most definitely not my season, but I can almost enjoy it looking at your beautiful artwork, though I'm counting the days until I see a little robin outside my window. Happy Holidays to you.
