the greeting on my front door and i am wishing everyone just that
let's hope that it is peaceful and calm and safe, take care !
i am just going to share with you some visions of christmas that i have snapped over the last few weeks
these are just in this house that i have called home for the last 6 years
i have enjoyed this and up to day 22 of course today !
friends have gathered
kris kringle ! and what do you think was in this box, some people and you know who you are deidre !!! are very lucky ! but they went to the right person who will treasure and admire all the work of the very creative denise ! i offered to swap all sorts, but to no avail !
the white rabbit
the queen of hearts
tweedle dee and tweedle dum.............and there was more !
and the caterpillar ! all made by denise and with such detail and oh so beautiful !
and together in the box !
there were other lovely gifts too !
then earlier in the year i did a post 'snippets from the shoebox' at trish's home and i went back to take some 'christmas snippets' ! the shoebox is full of christmas to share with the family and friends
the entire space, though only small, is where trish creates her work that is loved by
so many, no need for words, hope you enjoyed the pictures
thankyou for reading my thoughts and sharing in the activities that we all love, merry
christmas and good wishes to those who pop in here and take part, i am just going to have a quiet time before i need to find a new place to call home !
time for me to do some thinking and reading and then into action
always remember to slow down in life;
live, breathe and learn;
take a look around you
whenever you have time
and never forget
everything and every person
that has a place within
twelve things to remember
the value of time
the success of perserverance
the pleasure of working
the dignity of simplicity
the worth of character
the power of kindness
the influence of example
the obligation of duty
the wisdom of economy
the virtue of patience
the joy of originality
the beauty of cheeriness
from the country woman in n.s.w. australia
henry van dyke
use the talents you possess,
for the woods would be a very silent place
if no birds sang except the best.
we can do no great things,
only small things with great love.
