Square Books - Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I can finally let you in on what I've been creating the past few weeks. :) This is Dad's Christmas present - for the new Oxford condo. For those of you familiar with "The Square" in Oxford you will hopefully know what this is...for those that don't...this is one of the 'landmarks.'

...and the cards were hung by the chimney with care...

I am off to celebrate Christmas. I hope each and every one of you have a great holiday visiting with family and old friends. I was thinking today about how VERY lucky I am. I am so very blessed. There isn't much more a girl can ask for...bring on 2009.

Christmas Joy!

Allison and Michael received QUITE the Chrismtas gift this year....little Riley. I made a quick (minus a few dozen expected shopping detours on the way home) trip with Nancy today to meet the precious boy. Isn't he fabulous? If it was up to me, I would have taken hundreds of pictures of him. My camera thought otherwise. I had a dead battery. Here is one of the shots I did manage to get...

He is one lucky little boy. His mother, Allison, gave me the most thoughtful and wonderful gift this year.... Just last week I was thinking, "I have ruined most every t-shirt with oil paint." Thanks to Allison that will be the end of that. She must have read my old post. Here is me modeling the painting apron. I love it Allison, thank you! Excuse the photo timer picture. It was the best I could do after I charged the battery.

The painting I am working on is coming along wonderfully and I can't wait to share it!

Happy Holidays

Christmas is right around the corner and I am a very busy elf. Elves don't give out their secrets until after the gifts are given. So for now, I will leave you with my favorite Christmas picture I took year before last in New York. Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
