Happy Salutations! 
It's a busier-busy week 
full of family fun and schedules, 
but pause for a moment
and consider a small tableau
from me...

Gray and white
for the hourglass and rocking horse.


It spoked to me in white...


A silver hue planned for later.

The Yuletide picnic
 with a lumberjack...who's in?

A Snowdrift Christmas

The Scots 
are back in town.

Thanks for visiting.

Welcome to another week,
just before the other week
of that one glorious day.

Open the door.

The Scots arrive and leave their best. shall live forever.

A bit of merry 
is added to the sideboard.
Additionally, and just because, the top right print is a Klimt. 
The world associates the artist with gold squares, circles and particular women...such a soft, muted departure.  
No, it's unfortunately not an original. 

Behind the candles and pine cones,
King Lear in the Storm, 
George Romney.

A little sparkle and shine,

Kris Kringle and tassels,

berries and greenery,

ribbons and horns,

to honor 

First Christmas Family.

Amid the 
happy splendor, 
give thanks for the
