...............have been with me my entire adult life....... they've even crossed oceans with me........ I painted them when i was pregnant all those long years ago and they have followed me everywhere. They have yellowed some with age (Mr. a little more than Mrs .. not sure why)but i find i like them that way. Santa has a very mellow appearance . If i were to paint them today i would probably paint them different. I would pay more attention to the details........ but they were painted by my 18 yr old self.
...........And now they are here with me celebrating Christmas in CA. They help to make it feel like home. Our holiday celebrations have turned a corner and they may never be the same. We are feeling a little home sick. Thanksgiving and Christmas for the last 20 years was always spent at Hubby's mothers...... Surrounded by friends and family of at least a dozen or more .... and now that we have moved and hubby's mom has passed things are a little more sedate. But we will find our way..... we always do. Theres lots of love in this big house. Even if it is feeling a little lonely right now.
We wish for you a Magickal Christmas! Surrounded by all those you love! Hold them close. Hold them dear. Because life changes.... nothing ever stays the same even if you think it always will. Savor the moment.. Hugs! deb
