".. from my ragged heart to yours"

December 27, 2009

*~It's A Wrap~*

Dearest Friends,

May your days always be

Merry And Bright...

May you still believe in Santa, Frosty,
and the Magic that surrounds

May you not be too eager
to put Christmas away...

Still keeping handy those twinkling eyes,
your generous spirit
quick to give and give..

And your heart expecting something or someone
beyond your wildest imagination to arrive
and fill up the empty crib inside your heart.

Stay wrapped up in the warmth of cozy friends
and loving wishes...

Let beauty in the open windows of your soul...

Keeping your heart young and full of delights...

Have peaceful moments with those you love...

Be ready and willing to have a little merriment
now and then.

From my house to yours
I wish you New Years Blessings
for a Magical ~ Spiritual
Christmas Season that never ends.

Pictures taken by me, many from wonderful Leolas (which you really should get
over there  and visit because the store looks fabulous). 
Mark took the picture of Sophie and me.  The sparkle
house was a gift Linda sent to me!

that post was beautiful! I know many people have taken down Christmas and put it all away, but I'm still enjoying the cozy glow of Christmas lights until New Year.

Patti said...

what a beautiful post!!! and I agree, it's important to remember the reason for the season and to keep the magic of Santa and giving and being together!

love your pictures & love that you like to take them at Leola's. Loved the coffee cake you and Mark brought to me. You're such good friends. Would love for you & Dulcy to come one morning this week (except Mon.) & have coffee. Let me know if it's possible. Jan

Hope you and yours are enjoying the holidays! Thanks for stopping by the manor today. Hope to see you again soon!

OK, I've already commented once, but this has to be the perfect post for expressing - with both words and fabulously beautiful photos - the sentiments I share for the time of year. I think I'll just copy the whole thing:) Or, maybe put a link to yours.
btw, your studio, your house... can't possibly be as messy as mine!!! shall we have a contest and offer up a prize? ha.
