Emmanuel - God with us! It is my deepest wish that all of you will feel the presence of God not only during this blessed season but the coming New Year.
P.S. This is my last post of the year. Thank You for making my 2014 lovely by all your precious visits. I will be looking forward to catching up with each one in January. Merry Christmas and Happy 2015.

How about you? Are you ready?
Don't let me keep you if you are not. I certainly understand.
May everyone stay safe as they finish preparing for the arrival of this special day.

Some are beloved ornaments hanging on the tree.
I am reminded of the giver. Some are gone now. Some live far away.
Time and circumstance comes to each of us. Not all things remain the same. Even some of these treasures have become cracked and worn. They just serve as reminders. What remains is the warm joy of remembering the love and thoughtfulness that was shared. The true Christmas treasures are always my memories.
I hope you are enjoying some of those too!
Have a delightful week.

It just would not be the Christmas season without viewing "It's a Wonderful Life."
This moon reminded me of the scene where George tells Mary he will lasso the moon for her.
There are many precious moments in the movie. This particular one is a favorite of mine.
If for some reason someone reading this post has never seen this movie I hope you will put in on your list of must sees! For certain you will not be disappointed.

This furry friend of mine has been my latest muse. Have done several drawings as well as a watercolor painting of him. Used graphite and watercolor pencil on a Studio 71 sketch pad. Very little water was used so the paper wouldn't buckle.
|5" x 7"|
A photo of a single daisy blooming among some larkspur inspired this small watercolor sketch. It was painted on a Strathmore Ready Cut Watercolor Sheet - hot press. These come in packages of 25. Very nice size for outdoor work or to take along when one is traveling.
Well hope everyone is having a lovely week.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit.
Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
