A week before Christmas....

...and doing what I like to do best. It doesn't get better than that. Away from the shopping, listening to the best of
Christmas music from Europe and North America on CBC2 and painting. A rare moment for sure....
This painting is 98% finished, and now I'll set it aside and let it "simmer" until it can be fine tuned and then varnished.
...and on the to the next while I still have a little time left before it gets busy again.....

Maggie and My Christmas Card

I was thrilled when I came across this vintage German postcard of dachshunds sledding. The reason being is my own little
Maggie so closely resembles this is my Christmas card this year!....and here is Maggie.

A lot like Christmas.....

It's the lead up to Christmas that I long as I remember to stop and enjoy it. It's a sensory trip and taking these
pictures help me to enjoy it when it seems that I'm rushing around so much.

This past weekend....

Well Friday was horrible weather wise. A mixture of rain and ice all day long. Power outages everywhere and quite a few trees came down. We were without power from 5 p.m. until 10. a.m.....and cold!.... An impromptu trip
to Ottawa on Saturday though turned the mood around. The market had all the Christmas trees and wreaths to choose from and so brought our front door wreath home. Much nicer to buy one that way than to go to the home renovation store I was going to buy from. Sunday, went into the city (Montreal) and it was like a movie set. Twilight and everyone was walking around in a steady snowfall. Store windows were beautiful. A coffee at a bookstore after visiting the One-of-a-Kind gift show at the Bonaventure Hotel.....and was totally inspired. All very high end hand made items.....and then home. So the weekend turned out amazingly well.
