I'm dreaming of a GREEN Christmas!
I'd be ecstatic with a sunny & warm Christmas...but here in Ohio, that won't happen...unless by some freak of nature, which would be quite welcome! So, since Christmas will be the same gloomy, cold weather as always here, we had to settle for our little Christmas tree decorated with our Santa in the Sunshine ornament collection. The photo shows a small part of the collection...the warm weather Santas take up an entire side of the tree & it makes us happy to see them.
The traditional Christmas tree has made it's appearance here for the first time since we moved to Ohio from sunny Southern CA in October 2004. Our previous Christmas tree was the kitschy faux palm tree you see above. LOVE it!!! In fact, it stays up all year long as our "lamp" by the front door. Hey...a girl's gotta have a bit of CA in her life no matter where she lives!
May your Christmas & New Year's be warm & bright...and full of love & happiness.
I've always been an artist...from as far back as I can remember, I loved to create and share my art. My current passions include quilting, altered art, paper arts and making charms for jewelry.
I'm a CA girl at heart, having lived in San Diego & Corona, CA for most of my adult life, but now find myself in NE Ohio & not thrilled with that! You'll hear a LOT of whining about OH here...it's a nasty place to live.
I currently live in the 1954 bungalow that I grew up in with my sweetie & love of my life, Phil, and our very spoiled kitty, Sunny Cat. We miss our dear sweet Sophie Cat, but Sunny has brought new love into our lives. Now we've rescued 3 kittens that were born in our backyard, so Fluffer, Gracie & Peanut are also part of our family...and they're as cute as can be. More cats = more love! We're hanging in here & doing the best we can.
