Merry Christmas to One & All!

Merry Christmas everyone!
Thought I would write a quick post before I am off and running!
This is a favorite shelf of mine.
It greets us as we walk into our mudroom at the back door.

My little Christkindlmarket village that I have collected over the years. 

And my German lead deer and a favorite cross stitch pillow.
Design by Primitive Stitchin by Shelley Auen.

I love to have lots of poinsettias around this time of year and this was a favorite.

So was this one. I guess I love variegated leaves and petals.

We took a quick trip to southern California last week and this was what I packed to bring with.  

I haven't stitched much this month, but made a little progress.

I thought that I would end with a few of the trees that I saw in California.

So pretty and festive, no matter the climate!

This one just screamed California to me ;)

And this beauty was next to the outdoor ice rink.
Outdoor ice rink?!?! In southern California?!?! Oh my!

This was my favorite - at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
But that is another story for another day...

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
~Luke 2:6-7

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas wherever you are in the world...

Blessings, Patti

Next year plan a trip to Asheville to visit the Biltmore House at Christmas--it is breath taking. (And then drive over to SassyJacks for some shopping, eat lunch in Weaverville)
