A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near,
A little gift from one held dear,
Best wishes for the coming year.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier

Hello and hello

Where did the 2010 go? It seems like I turned around and zing, here we are in December looking at another January.

I am very grateful for all the kind notes and words of encouragement through out the year. Thanks to everyone who bought my Christmas paper toy book. I have a favor to ask, if you have a blog or are on Facebook could you post a link to it? It would be a gift.

Wishing you wonderful things in the coming year, best friends, time with the people you love, good health and and a generous helping of peace and quiet,

Best thoughts,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home! ~Charles Dickens
