Krismasi Njema!



christmas bird 

Sing hey!  Sing hey!
For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For friendship glows
In winter snows,
And so let's all be jolly!

I send love and hugs and the warmest of wishes from my world to yours for the most wonderful Christmas ever!

A Merry Christmas to you too and hoping your new year is full of laughter, joy, and wealth. From a Canadian blogger who lives in a valley area where it hasn't snowed yet since we are protected by the escarpment. I want snow!

Beautiful photos!

It was even white for a few days here in Italy, but now grey and very blustery. Great time to stay in by the fire and stuff yourself with goodies. Great Norfolk landscape. All the best to you and you love.

I hope you are all settled into your new Norfolk home? From the pictures you share here -- that heavenly coastline! -- it looks as if you will have lots of fresh inspiration. Your more African palette (that wonderful hot pink!) is refreshing, too, but in a different way.

Happy New Year to you and yours, Tessa!

Renee said...

Merry Christmas darling. A post from you does my heart good.

I want you to know that my Mom is not doing well at all. She is in the hospital right now and the painting of your wise men is on her wall surrounded by pictures of her great grandchildren.

Oh Tessa she loves it.

I received some special gifts too darling. Thank you.

But mostly I feel that you are here today and that makes me happy.

Love Renee xoxoxo

Renee said...

Darling Tessa my Mom takes great comfort in the wise men. She loves them.

She is not doing to well right now but asked me to send you her love.

So I am sending you the love of a very wonderful woman.
