This petit porcelain Nativity set was a gift from my son last Christmas. I decided that it would be the inspiration for the center piece on my table this year. It makes me smile throughout the day, every time I walk by it. The innocence not only of the figurines, but of my own child who chose this special gift just for me warms my heart.

Join some of us on Red Friday when we will be updating our Etsy shops with red hot handmade holiday specials.
Tracy, of The Vintage Sister Studio, dreamed up this fabulous idea and we've got a delectable group of artists. Just click on the badge on my side bar or the large badge above to find what shops are participating.
I am personally offering free shipping from now until December 20th on all my merchandise in my shop and will be listing some new prints of my Angel Flower Girls, gift embellishments, and new photographs some of which I made in Cabo San Lucas last week!
So, get a comfy chair, put you glasses on (if you need them), grab a cup of hot mulled cider, peruse the beautiful art by these talented women on Etsy, and of course stay out of the malls and buy handmade.
Ciao amici e buon natale,

We are home from a beautiful and relaxing and fun vacation (..."business" trip to the IRS, of course). I have lots of photographs to show you ~ I took over 400 (crazy, I know). There was a riot of colour, beautiful architecture, folk art, scrumptious food, and lovely people.
For now, while I sort through my photographs and work on some new Christmas items for my Etsy shop, please make your self comfortable and have a seat...
Wrought Iron Bench, Yellow Wall
San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur
or enjoy this gorgeous view of the rocky Pacific Coast and shoreline...
or dive in!
We loved this place.
Wrought Iron Candelabra, Entrance of Esperanza Resort
