Christmas Past and Present

My bedroom present.

For the holiday season, vintage angels adorn the gilded framed dragonfly monoprint I created a few years ago in the studio. I love burgundy mixed with cream and

PINK...

My bedroom past.

Always crazy for Christmas, not much has changed. Love dark furniture with textures of velvet and chenille. I still have my musical Santa doll and the ornaments on my tree. And, I still love

PINK...

I can see you were stylish even as a young girl. It is funny the things we still carry over from our youth to present day. I love your dragonfly monoprint you made.

That big grin says it all... Santa has some mighty rosey cheeks... has he been in the egg nog?

Sweet post! How clever adoring that beautiful picture with cherubs. I never would have thought to do that.

Whoever took that picture of you when you were little, really captured the wonderment of Christmas. Thank you for sharing. Happy Holidays!

Your monoprint is beautiful, you are very talented. Did you ever think when you were a little girl that you would be sharing a Christmas photo on a computer for everyone to see? It is so adorable. Love the Santa also.
