TIS THE SEASON...FA LA LA LA LA LA...LA LA LA LA

Yes, it's that time of year when we sing holiday songs as we work and we decorate and we clean house for company and we mail packages...and, all the other fa la la la things that sometimes keep us from our easels...WELL, at least it is that way for this household! WHEW!  I've got the last Paxton portrait up on my easel patiently waiting for his Nana to apply paint to canvas...and I will...as soon as I mail the last package and do some grocery shopping and finish decorating the tree! sheesh!  but, FUN DOINS all the same...SO...I thought I'd share some fun decor with you...(an also to prove I haven't been sitting on my rear end just watching old reruns of desperate housewives) (though there has been an episode or two)

If you knew me you'd say "Saundra, I see a few new things...but...basically it's the same"...yep...my house looks a little Christmassy most of the year...I have a favorite Santa (I collect them) that has been on the shelf for a couple years...
to me he just looks like a colorful mountain man just coming in from a hike :) and he goes with my tree collection...:)

and, there is always a bit of greenery...though for the season I sprinkled a bit of holly berry in for good measure...

and, I love red birds...but I admit I don't leave out the birds that say "Merry Christmas"...but I DO leave out my photos of Paxton!
One of my favorite pics of him...looks like he is either whistling or saying "OOOOHHHHH Nana...your house is FUN" tee hee

I'm thinking of family as I put out my wonderful Santas...like this little guy that was carved from an old wooden thread spool...a favorite gift from my mom and dad one year...
My dad isn't doing to well this year...but we are hoping to have him a bit longer...We're praying for you my dad!!  
So, as I leave you today...I wish for the red bird of happiness to light upon all of your shoulders...and I'm hoping the holiday season is giving you a little time for rest among the creative work you are doing either in or out of the studio!  HAPPY CREATING!!
