Christmas Blessings, Christmas Lillies and Gifts Given

Christmas card for someone special!

A Christmas vignette
on our antique dresser

And this is what we celebrate -
The birth of Christ-
a Christian Avatar

Mother and Child

with some gifts to share
to celebrate
the birth

and to remember the lovely friends we have
in our lives for whom we are very grateful!

and to be able to pick these most fragrant
Christmas Lillies
to fill our home
whilst we celebrate this festive season.

a handmade wreath from our home-grown
Wisteria, gum nuts, pine cones
and holly 

as well as these beautiful leaves and foiliage
which grows naturally on our property -
Wild Cherry and Pittosproum
with it dark green glossy leaves and tiny
fragrant flowers.

Wishing all blogging friends, old and new a most joyous and peaceful Festive Season
 tranquility whilst we share precious
time with friends and family.

Thank you all dear friends for your continued support
throughout the year -
you mean so much to me.

with love,
Suzy xxx

  44. Hi, Suzy
    Thank you for coming to visit my blog and photos of my doll collection.
    I never dreamed I could sculpt a doll face onto a cloth doll using Creative Paper Clay...but the doll making class that Jane Des Rosier offered on her Cloth and Clay doll ning site beginning in the fall of 2008 had me thinking I just might be able to do it. And it was so richly rewarding when I made that doll...tedious work but so amazing.
    I did post photos of the doll I made in her class. I do hope to make more!
    Most of the dolls in my collection made by other doll makers, have a soft cloth doll body with the special technique of layering clay over the doll's head, torso, and hands and feet. If you go to Stampington.com you will see Art Doll Quarterly magazine available where many doll makers send in their dolls to be photographed for the magazine.
    Have a very blessed New Year~

  45. I am sitting here, on New Year's Day,taking in the beauty of this post. The breathtaking photography that matches the breathtaking artwork. You never cease to amaze me with the depth of your talent.
    Warmest Wishes for 2012.


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
