Merry Christmas!

Mom always does a nice spread when we go to her house for the Holidays. My Sister gave her the vintage Christmas table cloth.She got it at "Right to The Moon Alice", a vintage clothing online shop.They just happen to be her neighbor, too!
There is Ben, watching us.
YUM! Trifle for dessert!
This morning, I put some new things on my Etsy shop. Now that we are just about through with 2010, it's time to reflect and plan for the new year. Jeffrey made this meditation bench and I painted it with a mermaid. Look...she's even doing a mudra gesture. The bench tilts forward for comfortable seating. Namaste.
I used to paint hundreds of these back in the 80's and someone gave me a few dozen to play with. So here they are! I call them tooth fairy boxes, or they can be used for your daily vitamins.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. We are to get a big storm tonight. It always fun to hunker down in Connecticut with the folks during a storm! Let's eat ,drink and be merry! Stay safe !
