Pretty Things, Lovely Ruby

Nice and quiet day after Christmas...... following a perfectly lovely holiday.  A week ago I had a few friends over for some Christmas cheer and hooking... and began new little pillow for Valentine's and spring I call "Bluebirds of Happiness".  I finished the hooking and prodding today, but it still needs to be stuffed and sewn up.

So excited to receive a package today from my fav Julie Whitmore.  I've collected a few pieces of her pottery.... and am totally captivated by her paintings.  She listed a selection of prints... and I fell for this circus scene.

I really should have taken a better closeup of this one, but adore the little fox in the center.  You can see a great shot of it on her blog.  Julie sent a super happy surprise gift with it.

Such a sweet Christmas and winter scene!  I love Julie's use of color, especially the rich royal blues.  Here's a shot of my Christmasy decorated mantel with my new print.

Okay...  on to a couple of gratuitous shots of happy grandparents (that would be hubby and I) with our 6 month old Ruby.

Best part of Christmas!

Hello Dear Dulcy
Coming by here tonight was so much fun because I have missed you but seeing your pics with your adorable Ruby put the biggest smile on my face. Ruby is so beautiful like her grandmother.
I love your prints too from Julie.
Isn't her work wonderful. I love her pieces.
My blogging days have slowed down to about once a month because of my computer. I have to break down and buy another one because I do miss my blog buddies.
Hope you have a very Happy New Year
