~Christmas~ 
that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, 
that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance.
It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting,
or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance
~a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
~Agusta E. Rundel~

 Thank You Debra for being our Gracious Hostess once again!
Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Weekend!

Hi Jill, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed seeing these gorgeous works of art. How did you know the Shortening of Winter Days is one of my very favorite paintings? I'm a "sheep lover" and these old English and French paintings are dear to my heart. So glad you linked up to VIF. Thanks so much for the blessing,
hugs,
Debra

Hi Dear Jill,
Oh your pictures are just stunning and so very peaceful looking. The Christmas poem is especially beautiful, it is so very touching that I had to write it down in my journal.
Have a lovely day~
