Seasons Greetings!

Sending you wishes of peace and calm during the holiday season.

I find tranquility by going outside and taking in nature's beauty. This is my "CHRISTMAS ROSE." I discovered it's full bloom on Christmas morning.

Mother Nature brought me a splash of orange in the form of a lily against my weathered fence on Christmas morning.

Mother Nature knows what a California girl I am and how I enjoy my sunshine so she brought me some on Christmas day. And because you can't have everything, I still had to deal with cold air. But I'm not complaining cause I've seen what some of my blogger friends are going through and this is nothing compared to those freezing temps!

Christmas in Los Angeles came and went quickly. How about where you live? Hope you all had a good day spent it doing whatever brings you happiness. Peace to all.

Love your tag :)

Yes, that's true, Sherry. We gotta make the best of each day cause we won't get it back once it's gone. Happy New Year to you!

Stampmaiden said...

Lisa, great to see you! I'm happy to hear you had a marvelous Christmas! Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
Happy New Year!

Your Christmas hanger is beautiful!

Hope your Christmas was too!

Stampmaiden said...

Thanks, Marianne! My Christmas was as great as the weather we had. I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season. Happy New Year. Hope it's filled with loads of art in the mail!

Stampmaiden said...

Yes Soul, tranquility somehow doesn't match up with the 4th, does it?! LOL!! Well, we've got to make the best of what's left of our hoiday time. How lucky are we that we get so many days off?!
Enjoy the remaining days...

I'm glad you had a super Christmas Linda. I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year and lots of scrummy artiness! We've been frozen in since the Monday before Christmas Day! Today it's raining so I hope most of the ice will go at last. I want to go to the sales!!

Much love to you and yours.
