That's a gorgeous picture of Isabella & Sam - I know how much you love them!

Sorry you were without heat Mary but glad it's back on now. I know the weather has been bad your way - and was the reason we didn't get to have our planned New York Christmas visit!

Now Christmas has gone and today is Boxing Day for me and all my British family and friends. This was the day we had the most fun when I was a child. Everyone was relaxed as the chaotic Christmas cooking was over and there were plenty of yummy leftovers to tide us over for the day. We'd play outside, walk the country lanes, visit with neighbors and just have a fine time as nobody had to go to work on this day..........and there were definitely no shops open for sales and such!

The best Christmas memories are always the ones of our childhood, don't you think?

Bob and I send love and very best wishes for the coming year. Stay warm.
Your friend - Mary.

I've bought it before but haven't in quite sometime. So I will have to check it again I guess.
Thanks for the prompting.

Mary, I too am planning on getting that magazine after the holidays. I need all the help I can get.
Please keep us all in your prayers today and tomorrow. Pop Benoit died the day after Christmas, the same day as dad and we are all very sad, but he is at peace and not suffering anymore, but it will still be hard for us all. Love and Hugs, Pat

Hi Mary Dear:
Sad about Pat's friend : (
I just absolutely adore the backgrounds you create!!!
I finally started listing my vintage findings on my etsy site : )
You give me much inspiration, my Friend. Thank you
Peace & Love

Hi Mary,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughtful comments. You are right, I know. Every second, minute and day is a precious gift and living for the moment should be appreciated. I will try my best to keep those thoughts when my days get very hectic!!
