"It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'til his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little something more."  -  Dr Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

  11. Happy Christmas Robyn, we are on the Island early this year and will be home for Christmas, I think we will quietly retreat as we are not used to being around family. Sounds selfish and perhaps it is but these days I find all those children too much, shows I am getting old, looking forward to more posts from you in 2015

    1. Annie, Digby has gone to a wonderful home (with no other dogs) on a large small holding in the country. We are delighted because he needs the space to get rid of all his pent up energy.
      Bella had surgery again yesterday. The infection returned so they had to cut away scar tissue which was trapping the infection in little pockets under the skin. She is the bravest, most uncomplaining little dog. The vets are extremely impressed with her because she takes everything without a whimper. Today she is much improved so fingers crossed for her full recovery.

  32. I,too, miss your posts. But I am grateful for all the images you share at the other place! I feel sometimes like I am following along your path, and you are pointing:"Look! See?!" Delightful, and often thought provoking. You lead where I might never have occasion to discover! and I thank you. Hope you're well, and happy. Take care!

  33. I'm enjoying the ease of pinning and tumblring but one of these days I will blog again. It's great to have that communication with fellow artists on my blog. Thanks so much for keeping in touch Mary Jo and Rossichka. All is well here. I've been working hard getting ready for a few exhibitions. Are you on Face Book? I usually post art news there though it's not quite the same as blogging.
