Thank you for this beautiful wish and gorgeous illustration. I did get your email, Bron, and want to thank you for your uplifting stories, sharing Violet's journal with us, and for your many visits to my illustraton blog.

The sense of knee deep snow in this illustration is something I long for right now. Walking down steps that you shoveled only an hour before to find them covered once again.... letting you dog pull you through the deeper snow to his favorite tree... wandering back to the house after a long walk and finding the lights on and the cider warm. Your painting does all of this for me. Happy New Year~

This little painting transports me to another place, another time, and another mood...it's what we dream of when we think of the holidays. It's purely magical and so comforting. I hope you had a lovely Christmas, and I wish you a Happy New Year. I've so enjoyed following Mrs. T's life, and I've really enjoyed seeing your comments on my blog this year. Peace to you:>

I think that if you have a blog, then it is what you need.
Tell people about something, someone is advertising, to somebody else for something else.
Personally, I think so.
Here I have a blog about my travels, but I can not share them with people, because somebody would write that this is spam.
A hoster will also kick :)
