……the sky has been ‘blossoming’ since the rain!
Calligraphy class with Shantien ‘Tom’ Chow is always a wonderful way to start the month. He gave the most interesting talk about why Calligraphers like to use those unweilding large ‘Soft’ brushes. Because they are so difficult to handle, there’s a lot of unpredictability involved. Happy accidents that turn the work into art!
We always love it when Dorothy brings one of her magnificent landscapes. This is ’Sea of Clouds.’ Tom & I are trying to convince her to use larger mats.
Violet needed sugar and the yummy Marzipan from Miss Judith did the trick!
All of this is well and good but what about Christmas!!!
Nikka, it’s time to trip the tree...
Nikka found this wonderful star for the top and surrounded it with our angels.
Thanks to thoughtful Eileen we have a wreath to hang…..finding the perfect spot took a group decision and hanging it was pure teamwork.
Wait ‘till you see what else we did with that wreath! It’s a surprise…...
It was great fun working with Lizzie Girl on her Christmas card. She selected a precious little bird and it came out wonderful….sooooo happy!
Someone please tell me why Kita loves to take the moss out and toss it about meanwhile ingesting some and causing problems of another kind. You get my drift….
She’s hoping someone will come and rescue her from her ‘time out’!
Now here’s a cute gift idea…..Happy Feet ‘As Seen on Shark Tank’!
Did you get to crush any leaves????? Soooooo fun!!!
Foodie alert! I’ve discovered the most amazing place in Toluca Lake……Olive & Thyme. If you love Joan’s on Third you’ll feel right at home here!

The following photo’s will give you some idea of what I’m talking about!
To cap the day, making it absolutely perfect, awesome Amy came by with exquisite creations for mom & me!!!
Serendipity brought me to Bloomie’s where artist Enzo Selvaggi was hand painting designs on the Jo Malone boxes……
It was great fun!
My wish for you…..
