Since the recent blog theft debacle, I've hesitated to share any of Aunt Totsie's cards on my blog, but have decided to risk a few in the spirit of Christmas. Though I will add a warning that every card has been woven with invisible worms & charms by all my hacker & pagan friends, so insidious thieves beware!
In addition to being a talented artist, Aunt Totsie was also a master gardener. Her flower garden on the Lake of the Ozarks was full of blooms and birds.
I've saved each one of her watercolor Christmas cards and take them out to read. Her gifts continue to bless my home each holiday. And for that and for her love I'm truly thankful.
I wish you and your families a very Happy Holiday and a Joyful New Year!

Oh and here's a silly Christmas treat for all of you...
"I don't know what to do!" cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings. "I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to every-body! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!" Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol
