Christmas Card...

This year was the 4th day of Christmas in the series I am doing of
The Arizona Twelve Days of Christmas

This year it was, a red fox walks through four mesquite trees

My origami tree

the birds are folded my my daughter.

I have a small snow globe collection that I put out every year.
The black bird to the left is one of daughters books.
When you lift the wing there is a wordless map book of the birds travels !

Some years I buy a snow globe some years I don't find one I like.

Two Japanese styled wrapped gifts by the door for friends.

I know these next few days everyone will be extra busy
but I want to wish you all a wonderful
Christmas Holiday !

  1. You really go all out with the holidays!

  2. Such elegant simplicity in your decorating. I love the card! And also the Japanese way of wrapping. Happy Christmas to you.

  3. A Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Seeing those snow globes (particularly if they're music boxes as well) reminds me of my mother. She has quite a lot of those. And I like winding all of them up to play at once...

  4. Merry Christmas, Gayle, Watson and Hamish!

    I love snow globes. I have one currently--Wile E. Coyote, tied to an Acme rocket that's about to crash. The song--(I Did It) My Way.

  5. i love your original card and i shall treasure it! wonderful how the presents are wrapped too!

    merry christmas!

  6. Love the tree and the snowglobe collection. Perfectly adorable. My mom loved snowglobes too!

  7. One of my favourite cards. Keep creating. Love and best wishes.

  8. This is all so stylish and beautiful! What a wonderful 12 days of Christmas, maybe you will post it all one of these days. Have a lovely Christmas, and the dogs too. And a wonderful 2013, Parsnip.

  9. «Louis» finds that the Japanese exceed even the French in beautiful packaging as witnessed by the last image in your post.

    Best wishes to you and the two little square black dogs for the New Year!

  10. Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day today!

  11. Could you please mlet me know the title and author of that black bird book please? it looks so interesting!
