Merry Christmas!

"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder  

You can just feel the Christmas spirit in the air!
It has been such a pleasure blogging and as I reflect upon this past year, I am thankful for each one of you who has visited and commented on one or both of my blogs.
I want to especially thank those of you who have participated in my weekly tea parties. You are all appreciated so very much.

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is HOPE;
The spirit of Christmas which is PEACE;
The heart of Christmas which is LOVE. ~ Ada V. Hendricks

From my heart to yours, A Very Merry Christmas!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
