Let It Snow


Black, brown and greens for the Holidays
a very chic Holiday taboo
That evokes the richness of well worn leather
and memories of gingerbread, hot cocoa and licorice
the crystal will definitely shine a little brighter
with this toasty palette

Classic and warm

The Holidays | French Toy Theaters

Just to prove there are World’s Away
and places you never thought you’d find
in a Universe of Year’s,  I thought I’d share
one of my guilty internet pleasures

Somewhere, sometime I chanced upon
Anita Rivera’s site Castles, Crowns and Cottages
She weaves the most evocative melange
of images, words and music as she creates purely
inspirational magic

She and her friends have created for our
holiday pleasure a quintet of tiny performances
