~Of Bluebirds Roses and Christmas~

Merry Christmas!! I am just delighted that so many of you have visited already, and that you are excited about Christmas too!! How wonderful it will be to talk about Christmas with all of you kindred spirits!! :)

Today being Sunday, I thought I'd share this little church. This is the first village piece I ever painted. It must have been about twenty years ago. My mom and I bought them at the craft store, and decided to paint them (we were both quite the beginners at the time, but we'd try about anything!!) I love little villages; it's like looking into a magical perfect world!! Here's another piece I painted later, it's Mrs. Claus' Sweet Shoppe! Mmmmmm........

I wanted to comment on your comments about my first Christmas photo I shared below. When I was a little girl, I would look at that photo and think how Santa looked so odd -- I thought the red part of his face that peeks through the beard was his MOUTH and those jingle bells on the hat were his eyes. You see it? Kind of weird looking, eh? (sorry, Santa, you KNOW I love you!! :)

Oh, I also want to mention that I might post more than once a day, some days. I get kind of carried away when it comes to Christmas!!

    Hi Becca, I just love your Christmas blog. It has really gotten me into the holiday mood! I even want to go and watch a Christmas movie and drink hot chocolate. I think that I will go watch "Christmas Vacation". I really do like your little houses too. Also,I can see what you are talking about with that Santa. That is funny!

    Hi Becca,

    I always liked Christmas villages.

    The church and the Sweet Shoppe came out great! It is so nice
    that you still have them, from
    20 years ago.

    Great Job! I will visit again

    Hi Becca,
    I absolutely LOVE Christmas! It has always been my favourite holiday and I start thinking about it in September; August, if I can get away with it! I'm already planning how I'm going to decorate this year. Every ornament I own has a sentimental attachment.
    I'm glad I'm not alone in this Christmas thing.
