Peace of Santa

The Santa head sat in a jar, with other doll heads, until he went on to become a part of this beloved Mosaic Tile Holiday Sign created during a mosaic tile class of the past.

This peace was created with a bit of vintage china, glass gems, glass hearts, pennies and a little peace of Santa all glued and grouted on to a vintage wood sign with a hanger.

Peace of Santa is an older chap who has led a gently loved life – with some minor bumps but not bruises –  and the finished peace measures approximately 8″ inches long x 4″ wide x 1″ deep with a built-in wire hanger and black painted back. On Sale Now! 

Proceeds from this peace will be donated to a local food shelf in the North Country. Thank you.


Cutting the Cheese

Cutting blocks of cheese has never been a favorite pastime of mine. The cheese never looks uniformed and I eat all of the pieces that I wreck. TGF pre-cut cheese packs.

Admire people who can arrange food so beautifully … it’s a joy to behold!

Holiday Hors d’oeuvre’s below are cut and arranged perfectly, as always, by the Nicolin Mansion B&B.

Peace and Thank You

Trying to nail down my favorite SENSE, during the holidays.

Extremely thankful that I can use all five.

The smell would have to be spice, the view is always being snowed in with a huge stone fireplace and a big old comfy chair,  the feel is soft flannel, the sound is the music of the season with a crackling fire accompaniment and the taste is a life filled with pure gratitude, for all that I am able to see, hear, feel, smell and taste.

Happy Thanksgiving!

“Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.” ― C. JoyBell C.
