I am finding it hard to believe it is almost Christmas again! I came back to this earlier post and realized I likely didn’t know you then.. Now I do, dear friend, and I value you so much ❤
I know right, one month to Christmas! Where did 2017 go?!!!! Ah, my sweet Christy, likewise, I think we know each other about 2 years now [if not more] but WP has had some glitches in the past and the follows have been on and off [with some people I still can’t connect and have to go to WP happiness engineers to fix every time!]. Happy and grateful for our friendship! 🙂 xx
Gosh I am sooooooooo late with reading this but Merry Christmas anyway!!! 😀 😀

Dear Marina, have a great time, during the holidays and beyond! Now Days are getting longer again 🙂
Happy Holidays to you too! 🙂
yes, they are getting longer… 😔
Lovely, Marina! Season’s Greetings to you, also 🙂
Thank you, my dear friend. Have a lovely Christmas week and Winter Solstice! 🙂
I was going to go out and do some Christmas shopping today– I always enjoy the glitter and excitement at the Mt. Olympus Mall. Or I thought I might do some caroling: when they hear me sing, people always throw figgy pudding and wassail bowls; it’s great– all artists love free food!!
But now I’m paralyzed with beauty! I look upon the latest work by The Great Kanavaki (maestro, a fanfare, if you please!!), and I am riveted to the spot!! What perfect colors! What utter simplicity of design!! Nay, nay, not just one design, but two!! And each a perfectly realized gem, with both reaching out to everyone, with a wish for peace, joy, and harmony!!
I must lie down. The exquisite emotion is too much for a man of my exceptional sensitivity. I see a tree with sparkling lights in the corner. Yes, I’ll go lie down under that until I recover. I shall fade into a happy dream… of sugarplums… goddesses in holly-trimmed togas… and… figgy pudding… : )
P.S. Beautiful work, dear Marina!!!
I have just received the most wonderful gift…
My tree has now a cause: to provide shelter and dream fields to an amazing talent: YOU!
Now excuse me while I go fly off on cloud number 9! 🙂
Thank you, my dearest friend.
Enjoy this Winter Solstice and Christmas week. 🙂
fyi: Mt.Olympus A.M.D. [annual meeting of directors], decided to grant you a lifetime supply of figgy pudding! 🙂 🍨 [oh and they are contributing an emoticon soon with a figgy pudding symbol in your honor! Till then they humbly ask your understanding for this poor substitute] 🙂
A lifetime supply of Figgy P.?? From the Mt. Olympus Bakery?? I’m in ecstasy!! This is the best Christmas present I ever got!! Thank you, O Kindest of Christmas Spirits & Elf Immortals!! I’ll just have a little taste… 🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🚑
Don’t worry, I’m here: […err what is it with emoticons – no nurse symbol?!!!!! okay, here’s the next choice:] 😇 [got to do something about that too at Mt Olympus tsk tsk tsk]
Best wishes to you for the festive period, Marina!!!
Thank you, Graham! My very best wishes to you too! 🙂
Merry Christmas, dear Marina! ⭐ ⭐
Love and hugs and kisses to you & yours! I’m so happy that the winter solstice has arrived! Now, the days will get longer. YAY!!!! Thank you for sharing your art, & I really love your solstice image. ❤

Have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.
