{Merry Christmas 2011}

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and Happiness that will last all year long. Peace, warmth and the joy of being with family. Those that cannot be near us, we keep in our hearts. Let distances vanish as we embrace the world in PEACE and LOVE. Thanks for visiting and reading my posts, thanks to all 148 countries, wherever you are, whomever you are. We are a small world after all.
“I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.” —Charles Dickens quote
The beautiful high-end Merry Christmas pillow from Miss Rebecca at A Gathering Place, that I won last year! Something to cherish for years to come...

  9. Mooie uitspraak van Dickens! Wat grappig dat zilver van D.E. hè? Had het een poosje opgeruimd, maar nu is zilver weer erg in de mode hier.Ach eigenlijk tijdloos.

    Fijne Kerstavond.
