Warm Holiday Wishes

Very gay they were with snow and sleigh-bells, holly-boughs, and garlands, below, and Christmas sunshine in the winter sky above. All faces shone, all voices had a cheery ring, and everybody stepped briskly on errands of good-will. ~Louisa May Alcott, "Seamstress," Work: A Story of Experience, 1873

For some interesting reason which I have been unable to figure out I have a strange fascination with penguins ... or as I call them "pen-goo-ins" lol
This image is from a stamp that my husband actually found for me.

Merry Christmas to One and All!

Oh Louisa May Alcott! I do love reading many of her wonderful novels, Little Women especially. And I do say your hubby has great taste in stamps! This penguin is adorable! Love the sweet facial expression and those long eyelashes. BTW, you got to put a video tutorial on how to color this cutie up along with the cardinal you did a while back. I could use a lesson. I find coloring any birds, even one that can't fly (haha) rather difficult.

Happy Holidays to you and your hubby sweet friend.
