"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

The week between Christmas and New Year

There is something very calm about the day after a holiday. I find the week between Christmas and New Year's Day especially calm and peaceful. Maybe it is because everything still looks so pretty, all decorated. Messes from wrapping paper and cooking and baking have all been put away, but the lovely goodies and gifts remain. The sense of urgency is replaced by a little bit of tranquility. Warm feelings of seeing or speaking with loved ones and friends cling to your heart. Knowing a few days more will bring another holiday along with a fresh new year, I don't know, just seems really nice to me.

Speaking of new fresh starts, I've been watching my Corgi puppy Harley grow these past weeks. He is a funny little guy. He makes me smile every day. He has big paw prints to fill that the lovely dogs in his line have left behind. Last night when I bathed him, I think he finally dropped the last of his puppy fur. His big boy teeth are in now too. He is growing up! I love having a boy in the house again. The girls are great, but there is just something about a boy. They are sometimes a little more 'mushy' and 'lovey' to me.

Do take a peek over in my Etsy shop for a little something new as well! Two new prints plus a fresh new supply of some favorites are in stock. I've also listed a few on eBay as well. The Hedgie Hullabaloo in my previous post is now available in a signed fine art print as well as this new one which I call "Curiouser and Curiouser" It is Corgis set in Alice in Wonderland!

I've listed some on eBay and in the Christmas Corgi Etsy Shop as well. Prices and shipping are identical in both Etsy and
