HOLY FAITH CHRISTMAS IN SANTA FE

I am visiting the "The Royal City of the Holy Faith of Saint Francis of Assisi". Santa Fe...Holy Faith. The town is dressed in snow and luminaries that represent the light that comes from faith in Christ who is lighting our way.... Mas means .....celebration!
So Santa Fe and John and I are celebrating Christmas EVE by walking Canyon street tonight where they have bonfires, luminaries, and singing of carols.

Yesterday we walked Canyon Street while the snow was falling and all the adobe galleries where dressed in their Christmas best...with snow making everything sparkling and even more beautiful. I saw so many wonderful paintings...what a special way to celebrate Christmas.


A lovely treat was going to the Georgia O'keefe museum! This was the first painting I saw...it was so beautiful..and it is my Christmas card to you too!

What a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas time. I can just imagine John's music playing in the background in that lovely place.

Hi Deidra

My sparkly little elf has arrived this morning, what a lovely suprise to receive in the post, I won't be putting him away with the Christmas decorations, I shall keep him in my studio to remind me of you.

Thank you once again.

Wishing you both a very Happy New Year
