Happy Solstice

We woke up yesterday morning to a most delicious surprise, our world was transformed by snow.
What fun! We have been close to the fireplace in between sledding in the park, trudging through the HUGE snow piles that build up on New York City street corners, cooking (veggie chili and scones, yum!) and enjoying the build up as each day brings us closer to Christmas. The holiday fair that I was selling at on Saturday went really well, and I've been reveling in the happiness of a job well done.

Now, the orders and Christmas presents are all in the mail, and I'm looking forward to the next few days of winding down while celebrating more and more each day.

The sun set today at 4:30PM, the shortest day of the year. Happy Solstice everyone!
Thank you so much to all of you who entered my Solstice celebration giveaway!
This evening at 5Pm I put all of your names into a bowl and had my children choose one each (with no peeking), and the winners are....

Stacy, of Mama-Om, has won the Note Card Set
and
Lisa, of Doorways Traveler, has won the print of Awakening

Congratulations to you both. I loved hearing from each of you that posted a comment, it is great to hear your voices and visit your blogs. I am pleased to meet you!

Stunning photos. It looks so peaceful. I'm happy to hear your sale went well. You were on my mind that day. I kept thinking "if only I lived in Brooklyn I'd run in and say hello". So "hello" and Merry Christmas eve.

I saw your blog through my friend Lindsay (above) and I just had to stop by and tell you how gorgeous your paintings are! You are very talented! I see you live in New York City, I have only been there twice, but I love it! Hopefully one day I can see it during the winter, I bet its gorgeous! Hope you had a great Christmas!
