Cottage Christmas

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspiration for my art.  This year  Bentley, My Study Assistant, was the inspiration for my Christmas card.

Let's take a little tour of my Christmas Cottage and garden and I will show you the inspiration for my  card.
























"And the angel said to them. "Do not be afraid  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people."  Luke 2

Wishing you and your family all the joy, the hope, and the wonder of Christmas.

Blessings, Erin
