What a wonderful surprise.

My amazing friend François from Sketches in Stillness

sent me a hand drawn card.

Francois remembered I love lady bug so much.

I love it! ❤️❤️❤️

My last post picture 52 is from my favourite calendar from Francois’

Sketches in Stillness in December.

Of course I have the 2023 calendar hanging up already.

Francois certainly gave me my big smile today.

Thank You François! ❤️

If you see someone without
A smile
Give them yours. 

Thank you and Happy 2023

12 days of Christmas – 12th day of Christmas

Standard

Kew Gardens featured this famous English Carol

with every handmade number standing in the gardens.


On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree.

In todays world we can replace these gifts:

Twelfth day with Love


Wishing all my friends

a peaceful and very happy Christmas

May your wishes come true

Peace on Earth

Love to All

Eleventh day with Honesty

‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ is a famous singalong Christmas carol that runs through the twelve days that make up the Christmas season – beginning on Christmas Day and ending on 5 January, the day before Epiphany.

I’m using it as a countdown to Christmas.

Each day represents a new gift, starting with ‘a partridge in a pear tree’ and ending with ‘twelve drummers drumming’.

It’s a traditional English tune dating back to the 1700s, which some historians actually believe to have French origins.

The version we know best came from Frederic Austin, an English composer who set the lyrics and added some flourishes – including the drawn out “five go-old rings” – in 1909.

The carol is a cumulative song, which means that each verse is built on top of the previous verses.
