Not much going on -

I can't believe I just wrote that!! It is super busy and with Christmas looming on the horizon - it will just get busier and busier!! Last night we went "mall" shopping - now malls are not my favorite places to go but sometimes they are the only place to get the stuff you need to get. I had to go by Lupicia and pick up some more tea - they were out of White Christmas - more coming in on Friday - but they did have in a shipment of Jingle Bells so I picked up a pack of that. Then it was off to Macy's and I finished up shopping for my Mom and my Niece. On the way out we stopped into Borders and they were having their open house for the Holiday's - so there was a costumed Desparaux (sp) and a Bell Choir playing so it was pretty nice - since I didn't bring my camera I haven't a snap at all of any of that - which is to bad as it was pretty cute!!

I worked on an exchange last night after we got home so no snap of that - but let me put up a snap from Golden Gate Park from a couple of weeks ago -


I think it is a really nice statue of what I presume to be a St Francis -
found in the Arboretum in a secluded area.

The day before Tirillium asked about the red triangle tree chart - it is the "Un Natale da Ricamare" - an annual publication that includes Itallian and American designers stitching Christmas ornaments - the cover shows the different etui's that are included in the book.

Thank you all for the nice comments yesterday!!!
Thank you once again for stopping by!!
Take care,

Yes, that is St. Francis and he is my very favorite patron saint since he is patron saint to small woodland animals and birds! I wanted to name my youngest ds Francis but figured he would hate me forever if I did! LOL

You are correct sir, that shall be St. Francis, and seems as if Sherry is up on her Saints :)
He was a wonderful man, cared for all man and creature alike - he also was a hermit and lived in a cave.

HUGS!
