    Happy Lucia Day, Joanna! We celebrated early this a.m. with glogg and gingersnaps. Even the cat had part of a cookie! And I LOVE that gnome in the pix!!

    We also had our party this weekend and a really lovely time was had by all. So much so that we are already writing down ideas for next year!

    Lovely photos, Joanna. I love the second one the best. With the reflected lights in the window behind you, you look just as if YOU are wearing a crown of light. You are the light bringer, Joanna!
    Blessings,
    Cari

    Happy Lucia Day to you too, Diane! So glad you like our Gnome. 🙂 We have a different Giftbringer every year. He’s definitely one of the most popular. Pietra – thank you! Dionne – I would love to hear more about your party and your ideas for next year! Cari, thanks. I didn’t notice the lights behind my head, but now I see them – very cool!!
