Twelve Days of Christmas!

image

Two years ago I was lucky enough to win these beautiful drawings of the 12 days of Christmas created by Charlotte Hoather when I took part in a contest by this talented soprano on her blog, charlottehoathersblog.com.

I also received two CDs of Charlotte’s gorgeous voice singing some lovely songs. It was a wonderful surprise for me. I am embarrassed to say it took me this long to have these artistically created panels put into a frame. But I think it came out fantastic! I had a local frame store do it, Michael’s Crafts Store. I am pleased with it and had my husband hang it up in a prominent place above our Christmas crèche for all the family to see.

Charlotte Hoather is not only an accomplished soprano but she also has talent as an artist as shown by these beautiful drawings of the 12 Days of Christmas!

It is my pleasure to showcase this gorgeous collection in my home all year round. It is too special to just share at Chrismas! Thank you, Charlotte Hoather, for sending these beautiful cards to me.

      Thank you, Norah. We met with one of the staff at Michael’s and they helped us arrange the cards and add the red, green and gold individual frames each one plus the lovely outside frame accented in gold made it all so special. We love it too! I hope Charlotte is pleased seeing it all together. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas too! Hugs!

  2. Wow, these are gorgeous, Janice. What a lovely prize to win. If they were on my wall then I’d be displaying them all year long.

    Janice Spina shares some wonderful illustrations by Soprano Charlotte Hoather that she acquired and they look stunning.

      Oh, I am so happy that you are pleased. I was just going to leave you a note on your blog for you to take a look at it. It does look spectacular on my wall. I can’t wait to show it off to all my family on Christmas Eve. The framing place helped us put it all together. I love the colors too! They really show up your beautiful drawings! I plan on leaving it up all year round because it is too special to just admire for a couple of months! I just had to share it with all my friends online as soon as I got it completed.

      Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a very Healthy & Happy New Year! Much love! Xo

  6. I tried to reblog it but the wifi here is awful, when I get home tomorrow I’ll share it if that’s ok with you?
