Twelve Days of Christmas!

This post which I published in December of 2017 is apropos for today –THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS! I hope you will enjoy it again. Each time I look at this beautiful collage made by my friend, soprano extraordinaire, Charlotte Hoather, in Scotland I sigh with delight. This gift is the gift that keeps on giving! Thank you, Charlotte, once again.

Back in 2014 I was lucky to win the Twelve Days of Christmas beautifully drawn by talented and lovely soprano, Charlotte Hoather from a contest on her blog. I also won at that time three CDs of Charlotte’s amazing voice.

Each year I like to share these 12 Days of Christmas with my readers.  Charlotte is not only beautiful but is an artist too as you can see by these incredible drawings. I framed them and keep them up all year round. They are too fabulous to put away with the rest of the decorations. I enjoy looking at them often.


Here they are framed below.


Don’t they look gorgeous? I love the framing done by Michael’s Arts & Crafts. It displays them in a creative way with the red and green signifying Christmas.

Thank you, Charlotte, for sharing your fantastic art work. I think of you each time I look at them.

Check out Charlotte’s incredible site too and listen to her amazing voice. She will amaze and delight you.

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind support! Thank you also to all who have purchased books from in 2018! I appreciate your support. Please leave some love for authors by reviewing our books. We will love you back.


Merry Christmas & a Healthy & Happy New Year to all!

Blessings & Hugs!
