  5. Awww! A Christmas Book-tree! I love it! And the snow glow, Christmas tree cookies, peppermints in the tea, the elephant and the narwhal stuffed animals; all so fun. :D

  6. Hmm... wonder if the tree is books they've already read and enjoyed, or a wonderful stack of new ones! Cute curls peeking out from their caps.
    Merry Christmas!

    1. I would say the books that make up the tree are new books just because it's nicer that way and they would have a whole stack of books to read when the holiday is over.

  7. There is so much joy in these pictures ... I find children to be the source of the excitement we all feel around the holidays. Their innocent belief and excitement in the sudden appearance of all of the presents. I too am a lover of books ... would like to know more about your interest in books. Are you a ravenous reader like me or do you write as well. Anyway, where would we be in life without our books. This is a beautiful post, Lissa ... Merry Christmas :)

  9. This is SO charming Lissa. I love the pile of books, which seems to be one of your trademarks (along with umbrellas and vines). The characters are sweet. Quite original of you.
    Lovely solstice and beyond to you!

    1. books has now become one of my favorite things to put into my art, so yeah. the two, I think of them as siblings, are suppose to be fairies but I decided it didn't matter that no one notices the wings so they can be fairies or just plain human children pretending to be fairies.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.

  14. What a magical piece, dear Lissa. I love it and so appreciate your close ups which I can then click on to enlarge even more to see that much more detail. I love how your illos are pictures within pictures! I was looking for one of your umbrellas in here but none this time. Magical nonetheless and christmassey indeed. Thank you so much for every piece.

    1. I refrain from adding an umbrella in there which I almost did but decided not to. pieces like this makes me want to add everything to it but I think it's enough. though I did start this with one girl but thought she should have a brother because christmas should be shared.

      thanks for your visit, have a lovely day.
