Rose, I have been worrying about you, slaving away in your shop of horrors, and then I find that you have been cruising!!! Sounds like a wonderful trip! I'm so glad you got a break. Now, get back to work! Just kidding, of course. I already have my beautiful Santa, so I don't care whether you work or cruise. Your creativity just makes work look like fun though. laurie

laurie said...

Rose, I wasn't going to come tell you that I posted my Santa collection, because I was afraid you'd be appalled (sp) to see your gorgeous Father Christmas in the midst of all my junk. Thank you for stopping by.

If you get time, please come back to my blog and pick up a little award I have for you. laurie
