Painting, Decorating and Baking Christmas Cookies

I thought I had put up a lot of wreaths on our windows, but I believe these folks win the prize!  This is an old Christmas painting I did a few years ago.  Christmas scenes are my favorite subject and I could paint them year round.  At this moment I am working on a new cupcake painting and should be able to share that soon.  After this one is finished I'm putting up my brushes and taking the rest of the month to finish up preparing for Christmas and enjoying some family time.

I'm still playing around with the tripod and camera settings and taking different shots of our tree.  I promise these should be the last two tree photos that I'll share. 

This morning I made sugar cookies and you can find the recipe here.  These cookies melt in your mouth and the aroma of fresh baked cookies will linger throughout the day!

Are there any presents under your tree yet? 

I'm linking this post to:


  1. Your tree is just gorgeous. I love a real tree and lots of bobbles. Your paintings are so beautiful. I love the wreaths on the dormers. Yes, there are two gifts under the tree already from two ladies I lunched with last week. It's beginning to look like Christmas around here. Deb

  2. Wow. There went a long, wonderful comment. Poof! Trust me, it was sweet. Beautiful make-believe and beautiful reality...

  3. Your tree is so beautiful Cathy! I love seeing the first shot and being able to see more of your lovely home.

  4. Cathie, I love that painting!! I also love the photos you took! Very pretty!


Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
