Where have I been? (December Edition)

Decorating our Christmas tree.
Love a real tree and the warm glow of white lights (not LED).

Cats love checking out the tree and decorations.
 Lucky for us, they don't bother it.

Visiting Longwood Gardens and forgetting my camera.
(this one's from last year)

Love visiting King of Prussia Mall during the Holidays.
 They have the best decorations. A full carousel of deer encircled Santa!

 3+ story high reindeer outside the mall.

A first time trip to Johnny Brendas in Philadelphia to see the band Freelance Whales. 
They were awesome, check out this video! What a great venue too, very small and cozy with a great selection of beer. I had the Yards Love Stout, delicious and creamy! They only serve local beers, no Miller Lite here.

Finishing up my newest custom Painted Pony, Cree Beauty.
Based on a Woods Cree Indian saddle blanket from the 1800's,
 combines my love of flowers and nature with horses.

The Trail of Painted Ponies has my Celestial pony on the front page of their site. They also used this pony for the month of January in their new calendar. I should have some coming in the mail to sell soon. My pony, Appy Holidays, is the December image too!

Beautiful photos, Jennifer. And your "whimsies" are, well, whimsical, without being "cutsie".
And a big "thank you" for visiting my blog!!

I'm with you--I LOVE a real tree. We get a real one each year. Yours is lovely. :)

Kath said...

jen, I spy a zebra on your tree! I thought I was the only person in the world who had a zebra on their tree LOL
I have had mine about 25 years and have no idea why I started using it on my tree, but it's kind of a tradition in our house now! Your tree looks lovely, we don't have one this year with all the mess of remodelling, but I am enjoying all my Blog freinds trees. Have a lovely Christmas!best wishes from England

That is one of the prettiest trees I've ever seen--I love its branches.

Sounds like you've been having fun lately, and that mall sure knows how to do Christmas!

Congratulations on your Painted Pony success--that's great they used you for their cover!!
