Christmas Eve!

 Christmas Eve is my favorite day in the whole season.  I like the sense of waiting for something to happen, and feeling snug inside while it's winter outside.  The days have just begun to lengthen again.  I'm not a morning person, and I really like the evening-times, and Christmas Eve is all about the night-time. 
These images are of Mary and Jesus, which I really like.

Hand-written icon made in Greece

Another hand-made maiolica tile from Deruta, Italy, another painter
third maiolica tile from Deruta, same artist as the one at the top of the post.


  1. beautiful! i'm not a morning person either (i know, i know, it sounds ridiculous!) but i do love the quiet time in the morning - everything is waiting for the day to begin, and in the meanwhile, it's just....quiet!
    the tiles and icons are beautiful - i have one small repro. icon of the madonna and i love it dearly!

  2. I love those mother photos. : )

  3. yes, I love the mother/child pictures as well,as you can tell. My favorite sculpture is Michaelangelo's Pieta, altho sadly I was not able to get up close to it.
    Hope everyone's having a nice Christmas!!!
