I WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sandro Botticelli [1445-1510] 'The Birth of Christ' 1476-77

This beautiful fresco by Botticelli, is located at the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, Florence, a church which enchanted me on our visit in 2014.



May I wish all of you, Dear Readers, a very peaceful and happy Christmas, filled with the Blessings of the Season, and good times with family and friends.

Thank you all for reading my little Blog.  I enjoy your friendship very much and look forward avidly to your comments and our little conversations.
The blog turns six years old in the New Year.
Who would have thought it?

With much love from
Patricia, Red Cardinal.

    I'm off to making your Christmas cake -- the reason I logged on just now -- is to take another look at your recipe. Wish me luck!
