A Few of My Favorite Christmas Things Week

This has always been one of my favorite Winter-Christmas decorations. Growing up in wintry, cold Upstate New York, as a young girl, I could hardly wait for the ice to freeze to go ice skating.   Sometimes it would be in our front yard, or to the park down the street, or to the indoor rink at Colgate University when we lived in Oneida. 

It was interesting to find a bit about this old painting (1920) on the web.   Fidus (Hugo Höppener) must have been quite a character! After reading about Fidus, I am sure I will be looking at the lovely little painting with new eyes and a bit of a chuckle! 

Have a Blessed Day,
