Back Home in Nashville

It's nice to be home.  I found the New Year Maiden in Fairhope.  Yup, decorating.  We still have Little Christmas this weekend, so it's ok.

My SIL, Ellen, picked my name this year for Christmas.  She had this "Nana Claus" made for me by Angie's Unique Creations.  El gave the artist one of mom's old wool jackets which took me a moment to notice.  When Ellen said he was "Nana Claus," I noticed the coat material, and I just cried.  How precious.

Hope you're still ho, ho, hoing and being loved this Season.

Pretty. That is a wonderful gift.

Wonderful gift. You have folks who love you, Ro! Give yourself a hug!

I think that is such a nice idea for a gift, and I'm sure your mom would appreciate it.

I'm sort of done with the ho ho's, except for one box, that I still haven't mailed, as I keep hoping for more ideas to include inside of it, but that's ok. Sometimes, we celebrate the New Year, instead of Christmas, and that goes on for a little while yet. At least for me it does. You know me. I'm in the slow lane...seems like I'm getting slower all the time!

Dear Rosa,

I hope you will read my comment and post some reply. I could not find any e-mails address or anything of the like on your blog so I have to put the question here:

when you were in Brussels in 2010, you described the pianist that was with you in the same hotel.

My questions:
- did you take pictures of him?
- what was your impression of him as a person, what did you notice, what was special?

I would very much appreciate any info.

there's no place like home especially when it's Nashville.

Natalia: I did not get any photos nor did I meet him. I only heard his lovely music when we arrived back in the evenings. It was beautiful. Sorry I couldn't give you more information. -ro

I would have sat there and bawled too, to open up such a special gift as Nana Claus. Such a brilliant idea to have him made and using material from your mom's wool jacket...so precious. Glad you're home safe and sound. xoxo
