Christmas is here!
I hope you find some solace in retreating a little from reality. Adventure stories and films, riding a one horse open sleigh across the snow, seeking out the magic in frosty dew drops.
I will escape into it as much as I can! (Already it is bringing out my Mother Hen side even more than usual!)
I wish you all a joyful Christmas, just a little bit of magic and a whole lot of hope for 2013. Thank you for all your support throughout the year and a special thanks to those patient customers who dived in and bought work from me this year! I hope you continue to enjoy Foxglove Lane, and celebrate the ordinary and the everyday with me again in 2013……

Such a beautiful post, as always! I will be "seeking out the magic in frosty dew drops" as you say, allowing the stillness of nature to soothe my soul & remind me of what's important. That's the main reason I love to visit Foxglove Lane–you have such a way of restoring peace & beauty to ordinary days & making me remember that it's all extraordinary. Have a very magical new year!
Seasonal Greetings to you and yours Catherine… I have just bought my first DSLR and a couple of lens … having been reinspired by your blog and kind emails… may inner contentment be yours…
I'd say there's a lot of magic and hope here. Wishing you peace and joy and love!
A kittle bit of magic, a whole lot of hope, and your Mother Hen side. How does it get better than that?! Thank you, Catherine. You've been one of my Gifts this 2012. I look forward to sharing 2013 with you!
Such gorgeousness – Merry Christmas! Wishing you a most beautiful time.
I hope your Christmas was as magical as these images. Your blog is a real inspiration and paints a beautiful picture of Ireland.
Nollaig Shona dhuit agus do chlann.
More a one-horse-open-punt around here at the moment, but I know where you're coming from. Anyway Catherine, in case I don't get back, may your 2013 continue to be filled with innovative and creative imagery.
Happy Christmas Catherine, I hope you've been having a wonderful time with your family! Your blog has really grown this year, I hope that 2013 brings lots more blogging fun and opportunity to you 🙂 xx
