Christmas Decorations Around Town

 So many decorations are hung around the town,
so many of them natural.
 So many cars help with the decorating.
Such cheer in this season of 
cold short days & long nights.


  1. really cute. both of these would make great christmas cards. :)

  2. I agree with TWG .
    That's why I like this time of the year: people take time to make the world more beautiful and magic!

  3. Lovely sketches! :). I love the festiveness too!

  4. You see interesting things to draw everywhere! You are such a good observer of the details in life! We did make our wreath this year, and it was really fun. I got a wire frame at Michaels, and we used the extra lower branches from our national forest tree. Somehow the wreath ended up being much larger than the frame, so it fills our entire door. This wasn't my intention, but I like the look very much, and the idea that the wreath is natural, as you say. Maybe I will try sketching my door...once it warms up just a little bit more!

  5. Nice that you are catching the spirit of Christmas in your town. Like your sketches especially the red car with tree. -- barbara

  6. Bonjour Rita. I love that darling little red car! Tell me, have you ever sketched a French 2 CV? I can't imagine how fun that would be... If you need inspiration, visit my blog. I wrote a post about that iconic little car a couple of years ago... A bientôt. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  7. I smile when I see vehicles topped with trees. Mine will look that way tomorrow briefly. I will try to send you a photo!


Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
