Tucked away in a dusty shed is a rocking chair with peeling holiday red. It has no obvious value but beyond what it looks like it has my immediate feelings provoking me to love it while begging for attention reminding me of the young soul within. Age just shows up by itself when grace and beauty departs, this chair is the precise age for something important it has inspired me with creating for the holidays.
"I know not how it may be with others
Who sit amid relics of householdry that
date from the days of their mothers' mothers,
But well I know how it is with me

I want to thank "Anita Crisp" of Redding California for custom ordering one of my signs with her phrase "It's A Wonderful Life" she wanted a holiday sign to last year around that inspires a wonderful life and it was a joy to create it.
A sled my daughter Hannah and I came across while out of town on business, it inspires a winter sleigh ride and the sounds of jingle bells. Inspiring a holiday, creating with holiday old.
