Just a quick post to wish everyone a Merry Hogmanay and all the best for 2013! I'm posting some pics of the beautiful Scottish countryside as a "toast" to the upcoming year. One of my resolutions for this new year is to get out walking in the countryside more often (didn't do nearly enough of that last year) So the pictures below are of two of my favourite walks.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Hello, I hope that everyone is enjoying the Christmas season and looking forward to happy holidays!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY PROSPEROUS 2013 FROM ARTIZANIA
Yesterday while browsing online I found a very emmmm, interesting looking Christmas book, titled "We Wish You A Crazy Christmas" It is a postcard book of Victorian Christmas Cards (see my post from last December, I love Victorian Christmas Cards) I wish I'd discovered it a couple of weeks ago I would have bought it in time for Christmas. I shall definitely be buying it and will save it for next Chritmas! Ha ha! Here is a picture of the front cover! I can't wait to see the postcards inside.
Pretty Crazy looking, I am desperate to see inside this book!
Here are samples of typical Victorian Christmas cards. Well it is Christmas after all, the time to share.
Apologies to the vegetarians out there
They get a lot stranger, just do an internet search for "Weird Victorian Christmas Cards" and see what you can find. On that note, I'll finish this post and wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
