Christmas Mail

Christmas Mail

Click image to enlarge

Oh how I love Christmas surprises!
Especially when I’m really not expecting it.
I took my Cici pup for a walk today,
And took a trip to the mailbox.
Oh Boy…It’s a Tin of Chocolates!!…
Eat your heart’s out my Wombie Friends.
Or just come on over and have some with me.
Scotch Bonnet Fudges sent the chocolates.
They are my good friends and Landlord,
When we’re at the beach in our 5th wheel over the
Spring and summer. One of the owner’s is Cici’s godfather.

And Cici got her very own Christmas card
address to her from her from her fried Angie.
Angie is a very special dog groomer.
She is the only one who can handle Cici…
Cici can be feisty. lol

The Stragglers

Every year after Christmas it’s the same thing,
I check my mail, and what’s in there?
I another batch of Christmas cards,
that the mail service was late at delivering.
Oh sure, we all get a bit behind and send late,
But the dates mailed always seem to reflect they
were mailed in time to get here prior to Christmas,
So if you still hoping for a few greeting this year,
Go out and check your mailbox…You just might be surprised.


The above mailbox painting
was created with watercolor
on 140lb. Coldpress watercolor paper

  1. Hey don’t let the Wombies eat all the chocolate!!! Keep some for me

  2. We got a holiday picture sent in the mail of some family. My wife and I swear we don’t know them and blame the other for forgetting a coworker. haha

    • OMG! I had that happen to me once. I didn’t have a clue who the family was…lol
      Bearman, check with your parents (both sides), they might tell you it’s a cousin or someone like that.

    Now that is a great surprise! save a dark chocolate one for me 😉 Cici is a cutey! I remember my yorkies had big personalities for little bodies too. This is the 1st Christmas I can remember that we did NOT have any snow on the ground in a longgg time. we still have lots of grass that is green too! I am not complaining at all… winter will dump on us soon enough. Enjoy the rest of your Christmas day. ~Faythe @ GMT~

    • Oh yeah! Anytime I get chocolate in the mail, which is not very often at all, I get surprised!. I will save you some too…Dark chocolate.
      Cici can be quite feisty when she is mad about something…She turns into a little taz.
      No snow for you either, eh…It’ll get here soon. But then again, about 4 winders ago we never had any snow the whole winter. It was a very strange winter that year. But then we were paid back the following years with blizzards.

  11. Inspiring. I always feel as though I am looking at something I have seen before when I view your work…something from a past life or a dream. Your work is so effective and beautiful. It contains a rare sense of familiarity that speaks to a deep connection between the artist and the canvas. Well done!

    • Every now and then I manage to pull of a piece of artwork that has this effect. What I find when I create these pieces are to keep thing very simple, and not to try and complicate the image with too many details or perfection.
      Maybe it is that mailbox after Christmas full of all the belated Christmas cards that comes to mind.
      Thank you for such a lovely comment!
      Deb xx

  12. I’m continually impressed by your skill with watercolor (the water just won’t work for me – but you make it look easy with pieces like this)!
    A very merry Christmas to you and your family, Ms. A!

    • Oh you can do this, I know you can. I’ve learned to just let the water do what it wants. But I’ve also learned to start of with a pale shade in case I don’t like something. That way I can go over it in a darker shade to cover up. Lightest colors first.
      Thank you for the comment, Bob! And a Merry Christmas to you!

    Adorable poem, warm painting and a very “Christmas mail” vision…I do think I shall go check my mail soon. BTW: I had to look up Wombies on the Internet as I had no idea what they were. LOL Now I am curious what Cici is…;)

    Hope you have enjoyed a splendid Christmas with the one’s you love.
    And may the New Year be filled with Peace, Love and Happiness.

    • Hi Raven, I’ve the the name “Wombie linked int the body of the original post if you have any trouble…They’re a comic I read daily…check-em out, you just may like it yourself.
      Anyway, I’m so glad to see you here today visiting me. And thank you for the comment about my post…I’m glad you like it.
      I had a wonderful Christmas, and hope you did as well, my friend. And now that Christmas Day has passed, I will wish for you a most wonderful New Year that brings you Joy, Happiness, Adventure, Ideas, and of course, the one thing we could all use…Money. Money may not bring happiness, but it sure fixes a lot of things, eh.
      Thanks for coming in Raven!
      Hugs, Deb xx

  14. That’s a nice mailbox you painted. Even nicer when it has fudge in it!

    If you find some Wombies knocking on your door one night, you’ll know why they came.

    • You guys are always welcome, and I will make sure there is plenty of chocolates for you. We may have to order the wine gums from someone close to you though.
      Deb xx

  15. What a cool post, Debbie and an awesome watercolor to accompany it. Christmas mail is surely welcome any day of the year! 🙂

    • Yes indeed! Especially when there is chocolate and cards for the dog in it!
      Thank Leslie for the comment and on my painting too!
      Deb xx

  16. I love this mailbox painting! I dont know exactly why but I think it’s my fav you’ve done so far, theres just something so sweet and fresh and innocent about a country mailbox sitting amidst freshly fallen snow.

    • Sometime the ones I work on with the least effort come out the best…I guess my hand and sub-conscious are working together hand and hand when I’m not trying so hard to do things just right.
      I’m really glad you like this one…It’s one of my favorites as well.
      Thanks for commenting, Nikki!
      Hugs, Deb xx
