  1. Thank you Slim for another fabulous post. And really for a whole year of fabulous posts. I hope you and you family are having a Merry Christmas today.

  2. In 90° Sri Lanka I am missing clear frosty nights and any reason to snuggle up in a white wool knitted blanket….except if you’re atop Adam’s Peak….but lush emerald-green, tea-planted hillsides are not bad alternatives for bunny slopes, for a change…..Santa even came last night in this mostly Buddhist country….and a children’s choir sang carols in lovely Sri Lankan accents…..what a world!

  3. The second picture of the wicker chair with the two stars sitting in it, any chance to find out where to buy that chair? Love your blog. Ann

  4. The Sheperds in the Field follow the STAR to where Jesus Christ was born.
    I love STARS, I see people i love, but can’t be near, when I look at them.

  5. Merry Christmas Slim!
    Love the photo of the tent with the starry night background!!
    Here’s wishing you receive all your falling star wishes for 2014!

  6. Hope you had a loverly ChrIstmas Day …love the snow and tree in Sun Valley and the all black!! clothes to welcome Spring

  7. Happy, Happy belated Christmas Luvee!!!……..Have a wonderful last few days of 2013, it has been quite the year for you hasn’t it?! ……….looking forward to seeing your hanging lamp “painted” in 2014 winky winky xo Blessings to you and your family, and I pray NO more surgeries for you EVER!!! Happy New Year!

  8. Thank you, Slim. Another beautiful post. Following silently for a long time but I have to tell you how much I enjoy your well thought out posts, sense of humor, hiking ability and joie de vivre. Knew I’d love your blog ’cause you got me at “Slim Paley”. I knew just who you were referencing, two of my style makers. Happy New Year!
