Inspired by... 12 Days of Textures {Days 3 & 4}


Yes, I'm playing a bit of catch up here with Kim's 12 Days of Textures holiday series, with another shot from the Hawaiian archives... using Kim's Edward and Cosmo textures...



The Legend of Poinsettia

Legend has it that a poor child

in Mexico having nothing to

give the Christ Child on His

birthday, gathered some weeds

into a lovely bouquet; the only

gift she had to offer.

When she brought her gift to the manager

this simple weed was transformed

into a brilliant red bloom ~ the poinsettia!

Now known as the beautiful

"Flower of the Holy Night"


It was so neat to find poinsettia's growing in people's backyards!  Even in balmy Hawaii, they spoke "Christmas" to me. Their bold red and green are one of my favorite symbols of the holiday.


Do you have a favorite holiday "symbol" ?
