  1. Thank you for the kind wishes and the cheery pictures.

    My brother once received a Xmas card with a picture of Father Xmas covered in little hopping varmints. The caption read “Fleas Natividad”. We remained mystified for two years before discovering the term Felice Natividad. 😀 . One does feel like such fool.

  2. C’est magnifique, Cuz !!! You’ve outdone yourself …, again ! Absolutely gorgeous !!! Hope you got enough…, but not too much rain. Enjoy the season. 🙂

  3. Thank you for all the exquisite posts you have done for us. Thank you for touring us to the beautiful places that you have visited. Thank you for showing us the majestic animals, special birds, and gorgeous flowers you have seen! All have touched my heart and soul… And, thank you for your never-ending support. Merry Christmas to you, Dear Cindy! <3

  4. Hold the phone! Cindy, this is YOUR house?! Wow, my décor looks so tchotchke in comparison.

    Your photos almost always highlight flora and fauna but–good God–you can make interiors looks fabulous as well. Are you sure you didn’t miss your calling as decorator? Wow. Just wow.

    • The lower photos are the Four Seasons Santa Barbara and the Ojai Valley Inn interchangeably. The massive golf course and restaurant are sadly not The Holler!! If it were, I really would wear a tiara for Xmas!!! Laughing…… So sorry, I should have clarified. I will add clarification to the tags and categories! Have a very Merry Christmas my friend with, or without a tiara! <3

  5. :star: OMG! Your halls are decked and it looks like a wonderful holiday season! :star:
    Great shots. :star:
    :star: Merry Christmas, Cindy! :star: I wish all the best for you! _Resa xo :star:

  6. Wow ! Such flamboyant and pleasing decorations ! Have a very Happy Christmas with your family and friends dear Cindy ★★.✿¸.•°*”˜ƸӜƷ˜”*★★.✿¸.•°

  7. Cindy – I’ve been a little like Tess above. I’ve had so many crisis with Tom since my blogging break started, I’m wondering if I’ll manage to get the Christmas decorations out of the attic. You are an inspiration to all of us. Thank you for bringing beauty to us each and everyday (and education along the way). Blessing to you and yours.

    • You Sheri are a very valued friend. Your blog is changing the way people view mental health issues, essentially due to your personal honesty and bravery. I am your sincere admirer. <3

  8. I had to check twice….. “Deck the halls” ? I looked all over in every picture but I couldn’t find any “boughs of holly” ! Did the drought ruin all of it ??? (teasing) !!! Nollaig Shona Dhaoibh to both you and jim…, and family !!!

  9. This was an extravaganza of international delights! I enjoyed all the decorating and the wonderful way you displayed them. I was in wonderment at your Holler home holiday photos, too. The Inn photos and Resort photos were beautiful but your way of including all countries into your home was extra special, Cindy!

  10. Mmmmm, now that is the Christmas spirit that I am after ~ excellent series of photos, and reminds me of my mom and her preparation/taste for the holiday season. Your shots (and the Four Seasons prep) bring the spirit so close. Cheers!
