Thinking of Christmas Gifts in July

I would think that it would be needless to say, but considering the level of sophistication to many of my readers, it would probably be better to just go ahead and spell it out. Therefore, please be advised that this is one of a number of special edition Sites To See, and all included in it may have something that just might fit quite nicely under your Christmas tree (or stuffed in a stocking) a few very short months from now. As in the regular Sites To See, the link provided below is to the main site, and the images are linked to their particular page, when applicable. The images serve as an example of what they have to offer, and they are not necessarily meant as a recommendation. Although, they do represent something that I liked to at least a certain extent, but since my wife does not like me all that much most of the time (no, I have no idea why, neither), I do not expect to see any of them with my name on it. Hopefully, it is better in your family, and I am quite sure that the artisans here would greatly appreciate your business. Besides, spending your money on things that are made and marketed by people not so unlike yourself strikes a blow against corporate greed and all of that other stuff, which is supposed to be a good thing—right?

  2. It's hard to think of Christmas when it's 80 degrees outside, but yes it will be here before we know it. I see some outstanding Christmas gifts here! Thank you so much for including my painting "Farmfield Sunset"

  3. Hi Jerry!

    Thanks so much for including my work in this post! There's a lot of talent here, including the work of one of my friends, Janelle Goodwin.

    All the best!

  4. Love the kay's k9's. I have a friend with a yorkie and she would love that

  5. I love Kay K9's - boy you get around a lot!

  6. You are most welcome, and thanks for being so considerate, my dear Julie!!! Your shot certainly captures attention. For it is almost like looking out of a window at the scene!

  7. You are most welcome, and thanks for being so considerate, my dear Janelle!!! Many of your paintings are especially interesting to me. For you very accurately capture how things can look fuzzy and somewhat off-color at first light. Well, at least that is the way it has often looked to me.

  8. You are most welcome, and thanks for being so considerate, my dear Kathleen!!! You and Janelle are both very talented ladies.

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Well, our Grayson is a black and tan Yorkie, but the expression on her's face is very familiar.

  10. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Sandie!!! Well, I almost always have, but I would like to think that I am hanging out in some better places now.

  11. Lovely selection. I especially like the ring...oh....and my necklace! lol

    Thanks so much...Gail

  12. You are most welcome, and thanks for being so considerate, my dear Gail!!! Nope, I can't blame you for liking your necklace at all.

  13. Hi FishHawk!
    You are just so kind to include my painting in your Christmas in July post!! I appreciate that so much! What a wonderful selection of goodies you present us with!
    Best to you,

  14. You are most welcome, and thanks for being so considerate, my dear Jean!!! The Hill Country heat has moved up here, and I want it to go back down there!
