At Santa’s Workshop




The best gift you can give is a hug–

one size fits all

and no one ever minds if you return it.

It’s that time of a very odd year, having had the rug pulled off from beneath us, leaving us scrambling for ways to land on our feet somehow and thrive. Aside from my Empty Nest interruption, 2020 was wonderful in peeling away the non-essentials of our harried lives, less so when we consider the deeper implications of all this isolation and the slow but sure corrosion of our personal ties. We are starved for human touch and the Zoom-minimized opportunities for random connections, though we’d have to consider ourselves lucky when such starvation is not from lack of food on the table. For those more fortunate to have fewer worries than most, life and shopping must go on if only to help the economy and make your favorite people smile –at a distance, of course.



For Him

Take “Family Tree” literally with an original and timeless portrait that you can make into wall art, include in an album for generations to enjoy, blow up as a large puzzle to keep the family entertained through the winter or as an all-occasion greeting card for the many friends and family we’re not allowed to see.




For the Young Ones (and the young once)

Delight in flights of fancy and imagination with unique creations from Etsy.com. For my Game Of Thrones fan, I ordered dragon eggs and a 3D printed necklace as a proper Mother of Dragons should.




For All

One-off gifts or create your own themed collection of stocking stuffers from the practical to the simply fun. Amazon Prime delivers rain or snow, Covid or no, faster than reindeer.




For Her

Can you think of half an occasion when Chanel wouldn’t be a thrill?




For Santa’s Workshop

For quality that’s easier on the pocket and hours of entertainment while saving the planet, you’ll find unique, antique and vintage treasures on 1st Dibs or Facebook Marketplace. Among my favorite finds to cheer up my office is this sleek Italian marble coffee table–fabulously glamorous even if I don’t drink coffee.

    The first sentence sums up our year very well. Despite a setback for me that took place last December, I looked forward to 2020 and better things. I consider myself an optimistic thinker. Throughout my life when they occurred I accepted disappointments and replaced them with thoughts of where I’d like to be and what would make me happy. More often than not my dreamy thoughts and expectations have come true. Some of it was hard work and some hope from within my heart. In spite of the pandemic, I was able to spend a few months, in segments traveling our country which I love. So in your words, Sharon, I did thrive and land on my feet. As 2021 approaches at least half of us are disappointed about one thing and it’s again time for optimism to kick in full throttle. The gift I have and wish for others is to spread the word that out of disappointment comes thoughts of better days ahead if you want it and work for it. I do and I will.

    My favorite photo, number one. From a tree that probably lived many hundreds of years and gave its life perhaps to build a home and also warm it with its branches for fuel in the fireplace. And finely to live again by supporting life from its trunk and its roots.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
