Yes, it's that time of year for me already when orders begin for the Holiday Season and Christmas is just around the corner! With that brisk chill in the air and Jack Frost just waiting to leap, these Autumn days grow short of light, giving me just the right mood in which to create a Victorian Christmas inside the bubble of my imagination. This idea of warming wassail or spiced apple cider, an old-fashioned pumpkin pie or gingerbread man, is all I need to summon a Dickens Christmas of cobbled lanes and merry Carolers singing: God Rest You Merry Gentleman. But, there I go again, and I'm suddenly hearing the jangle of bells from a far-off sleigh and a mighty Ho Ho Ho echo down my chimney. Oh, but not too fast! Santa has to get ready for Christmas! He's not even painted yet!
