What I want from Santa...

Since I can't get the war to end and world peace for my Xmas gift...I will settle for something else in the meantime...I was just given the link/info. to the coolest Halloween item I have EVER seen...Lionel's Halloween Train! I had a Lionel train set as a child and loved it. I have wanted another one ever since! IF I ever become a rich and successful artist, this would be on the TOP of my to buy list! Sigh...a guy can dream!

AND...I have been GOOD all year!!! '-)

Hello Chris!

Oh, I have been missing SO much! I just love all of your recent creations!

That train is amazing, what (big) kid would not want it?? Hee hee..

Thank you for all of your sweet comments, you know I am a big fan of yours :).

Hey Kitty!

Thanks so much for stopping by...always a pleasure hearing from you!

You are just the sweetest lady!

Man, on the train...I am already figuring out my finances for the month! LOL '-)



Hi Chris, I love your Grandmother's pretty in pink Christmas decorations on your vintage aluminum tree. As usually your artwork just sparkles!!!

AND you are doing just what I said on my Blog, filling your holiday season with magick, good friends, good music, good food & most of all enjoying the blessings one surrounds themselves with!

Why spend hard earned cash on a Halloween train when you can make one yourself... It's more fun to create too! Just buy a less expensive new or vintage (preferably new/used) train set & add your own art creativity to it!!!

I bought a wonderful radio control Christmas train set for Tom last year. It was the Union Pacific Coastal Express with real puffed smoke. It has 33 pieces & 20 feet of track so it can be placed under any size tree. I think I'll decorate it with OOAK Halloween art. Another great Christmas Cross Decorating Idea, don't you think?

Merry Hallomas With XOXOs, Lyndy

I must admit, I have always wanted a train and just imagine what kind of scenery could we build?!

That train is so cool and would look awesome around your Halloween tree! You newest work is wonderful. I think some of your best. Good luck with the auctions!

Hey Chris, when you become rich and famous you can buy me one of those trains, too!

Love your Santa holding the JOL's!

I think that would be a great asset to your black tree. What a great idea.

Hi Chris~
I love the quote at the top of your blog. I had to do research paper on Picasso in college and ran across that quote. I thought it was cool then.
