Two Charming Christmas Books!

I received this beautiful children's book from Terra at Terra Garden. It was her giveaway prize which I was fortunate enough to win. When it came in the mail, I simply couldn't believe how beautiful all the artwork by David Hohn was. And the story God Gave Us Christmas by Lisa Tawn Bergren is itself a true Christmas charmer.

Additionally, Terra, along with several writer and artist friends has co-authored a Crafty Christmas book entitled A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts. This looks like a lot of creative fun-filled information and interesting items for the joy of Christmas. A perfect gift for self or friends! You can read more about it HERE.

Thank you so much Terra for this beautiful book!


  1. Good Morning Sweet Friend...
    I will have to check out this book, God Gave Us Christmas. I think it looks like one that I would enjoy sharing with my grandchildren. What a wonderful treasure you won. Each holiday you bring it out, you will remember that it was given with love by Terra. How very special.

    Have a beautiful day sweetie. I am working today, so off to business.

    Country hugs and much love...Sherry

  5. I love Children's books. I read the Polar Express every year. I wanted to buy a pop-up book in a museum store in NY. It was so lovely. I just didn't have any one to buy it for! children have grown too much! Happy Holidays!
