a week begins with ...


soft shades

of cream & white

a purposeful statement

how about you ...


a bit of bright texture

with a shot of vitamin C



hand made paper

with vintage lace wing

resting on block of smooth cedar



as this week begins and this month is almost at an end

I am grateful for your special comments in this post

I hold them close to my heart

he is doing well . eating . softly wagging his tail

and resting in the grass outside the studio window

this blog space will be quiet for a time . I will at the wooden table

simply creating for my shop . listening to the birds in the bare branches

embracing the bright blue winter sky and crisp air . thinking of you with a smile

Thinking extra much of you, and your sweet Sam, Elk... may your quiet time bring small joys, dear memories, reflection, grace and all good things... I adore your cedar birds, and the shot of citrus lifts my winter-dented spirits, my friend. :o) ((LOVE & HUGS))

I am so sorry to hear about your pup. I dont know what I will do when my pup Chloe's time comes to an end. Next to my husband, she is just my BFF.

Lovely photos as always.

What a beautiful and peaceful post. It calms me to read it! I see we read many of the same wonderful women's work. I hope you'll stop by The Marmelade Gypsy some time when you have a chance.
