Floral Delight


Flowers don't worry about 
how they're going to bloom. 
They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

Merry Christmas


Silent night, Holy night 
All is calm, all is bright 
Round yon virgin, mother and child 
Holy infant, tender and mild 
Sleep in heavenly peace, 
Sleep in heavenly peace. 

Silent night, Holy night 
Son of God, love's pure light 
Radiant beams from thy holy face 
With the dawn of redeeming grace, 
Jesus, Lord at thy birth 
Jesus, Lord at thy birth. 

Silent night, Holy night 
Shepherds quake, at the sight 
Glories stream from heaven above 
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah. 
Christ the Savior is born, 
Christ the Savior is born 

 - Franz Gruber

The Nativity


“The place that the shepherds found was not an academy or an abstract republic, it was not a place of myths allegorized or dissected or explained or explained away. 
It was a place of dreams come true.”

It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.

It Was Our First!


Hubby and I participated in our first Craft show yesterday!







Jim has developed a process for mounting my images on to solid hard woods, Oak and Poplar.  
These are sized at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 (image is 4 x 4)

He also made 2 illuminated display walls to showcase the images, which were mounted on easels.


I also had 8 x 10s and 5 x 7s available along with some note cards.  I can see more of these shows in our future!

Tufted Titmouse On High Alert



Laughter is a sunbeam of the soul.
 ― Thomas Mann


This little Tufted Titmouse looks like he is on High Alert.  They  stretch themselves to look taller when another bird is around - or at least that is how it seems to me.  I've seen chickadees do this too.  There is never a dull moment watching these sweet little birds!

Female Downy Woodpecker



As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. 

They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.
 — Laura Ingalls Wilder

Dream-Dust


Gather out of star-dust, 
Earth-dust, 
Cloud-dust, 
Storm-dust, 
And splinters of hail, 
One handful of dream-dust, 
Not for sale.
 ― Langston Hughes

Have you read this poem before? 
 I just read it this morning ...... and it really spoke to me.
We all need a handful of dream-dust!!
My interpretation of dream-dust is that little sprinkle of confidence in your mind that you can actually attain your dreams!  I'm not sure if that is the way he meant it or if he meant it in terms of sleep.  
Any thoughts on this?

Virginia Farmland

One of the things you learn when you live on a farm is that change comes at you whether you´re ready for it or not. Every season is punctuated with its own smells and tastes and you find yourself looking forward, waiting for the next thing to come along so you can take a bite of it.

The Last Party of the Year



Autumn is Nature's last party of the year. And dressing for the occasion, forests don their brightest attire, while the creatures follow suit with plush coats of fur. As the birds savor their final flights in the waning embers of light, Nature's children scamper about in search of manna for their winter pantries, pausing long enough to frolic in the heaps of newly fallen leaves.
 "Autumn Suppers," Orange Coast Magazine, Oct. 1983
