Thought I'd share a few snippets of our snow dusting yesterday. Seems winter has begun. It was so nice yesterday to be home decorating our tree, watching the big flakes come down! I awoke early to a gorgeous winter wonderland.
Don't foget to refill the feeders!
A new batch of homemade vanilla my daughter made. Still infusing and won't be ready for awhile yet. It's normally in the dark herb cabinet. I couldn't resist taking out for picture and a sniff.. this will be used for baking and fragrance crafting!
Father Christmas... lovingly watches over all our woodland creatures.
The fun thing about doing this, at least for me, was sniping and collecting little bits from the numerous catalogs that get sent out every season-- way more than I need or even want, and to just radomly cut out the various pictures that spoke to me, without much thought, just because I liked them and wanted them there. And after receiving some rather unsettling news in the office today, it was so soothing just to come home and carve out a few quiet minutes to light my candle, and layout my scraps in collage fashion while basking in that full moon light through my kitchen window.
The other great thing was that I didn't even think to use any of my creative stash, just the bits collected from "junk" mail, and the catalogs were then put in for recycling. So no expensive items were used, no pre-determined plan.
Definitely a bit of theme emerged... longing for composure and grace in the midst of hard changes going on right now, the desire for peace, comfort, and time at home for Christmas, nurturing myself and family, magic and nature, all of these things and much more to reflect on for later. I look forward to seeing other dream boards and hope that our collective energies will manifest our dreams into realities!
