How are you doing with all the Festive bustle?
Isn't this the loveliest old card. Looks awfully like a Margaret Tarrant to me.
from Leaping Frog designsI think that if one more person asks me at the check-out, or anywhere else at all for that matter, "Are you all organised for Christmas?" I might be rude to them!!
No, I'm not...organised!
I'm in a muddle, but I am doing my best & too bad if some bits get missed out!
And does it really matter?
A few weeks ago I found this interesting vase arrangement at Connections..I liked it's lines.
I even have my own produce presently.
When I went to my organics shop on Monday I found a friend, hanging on a twig by the counter.
Lily is a garden fairy too.
It doesn't get dark here until pretty late just now, as we are right on the summer solistice so we don't have as much opportunity as the other side of the world to enjoy pretty lights & candles, but wherever find ourselves, light seems to help create an atmosphere that bathes everything in a mellow glow & soothes away the jagged edges of crankiness & the demands of the season.
David came home last Saturday.
Violin in hand, boxing gloves in the suitcase.
Great to have him here though.
I shant explain, just now, but this is The Quantum Tree.
When I saw this picture on Pinterest the other day I thought, ah...perfect!
Perfect gifts for those we love.
Jar of sweetness.
Jar of tenderness.
Jar of kisses.
Jar of smiles.
Jar of love words.
And you, dear ones..well I am so glad to have you as my friends & visitors.
I do hope that your Christmas time is rich & loving & that you would find peace in the busy-ness, comfort for the losses of the year & hope in your heart for the year ahead.
I'd love to see you again soon, after the bustle is over.
