'O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?'
~Percy Bysshe Shelley
There are many people who love winter - but I am not one of them! At first, I appreciate the silence, the magic of the first snowfall, the clean white landscape, the cosiness of a warm fire...but before long, by late November and December especially, as I watch the sun rise later and set earlier and feel the early darkness and the cold - by 5pm, I want a quilt and a puffy pillow and a nap. It seems the day is over and I haven't eaten dinner yet!
And then, the winter solstice arrives - and with it, the knowing that nature has swung around that darkest corner and the light of SPRING is a beacon once again. Yes!

The Christmas rush seems to have slowed down resulting in time to create a few new designs and new editions of a few older ones! Even before the holidays are over, my thoughts turn to lighter colors and dare I say it, SPRING! The light was perfect and sent me rushing for my camera ~ what a FUN morning! Enjoy!

...like everyone who celebrates the holidays, I've been a busy little bee the past couple of weeks - shopping, wrapping, mailing, decorating and a little partying (more about that soon!) ...thankfully, all the preparation is becoming celebration time and I'm in the holiday spirit today! Enjoy these wonderful Etsy artists and I hope you are beginning your celebrating time as well! Happy holidays, everyone!
