A girl's best friend....














 I can't help "collecting" things....
rusty nails .... driftwood ... stones ... twigs ...
feathers ... etc. etc ...they all go in my stash...
A simple walk down the beach is really a hunting and gathering expedition ! 
And my latest project - a needle felted dog - is a great opportunity to use some of my finds.... 
Have a nice cosy week !

A winter's day....





It's nice to get out for a walk when the winter sun is shining....amongst the lovely big specimen trees in a municipal park I found wonderful wooden sculptures... a giant acorn...and some fish....
Wishing you all peace...

Mother Earth, Sister Moon....









So we went moon hunting up on the fell...it was such a nice experience being outside in nature in the dark... a great way to reflect on the vastness of the universe and the very smallness of myself.....
a wonderful feeling of being at one with the earth's nocturnal rhythm ....no distractions...just the earth... the moon... me and my sister...(and a hot flask of coffee !) .....nourishing for the soul...cleansing for the spirit...
try it....you won't be disappointed...

Silent was the flock in woolly fold....

Beautiful reliefs on our local cenotaph...



a houseleek...such a wonderful colour!


It's mighty crisp and wintry on the local fells....
the snow brings a sense of calm and quiet...
"silent is the flock in woolly fold"



Wishing you all a "Hygge" weekend....

November...








November has brought a chill wind ....I feel a little spoilt by the warm and sunny autumn we have enjoyed...but now it's time to get out the woollies, light the candles and get cosy !
November is also the time for us to enjoy a visit from the St Petersburg Choir of the Resurrection...an annual treat at our local church....the singers were wonderful as usual ....a perfect rendition of Ave Maria and it was hard not to cry at such a beautiful voice ...I love all kinds of music from rock to blues etc but the music that reaches deep into the soul...is a special kind.....yes it makes me want to cry but oh such sweet tears.....bliss !

Fire in the park....




 



 















A walk in the local park ... all the trees aglow with wonderful fiery colours.... juicy lime greens and acid yellows.... autumn has been kind to us....there are still so many roses blooming, their delicious scent filling the air....breathe deeply, enjoy the moment.... with the setting sun on our backs we headed home ....time for tea...Gail x
