Wintersky

Baby, it's really cold outside. I mean, as my husband would say, "butt freezing". We've had a little arctic air enfold us in it's frigid vice grip and it's insanely cold.

Blue-chairs

A very short walk out in the "garden" – it's more like a scene from Dr. Zhivago today – revealed some surprising color…

Pot-head 

…my garden goddess gathering a snowy mane upon her lovely countenance…..

Red-berries 

…a pop of crimson a fiery contrast to the glacial white….

Milk-weeds


…and the milweed pod's vessel is a nice catch for the season's powdery silence.

Meanwhile….back inside the warm confines of my studio my fingers have been diligently applying thread and beads to this lovely fiber vessel for a friend's sister for Christmas.

Stay warm, curl up. Breath. Make tea. Repeat.

    Oh…COOL!
    I LOVE the new pod case.
    Great colors and a good vibe. I’m vowing to stay indoors too. It’s the kinda cold where your breath freezes in your throat.
    Staggering about in the twilight, feeling for my hot cocoa….
