Delightful find

I went to the Goodwill Outlet this week in search of some auction items that could be up-cycled.  I found this little treasure. It reminded me that in this new year I will need to improve my aim. After all, you can't hit the target if you don't aim at it!  Another important aspect of shooting a bow and arrow is to be aware of the breath. With all that has gone on this past year I have sometimes forgotten to simply breath. I also think I should find some good tights, maybe a pretty little frock? Maybe I should watch "Brave" or "Hunger Games" again? Maybe I just need the red slippers?

Happy New Year!

Winter Tea Party

A few days ago we had a little skiff of snow. It was lovely.
Little feet left their marks.

Neighborhood children had time to make a snowman - school 2 hours late.

My little studio looked so festive with a coating of snow.
Giggle, and the tiny woodstove covered by the umbrella.
Giggle, isn't it funny?
The week before I discovered the stove while root'in around in the barn
for the outdoor Christmas decorations.
What a hoot!
I found a piece of leftover chimney up in the rafters and
 soon the old stove was hot'in up the tea pot.
Join me if you will!
I will stoke up the wood stove and put on the teapot.
Wrapped yourself in bright woolen blanket,
let your legs dangling over the edge of my big veranda.
We will celebrate the season with a cup of good cheer.
