2013.... I haven't got used to writing it yet. Yesterday I signed two papers 2012. It will take a while, it always does. Normally I have only just got used to writing the new year when it becomes old once again. What is it with this thing called time that a moment can seem forever and a day can seem a moment? Christmas came and went in a flurry of birthdays, glitter and merriment. The tree is still fresh and has hardly dropped any needles. Every now and then it shares memories of the forest and the scent of pine is caught. Just for a moment I am in the woods, a cold, crisp snow smell, the howl of a lone wolf and snoring of sleepy bears.
It felt sad to have to take it down this afternoon.
New years day we woke to sun. I wondered what all the brightness was as I had almost forgotten that there was a golden ball of fire up there after the endless days of rain. ;)
There is one addition that arrived on Christmas eve that won't be getting put away in the box with the other decorations. Let me introduce you...
Yes, he will be living inside, though not where he is in this picture. At the time there was nowhere else to put him, but now the tree has gone I shall have a shuffle about of things. I was thinking of stringing some white lights around his antlers, what do you think?
I haven't got any new artwork or creations that I have made to show you so I thought I'd share these for no other reason than how pretty they look. Bath melts that I was very lucky to receive as Christmas gifts. They look too good to use, maybe that's why I need to record them?
These ones below are from Lush one of my most favourite shops. Again they look too good to use and smell quite frankly.......Lush! ;)
Thank you for all your comments and good wishes that you leave here.
Happy new year! xxx
