:: trying to curb my coffee habit and drink more tea. oregon chai with almond milk and a bit of honey has been my favorite. it's a warm retreat in the busy days. this week especially : my last work week before the big art show next sunday + the last week to get orders out for holiday delivery. it's going to be busy….

:: the sunroom. every morning. soft. grey. quiet. 

:: we found a local farm, as in two miles away local, that let us come shovel a stall full of old manure. she was a gem of a lady & the work went quick. we filled the trailer in no time. or so it seemed. the garden dreams are looking good…..

:: she spilled seeds everywhere when she fed the birds, but we enjoyed the guest who cleaned them up.

:: more trees. because for now i am in love with their lines against the sky and their sleeping shades of grey. the woods are sleeping out back and all is still…..

 

Tell me, what gloaming bits are calling to you, pulling at you to walk slowly, notice them & be still?

Do share…..

xo,

  1. I love photo number 6. I can feel the gray, cold, dampness in it. Your den looks like a great place to enjoy the seasons without getting out – the light and views! Enjoy these special days.

  2. Your table looks great!! I'll remember to take pictures to share mine this time! My oldest daughter is coming with me to help, so I'll actually be able to leave my booth and take a few photos of the event. It's 10-6! My longest event ever. Setting up the booth is so nerve-wracking right? This is my first time having a booth vs a table. It's an 8×6 space. I rearranged furniture + table bits for over two hours (blushing here) to get it right. I really have *so*much* to try and display. The banners are the hardest. Anyhow….. didn't mean to write you a whole book 🙂

  3. it’s really been a fun change to capture darkness instead of light……. and yes, the den/sunroom is such a magic space. we just put the tree up in there and joe & i sat with a glass of wine looking at it and the outdoors. often times, we still cant believe we live here……

  5. It’s been such a crazy week getting ready. I’ve been in the studio 8+ hours every day this week. Plus so many orders in the shop. I am beyond grateful to be busy, but goodness…… I’ll be glad to have some quiet time when it comes 😉

  6. Glad to know I am not the only one who loves that bit of darkness. Must be my coastal Alaska roots. Winter is a time of rest & renewal and something about the cold dampness gives us pause to slow our pace. It’s something I sorely missed in our years down south…… I’m glad to be back to it.
