Eve of Christmas

little cottage
Christmas tunes have been playing all week.
santa gourd
We've trimmed the tree,
black forest bark
baked tons of cookies,
tulips for the table
spruced up our little cottage,
and exhausted dear Birdie - if that's possible.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Roadside Attractions | December

spidery weed seeds
milkweed seeds
lantern pod

I've been absolutely captivated by the weed seeds and pods along the roadside.
They are just waiting to blow away on the next wintry wind.
Aren't they beautiful?

Monday, Monday

a large painting in progress
I'm working on a new covey of birds and hope to be finished this week!
Just saw a really fun and quirky movie over the weekend, Pirate Radio. Have you seen it?
Took a spectacular walk and photographed lots of weed seeds.
I'm still trying to get the hang of facebook and I'm pinning like mad.
My cookie books are out and I'm getting ready for my annual baking extravaganza.
Without a doubt it is Monday.
