cheerful en curly hair, like his mama

dc bead

single rose petal in the rain barrel

looking at boxes filled with beads 
a slight excitement
sigh (almost inaudible)
pleasing to the eye
pleasing beyond the eye
like a single rose petal in the rain barrel

wonderful Norma came up with this weeks theme,
please take a look at her colorful blog for more shiny beads

very fine weekend to you all

cat and mouse

last week there was a mouse in our house, mice give me the creeps,
they are allright outside but they really scare me running through the rooms
i decided to take it as an indication; 
the owl, hare and fox got the company of a mouse (a wood mouse)
and when you say mouse, you also think cat
when i say mouse i also remember the 'mice stairs' i used to make
in my childhood

 yesterday  a butterfly was fluttering against  my studio window, it must
have been hibernating there somewhere but woke up way too soon, nothing but snow outside
(butterfly painting in the making now)

I'm making an animal garland for grandson
 it's his second birthday this month and he adores animals

books bought in the thriftstore; 
Jeanette Wintersons Lighthousekeeping is just beautiful

winter is still just grey
 stepping outside feels good though, need to feel the cold air in my lungs,
the smell of rain falling on a winter garden
coming in from my  walk the house feels like  warm embrace

mild winter

and following the winter owl,
 a mild-winter hare that just needs some finishing touches
