My Favorite Christmas Card

Seeing Crafty green poet's Christmas cards got me thinking that although I get many cards each year I don't ever recall receiving a handmade card from anyone. Ahhhh shame I hear you say;-) My mum on the other hand has received many from her friends and each Christmas gets them back out again with a big appreciative smile on her face. Handmade cards give you the feel good factor don't they. I once made a cross stitch card for the Morgan family up in Guisborough, it was a labour of love and took me ages to finish. It nearly didn't get sent as I'd grown quite attached to it in the end. However to cut a long story short here's my favourite Christmas card which was sent to me by my mum about three years ago, I've told her not to send me anymore because its nice enough to just dust off and enjoy all over again. As you can see I'm a bit of an old magpie when it comes to all things glittery and shiny.

Wet Fir (Watery Wednesday)

Inspired by T Bruce's Rose.
Usually wet fur means Harry the Lab has been out walking or swimming but not on this occasion. Apologies if this turns out to be a pine or spruce tree :-)

An Autumn Stash

Eat your heart out Vincent

Okay so they ain't sunflowers, but pretty as a picture nonetheless.These little rays of sunshine really woke me up on a wet chilly morning stroll through Pleasington cemetery's nature reserve garden.

Time And Tide Wait For No Man


The most frequent dreams I have tend to involve water, particularly heavy seas and tsunami experiences. On several different occasions I have dreamed of a beach location, the image of this place is etched in my mind. Id like to think the beach existed and is out there waiting for me to find it one day. Now I know what your thinking, really its not Sandsend :-)
