Not even close

I feel so grateful when I realize I've noticed the beauty that surrounds me.  The sky the other night was beyond gorgeous.  The clouds looked particularly fluffy and lit from within.  
I tried to capture the beauty, but did not even come close.  I wanted to post them anyway just as a little reminder to myself to keep my eyes and my heart open. I grieve the times I haven't taken in my surroundings in all my rushing around. 
These photos look so flat compared to what my eyes drank in the other evening~but when I look at them, I can still see that wondrous sight.
I feel like I'm always running, trying to fit in one more thing.  When I take a moment to stop, take a breath and open my eyes, I'm always so dazzled by what I see, hear and feel.
I hope I never stop being awed by God's artistry.

Feeling Wintry

Once I typed that title, I had to look up to see if that was how you actually spell "wintry".
It is, but the definition surprised me and I have to say, I disagree.
  1. characteristic of winter, especially in feeling or looking very cold and bleak.

    "a wintry landscape"

Bleak?  Not for me.  I love the starkness of winter.  I love how it makes it easier to see the birds in the trees.
I love how the other day, I was able to spot a black squirrel (!!) at the edge of those "bleak" woods.
I love the change from the breathtaking colors of fall and the lushness of summer.

 I love sitting in my cozy studio and peering out at the chilly day.  Thinking about taking a bit of a break and getting out there to walk with the dogs in that briskness.

The shop has now been updated with all these wintry creations.  : )

Autumn Day Dreaming

I find myself daydreaming about the cooler days of fall lately.
Those days of boots and sweaters and scarves.
It's not that I'm wishing summer away, just longing for those days when I can walk without breaking into a sweat within the first few steps.
I think this shows in the things I've been working on lately.
