The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

the holiday spirit . . .

~Snowflakes & Santa~

Even though we have been experiencing the most amazing weather these past few days, it's all about snowflakes * Santa * and the holiday spirit in my little sparrow studio.

I keep this little black and white photo out year round. It's tucked into the ribbon covered memo board I have on the wall above my computer along with other family photos. 3 year old me, Brighton England , filled with joy and excitement at meeting Father Christmas. I still feel that childhood joy this time of the year .  It really is a time of magic . . .  a time to believe! 
Yesterday we had a wonderful drive to Alton taking in all the stunning autumnal colours along the way.
I was dropping off my art for the upcoming Artful Giving Gift Show and Sale.
Thrilled to be part of this juried holiday show featuring one-of-a-kind handcrafted gift items.
The show runs November 10th until January 2nd and is at Headwaters Arts in Alton, Ontario  which is located in the gorgeous Alton Mill.
An old mill building, Alton Mill is filled with inspirational little galleries inside and a sculpture garden on the grounds.
Such a lovely way to ease into the holiday season, start your shopping and support local artists.

Happy Tuesday
