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 first week of January . . .

Easing into the New Year with lots of lovely long, serene walks.  The temps have been cold, with everything from snow, rain & high winds, but no matter what the weather, it's all perfect for blowing out the cobwebs :-)
Tiny little paintings as well as some larger sized ones have already been created for upcoming exhibitions. I thought it would be nice to add a little hand painted tag to packaging of originals. . .  and I just love painting nests!
Comfort food for Veganuary . . .  my take on cabbage rolls . . .  cabbage, lentils, celery, onion, mushrooms, carrots, peppers, roasted tomatoes - YUM

"Everything we are,

everything we feel and fight

and fear and then embrace; every fibre

of muscle and being and heart.

And why shouldn't it take everything?

What are we saving ourselves for?

Let's spend ourselves completely on living the day we are given.

And then sleep deeply and dream ourselves into tomorrow

renewed and blessed to do it all again"

& sharing some lovely quotes xo
"Be grateful for all the moments gone but look forward to all the moments coming.

It's time to follow your heart more, darling.

To be even more daring.

To compromise so much less, to not settle when things don't feel in sync with your heart.

Let the coming year be the one where you really listen.

Where you truly listen to your heart

and spread your wings.

This is your life, so go, live it true, even from today darling.

Even from today"

-S.C. Lourie-
"You're like a little wild thing

that was never sent to school"

-Mary Oliver-

 "I held my breath as we do sometimes

to stop time

when something wonderful

has touched us. . . "

happy Sunday
