A New Year's Wish

Getting ready to take flight from 2017 into 2018
 from my homeland to yours
 I have one wish and it's simple
 - Be happy and Be healthy. 
I wish this for everyone!
(Spoonbills getting ready to fly in the early morning
on our wetland)
It almost could be a painting!


Of all the paths you take in life
make sure a few of them
are in nature!

Some new eco-dyed pages and a
small  journal
created with eco-dyed silks
to share with you in the
New Year
along with some new artwork!


Thank you so much for your friendship, loyalty and kindness
with your visits and comments
 throughout the year!
It is so really appreciated by me!
I hope 2018 shines brightly for you too!

Christmas Vignette

As Christmas is the time for celebrating
the birth of Christ in our home
it has also become
customary for us to celebrate
with a Christmas Vignette which I love
to prepare this time of year! 


There are several different events this time of year


you may be celebrating any one of these:
Christmas Day
St. Nicholas Day
Summer or Winter Solstice
Boxing Day or whatever day 



 but it is a time we come 
together as family or friends



to share gifts, festive foods, beverages, good company
as well as

meeting up with old family members to party
to share stories, laughs, yarns 


 and often in the background are the simple reminders
with angels, candles, christmas trees and



 awakening us to the simple joys of giving and sharing

and the importance of the visitation
of the Divine to the planet earth!
Wishing everybody a really Happy Festive Season
in whichever way you celebrate
and thank you so much dear friends for
your continued support in visiting my blog 
throughout the year
wishing you also a prosperous 
happy and healthy New Year!
May your God Bless You!

Sincerely,  Suzy xox

Resident Swans and their Signets

As this can often be a very busy and anxious
time around preparing for Christmas
I just wanted to share
these beautiful 
to bring a little peace and tranquility 
to your days as you go about
planning what your Christmas Day
should really be celebrating!


 This pair of beautiful black swans


obviously felt it was time to introduce


their amazing offspring to us up close!



 They came right up to us and out of the water
with no fear of getting too close!


They are so graceful and stately in the water
and look so elegant when paddling in line!
following the direction of
their parents!

 I hope these gorgeous creatures signify to us
why there is no need to rush around
seeking those things which, 
in the end, are really unimportant!

May be these images help us reflect upon what really
is important this time of year - such as
serenity, peace, love and sharing friendliness
towards each other!

Happy Festive Season to each and all of you
my friends!
