A Winter's Day

I ran across this blog today.  It's called Vintage Fairy Tales.

Go take a look.

 It's quite different.  

She has few words to say and I love her photos.

I'm thinking I'm a bit 

well, A LOT 


Today I'll be less wordy.   More pictures.  Less words.

A winter's day.

On a deep and dreary January morn.

The sun refuses to show her face and


I can't stand it!

Ooooooooh.  Better.
Much, much, better.

Oh, yeah.
Much better.

Whenever I feel a bit down about the gloomy winter weather, I remember the hot days last summer and how I would have loved a little gloom then! Wouldn't it be great to get the seasons on an every other week schedule just to change things up a bit? Loved your remembrances of last summer and really loved the video. I'll have that song in my head all day! Hope the sun comes out for you soon!

Although the gray does make me down sometimes, your photos really look so calm and serene. But the tomato and cuc and flowers are my fav! Every day we are closer to spring!

Hi there!
Thank´s for your SWEET comment on my blog
AND for being very supportive!!!
Yes, the world of The Vintage Fairy Tales is a bit crazy I know,
I just can´t help the things that are happening there:)
Love your jewelry on Etsy and I appreciate your tutorials,they are great!
I love working with mixed media, especially working with paper.

it was like an intelligent test....
