What can be Said of New Year’s Rhymes?

Monday, December 31st, 2012

What can be said in New Years rhymes?
That has not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go
we know we dream we dream we know
We rise up laughing with the light
we lie down weeping with the night
we hug the world until it stings
we curse it then and sigh for wings
we live, we love, we woo, we wed
we wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead
we laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear
and thats the burden of a year

We stabilized the base of the tree and the tree stand and got it back up yesterday.

It certainly makes a house feel homey.

Ornaments by Junker Jane and Lelainia Lloyd

I’m a big Junker Jane fan

I love the fabric that the green monster is made with. The piece is a reminder to me to keep jealousy at bay 😀

This ornament by Lalainia Lloyd is one of my favorites, so cleverly composed.

Links for both artists are in my side bar and they both have etsy shops. BUY HANDMADE!

Giclees of this original painting; Girl Looking Askance, are now posted to my etsy shop.

I had meant to start posting ornaments from my collection, of all handmade, artist made ornaments but I have bee so sick the past week I did not even get started. So. I’ll post three today to make up for lost time and also one that I designed last year for sale in my etsy shop.
This is one available in my shop:

From my collection this one is made by artist “Dolly Gagging”

This one is by artist Diane Redmore Moore:

I do so enjoy my unique ornaments!

Also I have been working on little collage folios, they are about 4 x 5 inches and can hold atcs or aceos or little photographs or they can be stared at and displayed 😀
this is one of them:


I used thick canvas and they fit so nicely in the hand!
