Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Sailor Beware

I just love this sassy sailor girl from Jiggery Makery.She is available to buy as a digi from Jiggery Makery and you can have lots of fun deciding what she will say and what colours she is going to wear. The exciting news is that there is now a full design team over at Jiggery Makery and I'm so pleased that 2 very talented ladies have joined. I would say that we all have very different styles and that in itself can only be a good thing. New ideas and creations that we will be able to share. We will be each blogging once a week for the design team and my day is now you will know if it's Friday then it's Jiggery Makery. I'm so looking forward to this. It means that at least once a week I get to play with something new.

As I'm sitting here in the parlour I can see a black cat with a blue tail and bottom and a dog with a raspberry Yes the decorating is in full swing...the bathroom is nearly finished..well it's now blue. I've still got to add the silver leaf but I have to wait for the order to arrive. And of course Raven had to help..hence the blue The stairs and landing are now raspberry..I intend to glitter them tomorrow. The kitchen is just magnolia..but I see it as a blank background for all the art work that I've collected. My front door is now black..just waiting for a bit of decoration I feel.So it's nearly getting to the fun part..putting the artwork up and some quirky little additions to each space. In my parlour I have witches on broomsticks flying around my centre intend to have fish flying round the bathroom ceiling. And I have to begin the fairy door for the landing..I will share it with you once it's finished. I'm still working on a plan for the bedroom. I had to laugh today at my painter..he said why on earth are you bothering to have this skirting board painted..all the cats want to help. He has spent the morning removing cat hair from the paint. I told him that they were only trying to help. I can't share what he

Today I'm going to make a decision on the colour for my floor..I am still leaning towards red and glittery but I'm off to look at my options. The one thing that I can tell you is that it won't be pastel Well the coffee is calling..that's the first on the list and then it's off to look at floor colours. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
