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.

Decoupage Delights...Vintage 8x8 Lady with Roses

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. It features one of the 8x8 cards which will appear on the forthcoming Vintage Fashion cd. There is something about this image that I love. Perhaps to me this is my ideal of what sums up vintage to me.  The image comes with the decoupage and the background already designed.I have decoupaged the image and have embellished using diecut leaves, fabric roses and some diamante buds. The diecut leaves I cut out in ordinary white card and then coloured them with my promarkers. Also I must let you all know that there is a freebie on the Decoupage Delights facebook page on make sure to pop over then.

What a day today..the wind is raging and the sky is a funny colour. The last few days we have had rain, hail, sunshine and whoever knows what comes next. I was lucky enough the other day to receive a pair of glorious winter socks. My friend Sunshine had brought them back from Iceland for me and they are truly wonderful. They are a red/burgundy colour and will be fantastic as my new winter socks.Mind you if the weather continues like this...they may well be on my tootsies before the end of the

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to go down and cook the may be pasta tonight..but who really knows until I'm stood in front of the Wherever you are..keep warm. Until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
