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.

JB-Crafting Supplies...Who needs a coffee?

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I blogged this card on their blog on Monday, but I just thought that I should share it will you all, as I know that a number of you really love the House Mouse family. And I thought that it would give you all a giggle..knowing me as you do and knowing my need for a regular caffeine This card is made using the House Mouse Decoupage cdrom, brought to us by Joanna Sheen. I have decided to make all the house mouse featuring tea or coffee, to be framed for my kitchen.  Every time I see one of these images, I can't help but I thought it would be nice to make a feature of them.

Below is a close up of the decoupage. I always find the little mice a little fiddly but they are so worth the effort. And to be honest a large number of the images on this decoupage cdrom are really easy to cut out and you can decide just how many layers that you want to do.

The sun is shining again here in the mountains and the house is a cat free zone..for a while. Sprout is doing really well. I think that he understands that it's doing him good. He came out of the cage last night and had a walk round, ate some biscuits and then went back to the pen on his own. He had the choice of where to sleep but decided to lie down in the pen, with the door open. This morning at their breakfast time he came to the bowls with everyone else but then waited and demanded that he be fed in the At the moment he is fast asleep, looking very cosy. Jeffrey is looking a bit rough..I have cleared the fur from where the magpies attacked him to clean his wounds..he does look as if he's going it won't be long until it has all grown back. He has recovered his old personality now he has gotten over the attack.I still think that he will have learnt his lesson...he doesn't seem to be going very far from home...bless him. All the others are well and enjoying the sunshine. Living here they have to..nobody knows how long it will last.

If you remember I was given some trees to plant on the land. Virgo man planted them all and I have to report that they are doing really well. Lots of new leaves and I'm really pleased. My friend the pa bought me some herbs for my birthday..and of the four she bought me ..3 are flourishing but it looks as if I have killed my doing nothing. It looked wonderful when she brought it in, but within days it turned up it's toes. The gentleman she bought it off said that it had to be in the house and that the others could go out. So the basil came in and promptly died and the others that were left out are all who knows. I have a money tree in the parlour that needs repotting but I have asked Sparkle to do it..I just don't want these non green fingers of mine to touch it. I just love it so much.

Well the coffee is calling and after a much needed caffeine hit, I will be back to making moths. It's coming along ok at the moment but I never know how well they look until they are finished. I will share them with you when they are finished. So until tomorrow..BT willing...take care and happy crafting.
