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 Postcards

For the second time today...I'm back..with my design team make for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. I just loved this vintage image with the little girl, flowers and butterfly. It is an 8x8 card and is fully decoupaged. I just love the colours and as you all know, I do have a bit of a thing for vintage.

I took the second photo so that you can see the decoupage and the shadows that it creates. of the  Why not pop over to the Decoupage Delights face book page and take a look. There is a great offer on for the pre order of the upcoming cd and flowers. I so excited and looking forward to it.

Well what a day it is in the mountains today. It is so hot that I'm sat in the chair with the electric fan pointed at Every so often we have a rain shower and then it stops and just gets hotter.I don't know where most of the cats are..they've probably gone some where shady. It made me laugh yesterday when I had first put the fan on. Raven ran in the window and threw herself in front of me, directly in the fan draft and sighed...I think she must have been a little

Yesterday I also received confirmation of the's going to be held on the 17th July..a year and a half after the death of my Henry. What amazes me is that they have called no-one that was there that day. I just have to hold it together until then and then when it's over I can decide what road I'm going to take. At the moment every thing seems to be in the air. My head is full of questions that I'm now doubting that they will ever be answered. And the way I look at matter what is said, nothing can change the fact that my Henry is gone and my life is a sadder place without him. I love to craft and it has helped so much, keeping me busy but I just feel as if I'm treading water. Since he died it has been a case of..get through the day...get through the funeral...get everything sorted..and now it's get through the inquest and then...I don't know. I'm hoping that I will be able to sort things out after the inquest but we will have to see.

Well the coffee is calling and I have a pile of work to I need to get my big girl pants on and get on with it. Where ever you are, I hope that the weather is being kind to you. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
