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 Christmas

Here I am again with a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. This card is from their Vintage Christmas double cdrom. I just love the images on this cdrom and most of you know by now,,I have a passion for all things could be because I'm of quite a vintage myself I thought that I'd better get this card blogged now before we get to the 4.30 cut off point of BT. It has taken me all day to load the cards that I've connection machine has been flashing like a disco and orange with hardly a sign of the blue ready to go light.

At the moment, all is quiet..the kittens have managed to tire themselves out..thank goodness. I love them all to bits..but they are wearing me They manage to do something naughty and then manage to look so cute at the same time. But as I've said..they are all asleep and peace is all around.

The parlour looks as if a bomb has hit. I have boxes of crafting goodies all over the place and the rest of the space is taken up with kitten blankets. Later on I will be on a mission to sort it all out and to put away everything that has been used. I want to do the bathroom later and put all the now clean cat blankets away. The major thing will be trying to get Nicademus to leave the airing cupboard..he has decided that because the water heater is's the place to be. It annoys me to death because it isn't that long since I washed everything that was in there..and now the top layer is covered in Nicodemus fur..bless

Well now I'm off for another coffee...some days I definitely need more caffeine than usual. Somedays I seem to be running on the coffee and it's only the thought of the next one that keeps me The weather here has been unbelievable..I've lived here for over 25 years and I have seen areas flooded that have never been flooded before. One elderly lady who has lived in the village for all of her life has been flooded for the first time and has to have had sandbags up her doors because the drains just couldn't cope. Fields turned into lakes and people having to wade through water up past their knees. A serious amount of water has landed in a very short time. For me it's the perfect time to stay in and craft. And that's what I'm off to do. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
