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.

31 Days of Halloween.....Day 27

Day 27 of the 31 days challenge...I can't quite believe that I've nearly got Today's page features this great image from SLS Lines. It's one of my favourites and I've used it on lots of different projects, so it seemed so right to include it in my Halloween book. I've always craved a top hat but just can't afford doesn't help having a large's a family trait so I was doomed from the start. I love the photos of the steam punkers wearing their top hats.

It's a damp and cold day today here in the mountains..even the postman complained today. I've got my legs up and Milky has taken up residence on them..much to Ravens disgust. She keeps coming and trying to get Milky off..but to no avail. All the other cats are dotted around the parlour in their favourite places and are showing no interest in going outside. And I have to say, I don't blame them. I'm sat here surrounded by my afternoon projects. I am intending to have a play with my brushos and to create some backing papers. I just love the way the colours explode. I think that the black is my favourite because you really have no idea what you're going to get. For the past couple of weeks I've been looking for my spray bottle to use with the brushos..I know that it's in a box with my mica powders but the whole thing has disappeared and it was driving me crazy. Then last night I saw a spray bottle in my bedroom that was from an old air freshener..and I thought..that'll do the job. So this morning I rinsed it out and filled it with water and hey ho..I'm ready to go. No doubt now that I've done this the box of mica papers will turn up waving at me going I've been all the Isn't that always the case.

Well the coffee is calling and then I'll be getting very messy...I just love it. No doubt there will be multi coloured cats by the end of the day..they won't be able to resist helping.It's going to be a very old fashioned dinner tonight..liver and onions with potatoes and green beans. It seems just right on a day like this. It was one of my Grandfathers favourite dinners and he always requested it once a week..So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.

  1. You will find the spray bottle soon - now that you have found a replacement and don't really need it right now.
    Supper sounds good - I love liver (cook with the onions but
    I don't eat them). I'll be over later. :-)
    Love the skull with his top hat - ready to party.
    thanks for sharing

  2. Eeeek! I love his hat! That voodoo doll on there is giving me the ebils!
