~ Christmas morning,

peonies, pine, & maileg bunnies :)

~ Our 6ft Paper Tree

At about, oh 3am, {& after total exhaustion from a)last minute Christmas preparations & b)a Christmas Eve soiree involving a late night screening of the Hobbit ~ love that Bard! :) }.. . Mum had the "you beaut" idea to make a giant paper tree with all the gorgeous flocked, foiled & otherwise verdant gold papers we had acquired on a prior trip to PaperSource, & hang it from a wall{to compliment our petite one}
Being the dear & obliging daughter that i am :) {knowing how to wrangle paper & scissors couldn't hurt :) } i began this mammoth task with only hours before sunrise...
& really, the photos can't do it justice, it was loverly!!! very special...i'd love to try again next year with a little more time to spare <3

~ savoring,

{that last trace of Christmas elegance! }

*O Christmas Tree ~

a Christmas Compote {fragrant pine!},
my Christmas Colour Palette ~ mint green, chartreuse,  golden dusk, silvered rust, & ruby {or strawberry} red
petite New York trees,{& the wealth of a garland~enveloped in the honeyed realm of this morning's precious Light}
a succulent wreath,
Adorning bokeh,
sketching that Blessed Moment, the day upon which All others Depend ~ Dear Nativity!
Miss Liberty ~ How Tall She Stands!
& the Warmth of the Season, {Abrim!}

lovely thoughts & droplets of gold from these sap covered hands tonight

~ bits & bobs

places ive wandered {those escalators!}, patterns we walk,

my Little Matryoshkas

{as ever a part of my heart as the lifebeat itself
