yes.... more deer!But I don't think they know that he's behind the snowman watching them...
The entire piece stands just over a foot tall...
Don't forget to look at all the other artists' items while you are there!
Now I am off to go find more glass domes and cloches.......

I wanted to share the simple yet breath-taking beauty of our Creator's handiwork with you today:
Whiteness glimmers in
Dawn bends through the pane
Fog, soft as cobwebs
excerpt from Fog
...as if in a fog of feather-light
a rusty mind in its autumn
its winged power.

After I was married and began having children, I learned the benefits of shopping at thrift stores instead of the "new" stores. I started going to save money on a limited budget.
Then came the other joys of weekly trips to the thrift and junk stores ~ finding long lost treasures hidden at the bottom of a box, imagining the life of the previous owners, touching the pieces, feeling the textures, and knowing there is a story with each item.
The most precious benefit of all was spending time with Mama. I'd call her the night before or early that morning and ask if she wanted to go the Goodwill or Salvation Army, or any of the several shops that we visited. She usually answered yes before I could get the entire question asked! It was more than thrifting and junking. It was the time we spent driving to and from those places. It was the time we spent talking and being together as mother and daughter... and as best friends.

I have a few more wreaths to finish up and get listed on etsy. I also have a couple more that need their center medallions ~ these were special orders ~ and I got a bit behind while feeling under the weather and helping my youngest get his second year of college sorted out ~ among a few other things going on.
