It's raining.
I love the rain.
It's supposed to snow tonight.
I love snow even more.

But for some reason I feel blue... a bit melancholy. The Christmas tree is up and a few more decorations are scattered about our home, but if it wasn't for my daughter putting up the tree and decorations, they wouldn't be up. In a way, holidays are now just another day to me.

As I've gotten older, and both my parents are gone, I understand why some people are sad this time of year. Sometimes I have to work at it to feel excited.

Don't misunderstand though, CHRISTmas is more than just a holiday day to me, it's something I have in my heart and soul forever, even on sad days. That's what gets me through sad days, having Christ in my heart.

As for the blues, this too shall pass ~ that I know ~ and tomorrow I will probably snap out of it and I'll be working non-stop on orders and housework and last minute shopping again.

French author, Charles Baudelaire, once said:
"I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no Melancholy."
And so, I thought I'd scatter this blog post with blue items in my home... a mixture of melancholy and beauty.

I think I'll go get a cup of hot tea and pop in a Jane Austen movie...

Thanks for visiting...

Take Care & God Bless,

End of Year SALE @ Honeysuckle Lane & Updated Online Markets

Once in a while I have a sale to change out seasonal items, clear out old inventory, and make room for new designs. For this sale, I've gathered together more than 20 items and listed them at 50% off. This benefits both you in getting a big discount and it benefits me in allowing me to start the new year with fresh ideas and creations.

If you'd like to visit and see what's on sale, come by any time after 8pm central tonight:

The sale goes through December 27th.


Simply Primitives and TDIPT Mercantile markets have updated for the 15th.

Be sure to visit all the other artists' pages while there.


I'm finishing up several wreath orders this week, and then making a few sets of paper wings, and then I hope to have a few days to breathe before Christmas comes and goes.

Hopefully I'll have a few days to blog and chat before I start on love tokens and new paper wreath designs or January.

Take Care & God Bless,
