Alas a beautiful rose to inspire the arrival of the Holiday season.
I am so sorry for the loss of your emerald eyed kittie.Though his time with you was short, his presence will linger forever.
I can only wish that where ever we go when we leave this Earth that we will once again be reunited with those we hold dear in our hearts especially our critters.
Thank you Annabelle for visiting my blog and leaving your endearing comments.I hope you will feel inspired to call again as I will to yours.

Hi Annabelle thankyou for your lovely words..you are a true pisces,and your kindness always comes shining through, I always look forward to receiving your thoughtful comments.
I am glad you have been restoring your creativity..we all need time out..and not just a few days, somtimes it can take months to wake up to a different way of working, to feel fresh again...butterflys arn't made in a day are they, but when they emerge don't they set your soul on fire!!!

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
