In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?



Glimpses from November

 Our days have been very full here, and promise to increase rather than decrease in the direction.  Many things fill the hours of my day, and I haven't been posting as much as I would wish.  I do enjoy it when I have time to upload pictures and write a few words, so I will be making a point to do it more often.  Meanwhile, on this first day of December I am sharing here a few snapshots of our busy November.  The first Sunday of Advent has come and gone, and this is the time for joyful anticipation among our many duties.  Have a blessed Advent, friends, and I hope to post pictures soon of decorating and card-making!

 Mama was taking pictures of me while I made window-stars.
 It was a cold day, and I was wearing sweaters and an extra-long skirt

 ...and this is what I was making!

I LOVE the color of your bedroom walls.
Your pictures made me smile and miss you all terribly. I do hope that we can visit you next year!

Kat said...

O such lovely pictures...thank you for sharing them sis!

Olivia said...

Thank you both! I miss you too, Lyndsay, and look forward to seeing you again. Yes, I love the color of my room--I ended up painting it the same color as my old room. It's the best.
