And now let us welcome the New Year full of things that have never been~Rainer Maria Rilke
January, the month of new beginnings and cherished memories, beckons. Come, let winter weave her wondrous spell: cold, crisp, woolen-muffler days, long dark evenings of savory suppers, lively conversations, or solitary joys. Outside the temperature drops as the snow falls softly. All of nature is at peace. We should be, too. Draw hearthside. This is the month to dream, to look forward to the year ahead and the journey within ~Simple Abundance
During winter, each night I light this candle and read, ponder and pray before I fall fast asleep! This is a wonderful candle with the scent of Lemon Cake & it CRACKLES like a fireplace, which soothes my soul. The smell and sound is heavenly. I just bought another scent, Vanilla Caramel. Hubby and I found them while looking for camping gear at Bass Pro! Who knew!
It's a good thing!
I just had to have you look at this cutie~pie vintage suitcase that is behind the candle pictures! I bought it from one of my Sisters on the Fly sisters, Carol from Idaho. Her suitcases are in high demand among the sisters! On the sides she put my sister #595. I bought these new books & magazine to start my cozy winter days off with! Sweet Mary from
Isabella's Closet-Mary suggested the 2 books, so I just had to buy them! GREAT choices Mary! I LoVe them! I have a sweet craft room but a girl can always use more ideas!
Go check out Mary's blog! She has the best craft-office ever! Beautiful book filled with wonderful ideas! Oh, honey, where is the paint and glue?! Fellow blogger Cathy from Treasured Heirlooms-Cathy is on the cover of the December 2008 issue of Romantic Homes! Oh, what a treat she is and a very sweet lady! Her blog is a delight to!
I love this issue! Amazon has past issues on SALE! Enjoy your winter and the blessings it beholds!
