The Beauty of Winter

“ Winter is a time for comfort…for good food and warmth. For touch of a friendly hand and for talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. — Edith Sitwell photo by otchipotchi   Winter to-do List (as inspired by fieldandsea) Winter to-do list: staying close to home, bundling up in tights, eating warm and spicy pasta, collecting artwork, cuddling up on the couch.

Hello Lovelies! Spring Colours Week 2010: Purple Day. Beautymist (c) 2010. Back in 2010, I participated in the Flickr group called " Spring Colours Week".

Spring Colour Week : Purple Day

Hello Lovelies ! Here is my contribution to the Spring Purple Day: The calendar comes from "Modern Printed Matter", a small, exquisite Etsy shop owned by Anna Cote. The ink (for ink pads)  is much more purple in person, and the coasters are Japanese. Have a nice purple day! Enjoy!-Beautymist.

Sunday Deeds & Toughts

Hello Lovelies! Spring comes in all kinds of blue hues... photo by Beautymist. So far, i’ve been to the countryside for a day and a half. Had a long walk in the woods. Stopped by the cemetery and an old ruined chapel (see my photo above) where I prayed for my GrandPa (he passed away a year ago). I meditated. Then on my way home I gathered pinecones to lit a fire. I made a fire from scratch in the fireplace. Did some yummy meals, talked to friends, learned to crochet, relaxed with tea and decor ... [Lire la suite]

At least, winterizing it a bit? Making gifts yourself, just like Holly Becker advises (wisely) to do? Do you buy handmade? Local? Organic? Green in any way? With care and love and thoughts for the recipient, like sfgirlbybay advises? In this spirit, here is a lovely piece of advice I found via the ever lovely ABT blog: Here's what i've done so far....
