3 Little Pixies Find a Home for the Winter


There were two pixies last week and now we have a third, come to join us for this Winter's season.
They like to be warm at home with us when the days are so dark and cold.
Their friendly faces and warmth put a smile on our faces,
they are certainly welcome to stay with us this Winter and Lulu is delighted!


Winter laced my latest canvas piece as well, a little village frosted over one Winter's eve!



 Last week I posted this view from my window, the trees had their last leaves falling, as you can see they are now bare, but the sun is shining this week!


The forest has turned to its Winter browns



 and rising mists in the morning and at dusk, beautiful! The light in this one catches the last gold patch still to fall.

Ella Autumn



Here is Ella a finished canvas work. I have a collection of ladies and hadn't done one for a long time, so she greeted me with a gentle gaze blending in with the rich Autumn colours, I love so much!
I've also been busy stitching, something that is new for me, but I came upon a book of lovely creations made with felt and wanted to make some for the home and Lulu who I knew would love these.
So below are our Christmas pixies. They bring little chocolates to good children and disappear when children are naughty...



Out my window it has been rainy and the colours are definitely golden and full of Autumn's palette.

Journal Play




I've been enjoying art whenever I can fit it in and am working on two canvases as well as having felt stitching time which is new for me too, so lots of play time. But for now I'm just posting a little journal art, play time, relax and colour, where anything goes. So as the wind turns colder I play inside, as long as there are paints and colours, I'm all right!

Orange November



Bright Orange November skies how I love when November takes a dip into the twilight and the skies turn crimson in the evenings.

The following collage cards have been made with my favourite bright colours, a shot of pink and orange twirling in the Autumn skies as the sun dips and bids farewell.

November may be a dark month but it too has its treasures to share. Seek and enjoy November's gifts!







Below I share some photos of our holidays in England with Lulu's cousins.



We had lots of fun picking pumpkins and carving them too!


I loved the colours so bright, my favourite season for sure, these trees were golden!


We had fun on a Halloween Trail and met some scarecrow friends along the way!

Autumn Turning




This time of year is a fine walk between golden Autumn days and Winter playing softly just behind,waiting to step in.
These two happy dolls smile in the sunshine, the air still warm, they make the most before the leaves are all down and the days shorten, when Winter will slowly set in.





When the sky takes on an orange, pink glow in the evenings, there is wood smoke in the air and darkness all around the edges. A slower, deeper time, when nature shows her naked beauty.

Walk slowly over the bridge of seasons, as we walk away from the light to the dark, from the warmth to the cold. Gaze at the sky at dusk, relish all the new beauty that steps in as Winter approaches!






The sun was golden yesterday as we walked these peaceful villa grounds by the sea, we savoured the sights and warmth of a beautiful October's day!

Golden October





Days are drawing in now October is here, yet it is still full of gold and warmth trying to shine through when it can!
So here's to crunchy leaves,
leaves twirling,
colours changing.
This beautiful October's dance that takes our hand,
leading us slowly to the darker part of the year.
Listen to the breeze and gaze at the dipping sun as it turns the sky bright pink
and wonder at it all!

Stirrings of Autumn

September light is golden, mellow and so warm, I can feel the first stirrings of Autumn, a cooler breeze, the light waning, first leaves falling. 
A change in the air.
Outside Summery days still linger to be savoured before the cooler days arrive, before the rains and storms, as days draw in and nights lengthen.
Each leaf twirls gently, each with a story to tell.
Autumn light feels soft and gentle
whispers of the darker days, of something deeper, of golden, yellow light.
Crackling fires, pumpkin dishes and fluffy warm clothes.
We savour our days as the leaves softly twirl reminding us to make the most of the warmth that lingers on these Indian Summer days!






We all enjoyed a sunny Sunday walk. The September light is golden!


Lulu and I were fascinated with this beautiful flower we found in a park this week-end, what a beauty!
