we slipped away for a couple of days
to read by an open fire
and walk along a river and some cobbles

it was colder there, wintery
through the fog we saw a mountain on sunset fire
and a rainbow from beginning to end.

a beautiful christmas eve to you,
and day.



mama bell, papa bell and baby bell
each with a different ring


the garland in real clay,
now the discs make a gentle sound when they touch each other

my first ceramic class
no chance to go over and perfect,
which was good for me.



thank you all so much for the warm wishes!

now the elf is busy
making christmas cards .  .    .
