and, needing to make something simple for Thanksgiving treats,
Following star/snowflake making on paper
she traveled to a far-off land of ice and real snow and mirror glass water
and golden lights
where she tasted the aromatic madeleine cakes
and a delicious Thanksgiving feast
in good company.
Hooray for cozy homes and glowing lights
and holidays spent in good company!
I hope your day was lovely too!

I had just placed The Moon there, in the basket of art dolls and puppets awaiting my attention.
Then noticed how cozy she looked snuggling up to her friend the ballerina,
as if she has known her for years.
I hope you have a wonderful spot of your own tonight, for pondering thoughts and dreams.

As you have seen, the winter/holiday season stirs up magical fantasies here in the studio, of dancing ballerinas.
Today is a day off from most studio work, as we are beginning our decorating for Christmas! Tim is the very best Christmas decorator ever, and with our combined fondnesses for miniature worlds (think wee winter villages, etc.) and cozy atmospheres, it should be quite magical~~So much fun!! I'll post some pictures through the holiday time : )
Okay~The day's getting started here! I hope you have a good one there!
