...linen shadows...

"happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply,
to think freely,
to risk life,
to be needed."
- Storm Jameson
light + objects = shadows
join us in shadow land.
currently the temp gage
reads -3 degrees.
the wood stove is starting to
take the chill away
...to warm me
the coffee is rejuvenating me inside.
the horizon shows a
slight chance for
sun today...
but no promises.
just BE.

I have got to get me a wood stove...the woolies surround me, as always, here in Winter in the Nor'lunds.

I had to run up to the shop yesterday in my paint clothes to work for my daughter for a bit and just about froze, I didn't have my wool sweater on, just a long sleeve T, long johns and a sweatshirt, under my coat...won't do that today...the woolies are ready to roll!

Have a warm weekend by the fire and that extra pot is appreciated!!!

Hey Tilda!!!

The delicate linen leaves a delicate shadow. The textures of all the materials in the frame are elegant, the soothing tones easy on the eyes, Add a bit of sun, and we feel warm. Very nice!

Dearie Robin,
A never ending proses that hits me every Satuday. Thanks for those words and lines.

Yeah? Sunlight strikes Stockholm, Friday & today Saturday. Whilst, electricity break-down. Cool, huh?

TY too for reminding the coffee to make my soul hot.

Have a great week-end.
xoxo

I'm sitting here warm and toasty, as our woodburning stove is roaring awayin the corner! I like the textures of your fabrics as wellas the shadows.

I thought there's be SUN and SHADOWS today outside. But no. Only inside and on our SSS blog posts! Good enough for me! :)

Hey Harriet said...

Another perfect quote to go with a lovely photo (I need to be writing all of these quotes down!).

Hope the wood stove and the coffee did the trick and warmed you up.
