A birthday...

My little shining light, who brought joy back into the world for me when my heart needed mending all those years ago, turned nine yesterday.  My little Autumn faery.



I feel a little as if I have lost something precious.  Perhaps I need to tie up a loaf of bread in a spotted hanker-chief, sling it on the end of a stick over my shoulder, and set out on a quest to find it.  I would also need a warm woollen cloak with a hood, and a song to sing.  You can't go on a quest without a song to sing as you tramp the by-ways.  And the cloak of course, to curl up in at night under the stars.

This is my 100th blog post.  Thank you to all who have wandered by, and stayed to hear my stories and see the things I've made, and left behind such wise words of support and encouragement.  It has been wonderful.  There will be more to come.

Another wonderful creation - both the outfit AND the child! Thanks for being a presence on the web and one hundred posts!

I love this blogging world, though still relatively new to it (March of this year!). I love that I meet so many kindred spirits from all over the world, and yet sometimes I think it would be grand if we could actually MEET in the physical! On my artist's budget, though, well, challenging. But if you grab your loaf of bread and cape and find a song, I hope to find you sleeping under a hemlock in my forest, listening to the stories of owls and bears and dragonflies. Do pop in for tea by the fire.

What a beautiful little fairy she makes. Children are amazing. When you think you are mourning the loss of the baby age. They jump up and show you the everything beautiful of the here and now.

I always feel bittersweet around my children's birthdays. Memories and times to come all bound up together in hands that want to hold and be able to let go. Bittersweet.
