Stars & Wishes






Over at Diaries, December is a time of Stars and Wishes.
So of course, in just the last couple of days, I've gotten an email with 
"starcatchers" in the title and heard an advertisement on the radio for a play
And it's only December 3rd!

Visually, everything is coming up stars and wishes too!




Can't wait to see where the rest of the month takes me!

I did a bit of star drawing and pondering and planning.
Star stitching will come soon enough :)


What have you been up to?

On Dec. 1st, no matter where we live, up go a few little decorations to begin the quiet waiting for Winter Solstice. The first to go up are: a wide dark green velvet ribbon that has affixed to it, 5 antique German postcards depicting the season. My favorite is the center postcard showing a child standing in front of a Christmas tree with the glow of lights from candles all around. Next comes the front of a card that we received years ago that takes my husband back to his Minnesota childhood. Shows a young boy standing in front of a snowy landscape, his tongue stuck to a metal flag pole! Can you guess why we love this card...Outside our front door, on a metal stand, a little wooden folk art snowman, holding a twig with some greenery topped with a star. Since we now live in New Mexico, I made a small grapevine wreath from clippings from our backyard grapes and attached three red chiles that we grew...slowly, the quiet joys of the season, along with these and other little decorations, fill the days with love, tradition and honoring the place we call home.

Stargazing when weather is fine. Star starved when it is not.
