Everyday Gifts...

Everywhere, everyday, there are gifts.  Sometimes big, sometimes small...but they are always there.  Sometimes you receive a gift and sometimes you give a gift...and sometimes, giving IS the gift.

The gift of color ~


and yellows...

With the passing of time, the jewel-like leaves will wither and fall to the ground ~


only to reveal another gift ~

The structure and bones and life-giver to the leaves ~

Gifts of anticipation ~

Gifts of smell and taste.  Homemade goodness.  Cinnamon rolls my daughter made for my birthday ~

The gift of memories...of passing time ~

Small gifts ~

Spicy gifts ~

The gift of friendship ~

and common interests ~

The gift of creating ~

 The gift of giving ~

The gift of meeting new people ~

and making new friends ~

The gift of Art

There are gifts that warm the heart ~

and excite the eye ~

The gift of simple man-made light ~

and vibrant God given light ~

from Heaven above ~

The gift of Johnny Appleseed skies on a warm December eve ~

Gifts.  Big and small.  They are everywhere in our Everyday.

Well...I can hardly believe it.  I managed to finish a new piece in the midst of my Christmas decorating frenzy.  I'm almost impressed with myself!!

The new piece is entitled "Visiting" and will be listed in Gerushia's Etsy Shop tonight at 7:00 pm pacific time.  Normally, my 4" x 6" pieces come along with a story...and I did write a story for this piece, but I'm not going to include it.  I want everyone to have their own take on this one.  However, I will say that in my story, the girl on the bench is named :  Fanny Wenell Blanchard.  Look closely and you'll understand!!

I hope you like this new piece, as it has some elements that are meaningful to me.  I hope you enjoy looking and wondering and making up your own story.

Please note:  I must give a photo credit to Chantal Menard for the gorgeous image of the headstone.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by.
