The Earth and Her Child


All year long I waited,
Month by month I counted.
Hoping and wishing praying to God,
To bring a better year to everyone.
Coming up with names that would fit you,
Asking my self what to name you.
Hope? Love? Faith? Or Joy?
You are many but you are one,
There is no one name I can give you.


All I know deep in my heart,
You are different and very special.
Bringing good news to everyone,
Sitting inside me like an unborn child,
Kicking, turning, waiting and hoping;
Counting the days sleeping and waiting,
Growing better, growing bigger,
the big day is coming it is getting closer.



Sweet New Year I cannot wait,  
Yes I admit I am impatient.
To see your face, to see your eyes,
To say welcome my new child,
To hold you and caress you with my warm hands;
To kneel on my knees and thank my God.




The world is waiting,
The world is hoping;
The world named you 2013.
Some want love, some want hope,
Some want God, some want change,
But you are everything to everyone.
Go on my child, go on and be born,
Bring good news to everyone.

I wish you all a very sweet and warm New Year, and May 
God pour his love and blessings on you.

Vintage Christmas postcards


Yes, Christmas is getting closer. Yes,things are moving fast. Where did the time go?...  
Today I thought I’d share a pretty Christmas graphic from a vintage Christmas postcards.
What a lovely Christmas greeting card or gift tag this would make.
 Do you know that sending Christmas cards started in 
Britain in 1840?










Do you notice most of the card framing with the holly leaves and berries?

Thank you SO much for stopping by!
Wishing you all the best for your Christmas preparations..

Madonna with the Long Neck


File:Parmigianino 003b.jpg
From Wikipedia 
Madonna with the Long Neck was painted in 1534 for the church of Santa Maria dei Servi at Parma.
 It is the masterpiece of Parmigianino, also known as Francesco Mazzola.

Parmagianino uses a mannerist style in his painting by elongating Mary’s neck in reference to a popular hymn (Song of Solomon 7:4.) in which Mary’s neck is compared to a great ivory tower. 

So I was inspired….and I did this painting... 






Thank you SO much for stopping by!
Wishing you all the best for your Christmas preparations..

Decorating with vintage bottles: Part II



…You can find beauty in most bottles, like people. 
I’ve loved vintage bottles for as long as I can recall…
…for some reason I have always been drawn to them…. like people…

 There are serious bottle collectors who will pay lots of money for certain bottles.
... For some of us it is the appeal of the hunt.
Any way here are more vintage bottles used in creative ways.
