Waldorf - Spiral Bound - Memory Book

Love and light  Marie

Versatile Blogger Award

The Lovely Rochelle has given me this award
She is kind, it is all about adaptability 
One needs to adapt to life's changing streams
Why I say streams is, because constantly flowing towards us is a stream of the future
We wake up in the morning  and things happen,
Sometimes they are not things that we thought would happen that day
So we must adapt to changes and go with the flow
Lets not fight it, but surrender to it
Lets enjoy the changes that come
Lets enjoy our life, busy as it is

Love and light  Marie

Fifty  years ago when I was seven I watched my Mother mix up ingredients in this bowl
I would stand in the kitchen and watch her bake
And here am I, mixing up ingredients in the same bowl
My  dear Mother will be 90 next month, and I always get a lovely feeling when using her bowl
Memories sure are precious

Love and light  Marie.

Having a chat

There is nothing like having a chat with your friends
They understand where you are coming from, and where you are going.

Bringing Balance with the Colors of the Seasons.





It is wonderful to create, with the colors of the seasons
it brings so much balance to my life
For I feel that the colors you view through your eye that you see in Nature
Relate to the feelings you have in your soul 
The fresh, Spring Greens and Yellows
The Stronger, Summer Reds and  Greens
The waning, Autumn Oranges and Browns
 The Coolness, Winter Blues and Whites
I strive to be conscious of this in all  my creations

Love and light  Marie

The love of a Mother

This picture has always been a favorite of mine
It has an olde world feel to it, that I like
I often feel that I should have been born in an older time
I would have fitted right in.

Harvesting the Maize

Today we harvested the Maize 
We grow it for our hens
The day was windy and cool, real Autumn weather
The hens just love maize.

They free range and have a large area to roam around in
The rooster wakes us up at dawn every morning

Love and light  Marie

Soft Earth Seed Babies

These little seeds I spotted in my garden
They are soon going to fall deep into the bosom of Mother Earth
She will care for them, until the warm rays of Spring Sun touch the Earth again

 My eyes are filled with tears as I write this
I am crying for all the sadness in the world
For all the deaths that need not have happened
For all the torture that is occurring this very minute
May all those who have passed send their light to us still living
That we may send thoughts of peace to those who wish others harm 
So that things can change and lives need not be lost in vain.

Love and light  Marie

Five minutes ago, I finished this King Winter custom order for a New Zealand client
She lives in the deep cold South Island in Otago
