Enchanting Early Autumn

There is something rather special about Early Autumn

The leaves are just starting to fall 
Even in the Enchanted Forest, Mother's still hold their babies tightly in their arms
These two Acorn Families are a custom order for a New Zealand Client
I think they are rather neat,
It always amazes me, that even though they do not have eyes,  love still shines out.

Love and light  Marie

The Gnomes had protected the little seeds deep within Mother Earth all Winter long
When the first warming rays of Spring Sunshine appeared,
they pushed the seeds up
The Spring fairy guided the little seeds,
enfolding them in her green gown and warming yellow arms
Watching them while they grew
How busy the fairies are in Springtime

I made these Spring fairies for all my Northern Hemispere friends,

Where there is darkness,light

I made this picture years ago, and it sits above my bed
I do love the words "Where there is darkness, light
Where there is despair, hope.
A lot of people in blog land,  have darkness and despair in their lives
I hope that they might look upon this lovely picture and gain light and hope.

Love, light and hope,  Marie

Wild Peaches

Someone approximately 30 years was maybe having a picnic on the banks of this local river, which is near my home. They threw away the peach stone,and it started to grow. I have been busy  preserving peaches from this tree.
Being wild they are delicious, maybe it is an old strain, it is untouched by sprays, and hard to spot from the road. I left enough for other people who might enjoy them as well.

Sailing Away into the Sunset

Tomorrow I will have been married for 33 years, and marriage is a bit like this boy
You head out into unknown waters, sometimes the seas are stormy , but mostly they are calm
He is wrapped up warmly against the wind, and his boat is strong
His sail is billowing in the wind, which is forever pushing him forward 
It is good to go forward in life, it is good to seek new adventures
I am enjoying sailing on the open seas with my husband.

Cooler weather

Yesterday I had my lounge potbelly fire on  for the first time
The temperature had dropped and the scent of Autumn's beginning was in the air
I decided to make these Lantern maidens
I do so enjoy creating with wool

Guardians of my home

This the first thing you will see, if you are knocking on my front door.

I have two entrances to my home, one is through a small side gate , that leads to the front door
And the other is a larger gate, that cars can drive through
At my small gate I planted a Bay tree, and the larger one a Rowan tree
In ancient mythology and folklore, these trees protect and guard your home from harm
I can say that since I planted them 25 years ago, our home has been protected.
I feel this also works on people walking pass them to enter my home.

Love and light  Marie
