a new nest

For a dog - Miss Winnie Dixon painted for us with love by Ande

from Ande or Miss Chickory my friend from the mysterious lands of Georgia.

3 of 15 things

My 15 things package was absolutely bursting with love and thoughtfulness - which was not at all a surprise to me but somehow tres hard for me to receive, hard to take in. Of late there is so much goodness all around me - covering me like a thick, down filled, flannel duvet and making me feel nothing but love and comfort and gratitude - it still stuns me a little - so, so good, this new nest of goodness.

Soft - an amazing collection of feathers gathered by herself to send to her new friend in far away Nova Scotia and Green a beautiful and perfectly crafted, green patterned garland to decorate our beautiful living room.

Merci Miss Ande

bitter, bitter cold and windchill this morning. A clear pale blue sky and off I go wrapped tightly in down and fleece avec the marching sisters.


  1. So very lovely and lovingly gifted. Your happiness is a wonderful thing Susan, it gives me much hope. Stay safe and warm, and I hope you and cowboy and the rest of the family have a wonderful holiday season. Much love and big hugs, J.

  2. Ande is one of the most talented people I have had the pleasure to meet in Blog World. That pic of Miss D is so charming! And the garland is gorgeous. :) Happy happy! xo Pam

  3. WHOOOHOOOOO. How cute is that picture of Miss Winnie??? And the chicken feathers? Like holding one of her own sweet chicks.
