Just a little bit of magic and a whole lot of hope........





























Christmas is here!

I hope you find some solace in retreating a little from reality. Adventure stories and films, riding a one horse open sleigh across the snow, seeking out the magic in frosty dew drops.

I will escape into it as much as I can! (Already it is bringing out my Mother Hen side even more than usual!)

I wish you all a joyful Christmas, just a little bit of magic and a whole lot of hope for 2013. Thank you for all your support throughout the year and a special thanks to those patient customers who dived in and bought work from me this year! I hope you continue to enjoy Foxglove Lane, and celebrate the ordinary and the everyday with me again in 2013......

  9. Such a beautiful post, as always! I will be "seeking out the magic in frosty dew drops" as you say, allowing the stillness of nature to soothe my soul & remind me of what's important. That's the main reason I love to visit Foxglove Lane--you have such a way of restoring peace & beauty to ordinary days & making me remember that it's all extraordinary. Have a very magical new year!
