Bringing Nature In...

Hello and welcome!
 It's great to have you stop by on this wintry morning.


January.. what a peaceful month.. I think of it as the calm after the storm.




A small slice of time to really relax and enjoy my favorite magazines while all bundled up in a cozy throw, sipping on a hot cup of steamy, rich delicious cocoa, with extra marshmallows of course.

 Queen Tessa would tell you that she'd rather be playing in the snow.. silly old girl ;)




 Blankets of snow are seen everywhere. I cant help but be mesmerized at the beauty that surrounds us..
 Though it's shivering cold outside, I feel so cozy and warm inside.


One of my favorite winter birds is the Chickadee. A sweet little bird with striking colors that stand out against  a winters landscape.


Which inspired me to create this little fella.
I have my Christmas decor tucked away, but my winter decor still lingers throughout our home.
The twig wreath was just a little bare and needed a winter friend to nest there.
So putting the magazine down, I wandered to the studio to gather a few supplies and within a couple of hours my chickadee plate was sculpted. It was easy, peasy.. the hardest part was waiting for it to dry, that took a full day. Then I painted the Chickadee plate and nestled him into the wreath. He is perfect in my cozy little home.

Wishing you all a wonderfully relaxing month.. stay warm and pamper yourself ;)
