Walking through a Winter Wonderland...
My goodness - snow, snow and more snow! I was on the road for a few days and ended up driving through some areas of Indiana that had amazing amounts of snow accumulation!
The roads were clear and dry on my drive to and from Northern Kentucky. If I could I would personally thank each and every one of the road crew members in both states. They did an outstanding job of managing the snow/ice on the roads.
I am now back in the comforts of home and just starting to bead again. In the meantime, I ran across this cute little ornament I made last year. It is a porcelain cab from Eljay and the first one like that I beaded around. The edge stitch is one I found in Beading With Cabochons by Jamie Cloud Eakin, it is backed with red ultra suede.
Would you like it to be yours? If so, please leave a comment by midnight Eastern time on Friday (December 21). I will draw a winner on Saturday, and post it sometime that night or on Sunday.
Sending you wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a stress free holiday season!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
