When I started this blog, I had in mind creating some collections of ephemera from the internet, imagery that catches my eye and strikes a chord for me. I've discovered, however, that there's a problem - if I haven't created the image myself, then I feel like I'm cheating if I post it. This has resulted in my posting (with the exception of the "salt" post) all my own imagery here. Today, however, I'm going to shrug off my compunctions and shamelessly gather some fairy dust from the ether. This morning, with the sky turning gold and turquoise with the winter sun, we are packing up our station wagon and heading for the hills...literally. My husband is enjoying a brief and rare vacation, and we are taking advantage of Thanksgiving week to hole up in our cozy nook in the mountains for a few days. It has, after all, been too long since we've seen some real snow! On Thanksgiving, we'll rush back down to the city for a long and languid supper with the family. Since I will be taking a forced "break" from posting imagery while we're playing in the deep snow, since we're sliding headlong into the Holiday season, and since I, for one, intend to indulge (in family, in food, in beautiful scenery and long, lazy mornings), I thought this wonderful "sugarlips" series via Viacomit was an appropriate selection with which to leave you. Go check out the rest of them...they're wonderful! And enjoy your non-material indulgences this season!
