Dear TheaI just love the wintry moon photo - so atmospheric and evocative. It could definitely be a book cover (something mysterious, perhaps?) Chocolate, cup of tea, fire and a good book...my idea of heaven on a cold winter's day!Have a lovely weekendBest wishesEllie
Oooh yes now we are talking, something yummy! with our teaThank you for your kind wordsThea xx
Mmmm, those scones look delicious Thea! Love your crochet blanket, such pretty soft colours....stay warm.Caroline xx
Thank you Caroline, I made the blanket for my eldest Granddaughter, she loves all those girly coloursThea xx
You made me smile Thea as I am reading Glennie Kindreds 'Letting in the Wild Edges' which is a very inspiring book. Tea and scones and a comfy chair all make January bearable. Karen xx
Do you know Karen I am not surprised we seem very alike (hope you know what I mean) It is such a lovely book and very me...I have your book on my list too...we just need some warmth now..Thea xx
Lovely post. I spend my winter days very similar to you. Crocheting, knitting, cups of tea, reading, braving the cold and wet to take the dog for a walk.... Xx
There are some days when that's all you should do, we all need some "Me" time ( shame the doggie cannot take himself...he he!)Happy WeekendThea xx
~ Such a beautiful post ...The moon peeping through is such a magical picture..I'm very interested in your 'read' as well, sounds just my cup of tea...Keep cosy,my friend...We have days of raining cats and dogs...Thinking of investing in a new pack a mac and wellie boots, every day seems the same..Where oh where is jack Frost!!! Happy weekend...Love Maria x
I think you will find it inspiring Maria lots of old meanings and how we can still celebrate the seasons...topped up with beautiful pen illustrationsSpeak SoonThea x
Hello Thea,I'm back in blog land!First I'm going to read all your blogs that I have missed!It's really winter out here, lots of fresh fallen snow!I wish you a very nice weekend!Kisses, Juliëtte
Hello JulietteHow are you, I shall pop by soonThea xx
Well I think I may have to settle down in your cosy chair and have some of your warm scones and a cup of tea! I'm looking after my brother's dog so I'm spending lots of time on cold, wet, muddy walks but it's been lovely as I've seen things I would normally miss. This afternoon as I was trying to keep upright in the mud I saw two beautiful clumps of snowdrops in flower (but forgot my camera).
Oh Jacqui I love snowdrops, we used to have swathes of them in our Cornish garden, I have tried ti grow them here but no sight of them yet!Thea xx
Now that is an inviting winter post, full of my favourite things, crochet, a winter moon, scones, tea, and even the Kindred book - I first read her writings about twenty years ago! Changed my way of seeing the world forever. Chrissie x
Hello ChrissieYes I know what you mean, I have always led my life through nature, but her books are very inspirational Thea xx
Such a warm post Thea.An ideal way to spend days. Catching up on things we like, while the wind howls outside and the rain thuds down.I pretty much do the same. We have had heavy winds and cold days. My wood burner is on 24/7 and I do enjoy the warmth of the indoors. Happy Sunday Thea.. Those scones look delicious.val xx
Think Ill come and spend a day with you Thea it sounds really relaxing.Love Jill xx
Well Thea at the moment we are decorating but I'm getting ready for a winter walk, my need to down tools, well paintbrushes soon, and get out! Have a great day :) x
A really love post Thea and it sounds like I would happily join you if I may?! For me at the moment they are filled with a little breathing, relaxation, a little painting, building a picture wall, reading, crochet and looking after two small children and two small critters. Perfect! xoxo
I love to read during these dark winter nights, and I am also doing some painting and printing when I can. I like to keep busy while waiting for spring. Your photos are lovely as always.
You are certainly making the best of winter Thea, it all looks perfect to me!If I'm home and have some free time, when its horrible outside I like to settle in the sitting room with the woodburner roaring away, a cup of tea, a slice of homemade cake, a good book, some crochet or sewing of the moment, and a few magazines to hand too!Bliss! And thanks for reminding us of some good things to enjoy in winter!
Thank for your lovely messages they make my day,Thea x
