On the notion of journey

1. 2. 3 4.

we are all either on our journey or still on our doorstep-- but it all leads to the same place eventually: our home, wherever that may be, but I hope it is surrounded by close friends and eternal (yet always temporary) comforts.
lucky for me I am on a journey while finding a new home-- here! thank you truly to all who read my blog, I am grateful : )

On the notion of journey, let me share dear Bilbo's verse:

"The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say"
well said, Bilbo, well said.

also on this monday I anticipate gift giving (I always have, for some reason) and hopefully snow! and I hope that deer will return to my yard soon (they were recently replaced and displaced by houses...)
I will post about the bunting I made, Granola (soon to be made, more yummy vegan-ness, I assure you) and about the special blog award Ashley gave me !

I especially would like to post poetry of mine, but it hasn't been coming to me lately and this makes me unsettled...
this is old, perhaps it is nice to read?

it will get lost in the breeze

that strong song we sung

from the morning with dew covering the wide wild forests

to the dusk that wrapped us in calm and closeness

nothing will reach your ears

but know that we sang for you

and for all to hear.

sorry if this post is long, I also wanted to share (above) two photos that inspire me lately !

(3) if you like DIY and beautiful outfits, head to Elsie's blog!

(4) and visit Caitlin's blog, her outfits are so lovely and perfect for winter wardrobe inspiration.

Please share quotations from your favorite novels/books! I collect quotations like the sky collects stars!

thank you readers!
