~Merry November~

"Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again."
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

Tis November..one of the merriest months of the year.  Oh how I love it!  Now mind you, I realize Winter is not officially here just yet, in fact...officially, Winter does not arrive until December 21st..but for me....IT ARRIVES TODAY...NOVEMBER 1st..the first day of the merry season.  We wrap ourselves in sweaters, merriment & wonder, we don our cozy slippers and our good cheer & we wear our scarves with rosy cheeks & twinkling eyes.

As you can see..I've begun my decorating.  My blog is now wearing it's holiday attire (from the lovely Amy of Amybugs Attic) and my website will soon be wearing the same festive outfit. :)
Here at home & in the studio..the merriment has been taking place for a couple of weeks now. I've merry bears is gorgeous neutral shades ready to don their festive attire and snowfolk, of the punch needle variety, coming to life so delightfully.  All from the comfort of my olde overstuffed chair, placed close to the wood stove and the big front window, so as to watch the snowflakes fall :)

Merry days indeed.  :)Doreen
