And Tho' It Be Dark, We Are Snug

These December evenings, so inky black and all encompassing, always remind me of this Brambly Hedge illustration by Jill Barklem. She is one of our favorite authors/illustrators of children's books. Walking by old trees and big stumps, we often comment, "look, there's a 'Brambly Hedge sort of tree/stump!'.

May winter's snowflakes surround you with peace and may your Christmas preparations be merry!

We love Brambly Hedge here too! We don't have snow yet, but flurries are happening:-)

Thanks Daphne. Now, if only they were stirring up some of that mushroom soup you highlighted on your blog...yum! I must make some! Keep the gourmet recipe ideas coming! ~Amy

Rose, a blessed Christmas to you and yours as well! Thank you so much. ~Amy

Suzanne, there is just something so perfect about Brambly Hedge. The messy coziness of mice enjoying the seasons.... I hope the snow makes its way to you soon! ~Amy
