Everyone is right.....Your ramblings are so wonderful to read, it makes one stop and reflect on the moment. I love reading your posts. Your wreath is beautiful and refects a moment of peace. The moon was extraordinary last night, so big and beautiful. Not realizing it was winter solstice, I commented on it looking like winter solstice. You are a true writer. God bless, and Happy Christmas and I wish you a beautiful New Year. “North Carolina “

You have created a wonderful family tradition and very special memories. And I love your shaggy wreathe. Your family is very lucky.

Love your ramblings and your wreath is beautiful. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year !

Blessings of winter and the returning light!

I just love that it is now getting gradually lighter! Love your creations whatever you do!

I love your'shaggy' Solstice wreath. Here in Perth (Australia) the temp was 41.5 C - the sort of day when you could fry an egg on the pavement, (although who would want to I can't imagine!) and the greenery was wilting.I am crocheting with the air conditioner blasting straight at me.
I hope you have a very happy Christmas and that the coming year is filled the lovely creative things.

Here in Japan, Winter Solstice is celebrated by putting Yuzu in the bath and by eating pumpkin. Both are a bright yellowy orange colour and look bright and uplifting. Even though the coldest weather is yet to come, somehow I always feel relieved after the Winter Solstice. Days are getting longer and Spring is not that far away.

Ohhh.. what a pretty and I'm sure wonderful smelling wreath for your table! Bravo for making it yourself! I received my Sweet Pea yarn package yesterday! What a big wonderful squishy bag of pretty colors! I hugged it like a small child. lol.

It's so inspiring to read how you weave simple, wholesome traditional activities into your family life. I wish I'd been able to read along with your blog when my children were that age! I saw your wreath on Instagram, and was instantly inspired to make my own (we have eucalyptus trees in our garden!) It's Summer here, in Australia, and for the past 10 years we have celebrated each Solstice evening with sharing long chats, sitting companionably around an outdoor fire, sipping red wine and toasting marshmallows. It's a heartwarming family tradition. Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family!


Merry Christmas Lucy and a very happy, healthy, inspiring new year. Thank you for all your fabulous postings full of creative thought provoking positivity! Enjoy, rest, take care and really looking forward to your CAL love Becki xxx

Down here in NZ it was the Summer solstice last night. As my daughter said, noooooooooooooooooooo..........Love your wreath. Merry Christmas.


It's beautiful. Merry Christmas.

Sarah Jones

I watched it get dark last night then woke up this morning when it was still pitch dark staying in bed until it became light. A quiet time to pause.


My mind boggles at the thought of green things growing outside in December.

Janet Ward
