Found carving by unknown artist.
Time to switch it up in our little house. Time to take down this painting and put this beautiful carving, found for a song many moons ago in an antique mall, away so as to make room for a fresh-cut tree. Time to get up in the attic and bring down the holiday boxes in order to begin the process of metamorphosis. Time to clear off the dining room table of fabrics -- laid out in anticipation of productivity -- and the myriad stacks of prints that clutter other assorted surfaces. Time to switch out the current mix of CDs for holiday favorites and to keep apple cider and cinnamon on low on the back stove burner to fragrance the house. And yes, I might be just a little behind . . . :)
Hope the season is treating you well.
