Haiku my Heart - Christmas Eve

stained glass windows glow
candles light the way to hope
on this Christmas Eve

beautiful beaded art picked up at  yard sale some time ago. Sticker on back has her name and address but I have been unable to locate her, so I simply enjoy it. When the sun shines on these tiny glass beads,  it's beautifully delicate.

In keeping with a Christmas feeling, I'm putting my Spirit of the Christmas Tree spirit doll here today.

I had planned to put her  up a couple of weeks ago and offer as a giveaway, because she lifted herself off a hook and fell to the floor. I think that means she wants to go away. But now it's just too close to Christmas I guess. Anyway, she's pretty. And jingly.

I am dealing with a sick bird...my baby...so Christmas is sort of not on my plate right now. But I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day, and hope for good New Year Blessings. 

my love
