Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Here in Chicago our New Years Eve snowstorm finally ended today - two days later. I took this photo about half way through. We now have over a foot of snow. Getting to and from work was a challenge today, but I do love the stillness that snow brings and the crunch of it underfoot.

This photo reminded me of my favorite pyrography box:

Sometime I'll have to do a "collections" post on my pyrography boxes.

I love the artistry and detail on this box. Wish I could step inside the scene...

The details are exquisite and the monochromatic colors are so peaceful.

My photos don't do it justice.

I think that is may be from Russia.

2013 had more than the usual share of challenges and sadness, but I have decided instead to remember the blessings.

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”
~Genesis 28:15-16

Blessings, Patti
