It has long been my good intention to tell you about
and show you pictures of our *GyPsY CaMp*
and how it all began.
It was born of a dream and that
dream is living still and slowly moving forward!
But the telling of that will be another time.
I do get ahead of myself but at least these
are night time shots so not too much of a spoiler..
I love LiGhTs!
Actually, our entire family is drawn to their
way of bringing a bit of sPaRkLe and a feeling
of "let's celebrate" to the most
COMMON of days.
So, whenever we can,
we string 'em up and plug 'em in.
Even if it's only to roast marshmallows
or to sit and
enjoy some solitude from life's lovely,
but sometimes loud, daily clatter...
(which for me is MUCH needed at times)
or to have a little family, jam session.
We have lights up all year 'round.
Inside and out.
And these old lights were picked up at a
thrift store for a couple of dollars
per string. We bought several strands and my husband,
very patiently, switched out the bulbs until we
had a couple of good strings! He's so helpful
with so many things. We are
blessed to share so many "likes".
An inviting fire ready to enjoy..
And then there are the dazzling beauties hanging
in the trees and shining forth their brilliance
that I might find my way!
I do love my times by the fireside and
we've always been blessed to live in a place
where we could have a fire ring.
One of life's simple pleasures.
coloring the Juniper tree with shades of green and blue
and red and yellow..
Enjoying the crackling and dancing
of the flames in a few moments of peaceful resting.
And I'm so grateful.
Isn't it good to dis-engage sometimes?
from phones..computers, radios and the tv?
And, yes, even from people..
To let your senses just rest and to hear your heart.
Some of my most profound thoughts and
revelations have come to me during these times of
refection and total quiet.
Just a thought, Dear ones..
A good fire slowly dying..
It's time to gather my thoughts and
bid goodnight to this magical place.
I hope that you enjoyed your visit to our
GyPsY CaMp and that you have a magical place of
your own where you rest, sing, dream and gather
with all sorts of loved ones..
If you do, I'd love to hear about it!
Thank you so much for stopping in.
May your week be blessed beyond measure.
