Life has a way of telling me to slow down and take a rest every now and then. I am currently in quarantine drugged and looking rather “interesting” I have shingles on my face which makes me think of 17th century pox marked wenches. Thank God I have access to 21st century medication and this condition is only temporary.
Here is my very own Horn Of Cornucopia which I knitted and then wove. The tie is just “cast on 6 stitches and then garter stitch until desired length” Tie in a knot or bow.
This was the gate before
The gate opens on to my own small slice of now private Melbournian Heaven. Orange flowers bloom next to a paper mache giraffe in the left hand corner. I was reading Winter Owls and noticed a bit of an “Orange Theme”going on. I also decided to buy myself a nice present to make myself feel better and I have been badly coveting this work since I saw it. So I ordered it. Hoorah!
We are having a full on heatwave here in Melbourne and this means my amazing, night blooming Moonflower has snuck in other bloom.
Sponge Bob has his thongs and Sunnies on cos it is HOT!
Continuing on the gratitude theme is this totally wonderful antique North American paper box depicting two squirrels and decorated with Horn of Cornucopia items. This box would have been used for the American Thanksgiving festival and many people use the horn which is also referred to as abundance and plenty, as a symbol for this time.
Well its over 100 degrees and will be all week, I am crook but I have many, many things to be grateful for. Mainly I am grateful for good friends, faithful critters and family. What are you grateful for ? Come on, leave me a comment with one thing you are grateful for today. 🙂
