At the Stroke of Midnight the Dolls would Dance

sepia photographs
When I was little my Uncle David would visit or babysit and he would tell us bedtime stories or play tricks. He had me convinced that my dolls on the shelf above my bed played and danced while I slept. I would try to pretend I was asleep and suddenly open my eyes hoping to catch them in the act. Alas the sandman would creep up and sleep would always overtake me. In the  morning I would jump up to see if the dolls had moved. 

They would always somehow be in different positions on the shelf when my Uncle was staying hah!  The other times they didn't seem to have moved although I stared very very hard at the minutest details hoping to prove that they indeed had been up past the midnight hour playing and dancing.

Santa Fe National Forest and In the Studio

fall in New Mexico
10,000 feet and we came around the bend of the road and was greeted with this golden vista that took our breath away. We just stood and stared at the sun kissed aspens for 30 minutes in absolute silence.
Santa Fe - Home
Not a sound except the rustle of leaves.
Pure Magic.


I am guessing the colours of New Mexico are influencing my art for it seems I'm attracted to  yellow,orange and blue felt.

Baking Bread One Way or Another

This is one way

in a Horno
I was going to write about my trip to  New Mexico and baking bread at the Pueblo but this website really did a grand job so I hope you enjoy visiting and exploring their site.

Pueblo Oven Bread Recipe

Looking at how a horno is built I think we will be sticking to an indoor oven. Luckily, or not so luckily if one is on a diet, my husband has taken up bread making as a hobby. One bread on his baking agenda was a fave of his as a child, simit. If anyone wants to try just so you know grape molasses is available
at many import stores or on amazon.

Raindrops on an Autumn Day
