Washed Winter

all that gathers on Winter’s shore






 the sea washes in
















Shells of Pearls from the depths of the Pacific

“The oceans never stop.  They know no beginning or end.”
L.M. Stedman 


All that washes in and gathers by the sea fills our cottage  for Christmastide. A weathered white tree with tattered garland like strands of seaweed,  is just enough.   Old worn lanterns with candles for light  as day fades into dark.  The deep always calling, the waves continually washing and we let it be, we let it be so. 

Washed Winter

  2. I love it. Such a peaceful tree and home and wonderful to see someone who doesn't go run out and by the "trending" seasons ornaments or home decor. Inspired by your lovely pictures and original holiday decor that is SO refreshing. Lovely.

  6. I had to come and re visit this post today While we have different styles, I am definitely soothed by your decor, and beautiful pictures and especially by your sweet tree that speaks to me. I shared this post on my blog today, because it is my favorite Christmas tree and post in all of blog land for 2017. I hope that is okay and I directed readers back to your blog. Merry Christmas.
