"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes things visible in the first place."

Paul Klee, 1879-1940

Advent: December 15

 Another of my mom's bears, and you can see just the top of one of her tiny x-stitched stocking ornaments hanging on the breakfront.  I use so many of her Christmas decorations, though I have not ever really plumbed the depths of her bins stowed in the garage after I brought them home.  My sister reminded me of one piece we always loved that I had completely forgotten about, so this week I will see if it is out there; it should be, where else would it be.  It's such a bittersweet season for me. Mom always enjoyed it so much, and everything about it reminds me of her. I miss her incredibly; I will never not.

I swear, you've got the cutest stuff!

No, you'll never stop missing your mom. I was thinking about my mother last night, missing the times we didn't have. She's been gone nearly 30 years. They live on in our hearts.

I miss my mother every day. I never would have thought that there would be so few days that she didn't enter my thoughts. Of course, the idea of her being gone was a concept I could never get my mind around. I love the way you use her treasures!
