"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.
