~ gifts of the season. . . . .

*   ~*    h e l l o o o o o o u ~ *     *         *

~*   *     *
so... .   .

as we all scribble in the last few entries into
 this year's notebook of our life~

the family photos have been taken

 and our quiet inner visions are pasted on the back cover  and kissed goodnight for another year.. .   .

after the gifts have been exchanged, now  come the gifts that i give myself this year. the gifts only i can give ~
the gifts only i know that i want.. .  and truly need.
so my holiday tree was furnished this year  with my love of old pink ornaments~

some cool vintage silverware

and topped with my favorite, comfortable, folding

'  t a b l e    &   c h a i r s  '

(( .  . even got to go for a car ride for a brief gallery appearance~*  ))

it really seemed to have adorned itself using whatever was within reach. the flavor... .  . or   ' taste '  this year  being a symbol of gathering of eating of sharing.

then as the epiphanies have come  been hopefully noted for future use  and gone…

~yes... . 'tis the season *

the window is in.. . .& here we go ~*

~next in the Oven... . .

So... .   .

moving on from our time of  ' Giving Thanks '... .

to the chance for just plain  ' Giving '

* * *

all the pies were made blending tradition & inspiration... .   .

& the last bites slowly eaten.

so... .   .

next on the menu and then in the oven
is clay based ~

main ingredient:
*    p o r c e l a i n    *

a focus change to the visually edible. right up there with the preliminary senses of sound and smell. before it passes our lips.
these vessels that contain our so carefully chosen foods.

(  i think this would be a beautiful tart... . i'm working on that ~ )

i guess these are a kind of ' twice baked ' food ~
to then be adorned with a colorful glaze of powdered glass and water. then back in the oven for a relatively quick finish... .   .
at @  2000 degrees ~

~ wish them luck !
