Both these photographs were taken at the end of the afternoon which is heartening when you think a month ago it would already have been dark.
Sunshine came through the letterbox today too in the form of this:
.... all the way from Freeport, Illinois!
The contents are sunshine that you can wear every day in your hair (even when the sun is not out) made by the very talented Pam of myfusedglass. Have a look in her beautiful Etsy shop for all the beautiful light-filled things she makes. If you like dichroic glass as much as I do, you will be in seventh heaven. Anyway here is what was in my parcel:
There are three hair-slides, two were intended as presents but can I bear to give them away?! I must also confess to having purchased one or two others and not that long ago!
You can see them nestling in the box with two of the new ones. Aren't they just so beautiful? I had a dichroic glass hair-slide some years ago but it got dropped on a tiled floor and they don't bounce! Pam markets them as "jewellery for the hair" and that is exactly what they are. They aren't cheap as chips but thy aren't extortionate either bearing in mind each one is handmade and you could easily spend what three of them cost on a decent haircut / highlights. I would rather have these any day.
Hope your day has had some sunshine too!
This post is called Winter Sunshine 1 because tomorrow, if I have time, should see Winter Sunshine 2 - sunshine you can eat this time!
