To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

Handmade is Beautiful

A lady my Mother works with has made some beautiful tree ornaments from recycled Christmas cards. I haven't decided if I will make the time to craft some of my own this year or not but they sure are sweet.
