on December 31...

My dear Friends,

As much as it has been wonderful to have so many of you find me just because, and I have really enjoyed meeting all the new people, with the amount of traffic , questions, etc, I am turning the blog into a private. Right now I can only help to a certain extend , and also... I need a safe space to write about my life and thoughts. If you want to keep reading - leave a comment with email address, I'll add you in. I am changing current email address - also due to excessive traffic. I am sending out the new email address to all contacts. If you don't get one - leave a comment, I'll make sure you do. After the changes are made, I will not be accessing the old account. The closing date is December 31. I hope to share the next year, and many to come, with all of you.

Christmas village populars

There are many little Christmas villages set up for Christmas. I found it interesting to see some of the things that are so loved here. I must say, I agree with most, if not all. It is so wonderful to see the beautiful craftsmanship be treasured.

A handmade leather key chain for change:
Handcrafted leather bags , of these styles:
Leather notebooks :

Handcrafted birch bark jewelry boxes. These are particularly warm to my heart , as they are traditional and cultural to us:

Handmade WARM wool scarves:

Mittens with open fingertips! Love those!
Or fingerless hand covers. Surprisingly, VERY warm!
And - never would have guessed - really fun, and WARM double lined wool hats. And , believe me, you WANT all the lining!

Bundle up and let's go caroling!

12 years ago...

12 years ago, hopeful, dreaming and naive, I left my homeland, where I was raised in love, to come to the land I always saw myself in. My over a decade journey have not been easy, but it was worth it. I only pray that people of all races, colors and languages, can stand up taller, be stronger with hearts softer, and unite. This is a miraculous place. Love it.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,
I've been exceptionally good this year. And , as you know, I had my list all done early. And kids and I have even written and delivered it to you in person at Macy's. But since the cold hit... I discovered that what I have is not enough to keep myself from freezing... So, about my list... Can you erase it all and get me these instead? I know it's a short notice, but I had really no idea that this part of the world CAN get THIS cold. I promise, I'll be even better next year!

And since Yeva can't really tell you... She'd REALLY like one of these:

I love you tons, Santa! I hope you read my blog soon!

PS : since you KNOW how freezing it's been here, and as I've been warned , it's just a start... and we know EVERY bone and feather in the Museum of Natural History... And love art so much... I mean, you really don't HAVE to... but you really like coming home to a BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN home, right? Over a ruin from a battleship... So... THIS one would be just the solution. No pressure , though. Just only if you like me sane... XOXOXO

A wee bit of myself...

Christmas is coming... Cold weather is hitting... Memories of childhood rise up... Here is a little bit of me, expressed.
