Small Moments To Dream


"The thistle's downy seed my fare, 
My drink the morning dew;
I perch at will on every spray,
My form genteel, my plumage gay,
My strains forever new."

-William Cowper

I am so, so grateful for these busy days in the studio, happily creating. And even when the day's work is done, I steal away small moments to dream of such things, like where a tiny Goldfinch might his treasures keep.

How sweet! I love it on the box! It's been so hot here, I'm having trouble getting things done.

Beautiful words and a beautiful box! I have a couple of thistle feeders and one hangs right in front of my desk. I catch myself not working, but watching the goldfinch eat and play. It has gone a little quiet, so I think some nesting must be going on nearby. Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
