Birdhouses, to provide rest and refuge to the wild birds outside. A sleigh and a shovel, red, brown and rusty. And those windchimes that tinkle sweetly when the wind caresses them.
And definitely, a snowglobe. Those magical spheres filled with snow and a cute snowy landscape and lovely characters, that you turn upside down, and down the snowflakes fall- while you stare at them enchanted and kind of suspended between the Earth and Sky.
There are wool scarves, mittens, earmuffs; checks and stripes, tartans, polka dots.
All of these symbols of the Season are my comfort, my joy, my safety net, the little things that make me the happiest- they are just rooted in my soul, like a warm and cozy blanket you may need to wrap yourself into on a cold, winter's day, a blizzard outside making of the countryside a Winter Wonderland. Merry and Bright. Welcome Snow. All ready to Welcome the Spirit of the Season to come and heal the World.
I'd really love to tell you some meaningful anecdotes about this collection, and why it's so dear to my heart. But as the post is becoming really long, and I wish that you really savor it, I'll do that another time.
The "Warm and Cozy" collection, which includes all of these pieces and many more (like traditional baubles, ornaments, a cute shovel, birdhouses and a 30.5"tall display snowman, too!), lovingly designed/painted by me and produced by the wonderful DEMDACO Silvestri!, is now available for wholesale orders through your local DEMDACO distributor (and will be in stores in time for Christmas 2014).
I know there are many many persons out there cheering me on, supporting me along my journey, sharing their heart with me, just loving me! Could ever a girl be more blessed than that???
And this is the very reason why I leave the comments enabled on this post. But I wish to tell you I practice detachment from my results. Truth is real magic happened when I stopped considering/ listening to my ego, to to what I wanted, needed, to all of the fears and thousands worries it kept arising, and started to instead have BIG faith that all things are possible with God, Spirit, Mind, Love, and we are here on this Earth for a precise reason and it is a very good one. When I consciously said a big, loud YES! to what I'm called to do in this life (and licensing my work is just a part of that, that wasn't at all in my plans!). All that has happened to me, one synchronicity after another, that guided me to this very moment, is just the divine plan for me, to convey love and goodness, in one form or another, into this world.
You're very welcome to tell me and the other readers that will stop here about your favorite Winter/Christmas things, treats or decorations, traditions, if you love Snowmen, how you make them, your big (childhood or adulthood) dreams, or anything else you wish to share! Screams of delight and tears of joy are very welcome too, as they keep good vibes in the air!:)
