By the kitchen sink

"Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things"
 Kakuzo Okakura

After a series of relatively mild days Winter has returned with a vengeance. Unable to go for walks, I roam aimlessly around the house basking in it's warmth, grateful for it's comfort.

I stop by the kitchen sink and watch the morning light play shimmering games upon the tiny leaves of the Angel Tears vine.  The serene expression of my fairy friend fills me with peace. Outside, the icy wind roars while I linger and dream...


  1. When will this winter ever end? It helps to have a bit of the outside inside your home. Sweet fairy!

  2. Sweet Alina...You have such a beautiful way with words! Your adorable little fairy looks like she loves sitting under those delicate branches as she waits for spring to arrive...Don't worry, it will be here soon enough! What a darling post! xoxo Paulette :D

  3. Difficult to imagine icy winds as I sit here in a singlet top! Your little fairy friend is so sweet peeking through that lovely veil of green. I hope that the rest of your week is wonderful x

  4. I love your little fairy. She looks very content sat there among all that green. I hope the weather improves for you soon. HEre it is wet and foggy and I have to go out in it soon. Hugs Sara

  5. Beautiful fairy! Stay warm,spring is just around the corner :0)

  6. How Beautiful Alina..so peaceful and meditative...thankyou for brining magic to my day...I needed a smile in my heart! hugs!
    I love that whole display..fulll of fairy enchantment! What a beautiful plant..I love it!
    Wishing you a beautiful wkd and sparkles to greet you from sun to moon!

  7. I love the plant Angel Tears. Such a sad sounding name, though. My favorite part of a woman's home is around her kitchen sink. I think this is an area that she keeps the things that makes her the most happy. It looks like this is true for you. Peace. Brianne

  8. I, too, feel the drag of winter but isn't the light, these days, glorious?

    I'm sorry that I'm not coming right away to your posts, Alina! I seem to just keep missing the "announcements" that there is one! I've been thinking of you!=]

    Love, Katy
