Thoughtful Sunday and the dust of daily life

.







The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

- Pablo Picasso



Ja, das Jahr 2014 war und ist es noch, ein Jahr des Malens für mich gewesen. Sicher, ich habe auch in den Jahren davor gemalt, aber nicht so viel und nicht mit so viel Freude, wie in dem jetzt fast vergangenen 2014. Und es wird in 2015 sicher noch mehr werden, denn ich bin voller Ideen und Energie. Die Fotografie leidet etwas darunter, denn meine Freizeit ist nach wie vor begrenzt und ich kann von meiner Kunst (noch) nicht leben. Außerdem weiß ich,  ich bin zu wenig bei euch in euren wundervollen Blogs zu Besuch gewesen, was mir aufrichtig leid tut. Aber ich habe euch nicht vergessen.

Ich möchte mich bedanken für die langen Jahre der Freundschaft, des Interesses und der wundervollen, inspirierenden Kommentare und Verbindung.




Möge das Jahr 2015 für Euch ein besonders gutes werden.

Best wishes for Happy Holidays and a magnificent New Year.



wünscht von Herzen - Isabella

Christmas is the keeping-place for memories of our innocence.”

Take time during the rush of the holidays to enjoy the things in life that really matter. Relish the quiet moments spent with friends and loved ones. May the wonder of Christmas surround you throughout the season. Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Definitely

.






Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday. The tree, the lights, all the presents to unwrap.
Could there be anything more magical than that?!

Merry Christmas!

Remembrance

.





Christmas — that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance — a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved. 

- Augusta E. Rundel

Christmastide

.






Whose heart doth hold the Christmas glow
Hath little need of Mistletoe;
Who bears a smiling grace of mien
Need waste no time on wreaths of green;
Whose lips have words of comfort spread
Needs not the holly-berries red—
His very presence scatters wide
The spirit of the Christmastide.


- John Kendrick Bangs, 1862-1922

a Christmas candle

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.

Friday Finds - 'twixt heaven and earth

.




It is the Christmas time:
And up and down 'twixt heaven and earth,
In glorious grief and solemn mirth,
The shining angels climb.

~Dinah Maria Mulock





Between all the Christmas stuff on the floor I found this cute little angel Is now hanging on the kitchen door to the cottage garden and conjures me every morning a smile to face .... !!!

Anticipation

.






As a child, I was bonkers for Christmas. The entire month of December,
 I couldn't sleep at night from anticipation.

my north - a hipsta story 2




More than seven million people emigrated through the port of Bremerhaven between 1830 and 1974. At one time, Bremerhaven was the largest emigration port in Europe. More than 90 percent of the emigrants who sailed from here were headed for the USA and Canada and the route across the North Atlantic became the world's busiest “bridge to overseas”.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
 

― H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You
