Computer and Back problems

Just wanted to let everyone know.  I had to stay off the computer for awhile as I have a slipped disc and setting here was very painful. Last night was my frist night to finally get some rest and am feeling better.  Yesterday my backlight on my computer screen went.  God must really want me to stay off this computer for awhile.  So until I get it fixed I have to hold a trouble light up to it to barely see the screen.  So all of this has limited my ability to blog and visit anyone..    But it has been interesting just laying around and letting my mind wonder without pressure of getting things done.   Something I haven’t experience for quite a few years now.  Life without staring into the computer for hours isn’t such a bad thing.  Anyway my friends hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and if my computer isn’t fixed by New Years I am wishing you a Happy New Year.

Hugs Carrie

Paintings by the Ice Princess

There once was an Ice Princess who visited a friends gallery of paintings.  Inspired by his free flowing art work, she too wanted to create paintings that would flow and evolve.  Realizing she had neither the right materials nor the abilities to create exactly what her friend had, so looking around her surroundings she gathered what she had to use and would create here own work of art.

She called upon the strength of the winter’s full moon to clear the skies creating the coldest of nights.


Using her creek as a canvas she searched for just the right paintbrush.


Stepping back she realized what one sees can be viewed so differently depending on what angle you look at things.


And so she began to paint using all of nature’s elements to guide her strokes.

Realizing the patterns she was creating were beautiful, she decided to add a touch of color.

Not everyone has the abilities to create a painting or a life that someone else has…

The gift is to take what you have to work with and create you own

Tapestry of Life…


Thanks to the world of nature I was given these beautiful paintings to preserve.

Wishing you this Christmas and always
Peace Love Joy
and a
Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night…

Frozen in Time

 Nature creates it own tapestries of art.   With water as its paint and cold air as its brush,  producing paintings and sculptors frozen in time.


"Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey,
and enjoy every idle hour. "
-   John Boswell

 Natures frozen canvas is filled with the every changing movement in her.


Her frosty hand lays colours of white and blue to the warm tones of her body.

 PB210050    PB220077

 Her designs all reflect the natural beauty which is only hers to create.


With her whites and blues there is even hints of pinks while mixing shades with her body.

 PB220079  PB210056

 The texture in her painting bring out the depth in her brushes.


"Lo!  now the direful monster, whose skin clings to his strong bones, strides o'er the groaning rocks:  He withers all in silence, and his hand unclothes the earth, and freezes up frail life."  -   William Blake, Poetical Sketches -Winter, 1783 

 PB280016     PB280047

 Clinging like feathers to the green of life only to disappear with the warmth of the sun...


      She is not only a painter.   But also a sculptor.

 PB280068  PB280082

 The Yin and Yang in her.


 Life beneath her frozen mirror.

"Ice on the earth, bitter black frost, and a winding sheet of snow
upon her withered breast, and deep within me, dread and ice."
-   Jessica MacBeth,
Winter Poems


"Someone painted pictures on my Windowpane last night --
Willow trees with trailing boughs And flowers, frosty white,
And lovely crystal butterflies; But when the morning sun
Touched them with its golden beams, They vanished one by one."
-   Helen Bayley Davis, Jack Frost


 Hope you enjoyed Mother Natures art thru her paintings and sculptors frozen in time.  Cold as she may be sometimes one can still find a warm feeling in the beauty that God gave her to share.

Remember to share what you can with whomever you can and help bring a warm feeling to someone’s life.

May you have a blessed
Good Morning…   Good Afternoon…   Good Night…
Whatever it is to you.

Blue Winter Reflections

Take a glimpse of a world mirrored with my thoughts. Journey with me as I search the depths of
natures winter reflections. 

In the Blue of the Day...
I see reflections of a world fill with
Hope   Peace   Beauty




    In our real world that is not always
what we see or feel....



So we stare into the deep pools
Looking for answers that already exist... 





We must learn to be filled with
joy to Live a Life
Our Creator so gave us....



To feel Love
Even in the darkness  moments




The World is what we make of it...
What you see is merely a reflection of
who we are......


We are the Keepers of
Our Bodies and Our Planet....
Disrespect for either is disrespect for our Creator


Care for your Earth and she will care for you......


Care for your Body and your Body
will give you strength to Care for Others


Care for Others and God will Smile


When God smiles our Spirits will Soar.......

Care to Care


To All My Friends

Good Morning…   Good Afternoon…   Good Night…

Whatever it is to you

Simply a Sunday Sunset 7 with Colours of my Sky

Come sit with me on my deck with a nice hot spiced wine and enjoy the skies nature painted for me in the month of November .  Normally I never get to see such beautiful skies here.  I think the more then normal cloudy days and mists help contribute to the extra colour this year.

So bundle up as its getting a little chilly on the deck and just imagine that hot spiced wine.

PB090027     P9190003


 The sky always carry's my spirit away to far away places. 


 Into the golden glow the light surrounds you.


 A warm feeling always comes within yourself.

  PB080020     PB080025

 You want to fly onto rooftops for a better view.




     Ever changing making each time you look into the sky an new experience.

PB230012    PB230016 

 Sometime the patterns help you to see something new in your spirit.


 Other times it just brings a peace that only natures beauty and God can bring to us.


  When the mist rises to the the skies..
You are drawn to look deeper.


PB280098    PB280103

 In looking deeper nature brings you closer to God.


 When you are close to God you reflect back the beauty that lies within all of us.


Well friends my hot spiced wine is empty
and it is really getting cold out.

May you have a blessed
Good Morning…  Good Afternoon…  Good Night…
