There are so many celebrations during the month of December and so many words to describe all the merriment going on during the month. This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue is to pick one of those words for your challenge. Right now I am still faced with so many choices still to make regarding Christmas and unfinished challenges of my own so I knew right away what my word would be when I met Myra.

I came across Myra searching for a gift in one of our local vintage shops. She is a vintage photo postcard from France. Her hat is totally made of real feathers. I added a few jewels to the feather flowers. Not only did I just love her spirit, she inspired me. She looked as if she was decked out with her feather and jewel hat and ready for all the Festivities to come not letting her spirit be dampened by choices made or things not done.

There is so much that fills my heart at Christmastime, so much joy, love, gratitude for old friends, family, new friends,furry friends and blessings overflowing. It is literally a challenge in itself to put any of that into words or pictures that accurately describes the beauty and wealth of it all. So, I choose to embrace December in all it's Glory and FESTIVITIES. I will put on my best hat like Myra and enjoy the season!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my followers, old and new and may the New Year bring the Best to You!

English Literature

The theme this week at Inspiration Avenue is English Literature. A fascinating subject for sure and one that brings to mind so many subjects for this challenge. As I relived some of the history exploring the many avenues in which to go, I must say that I found myself as exhausted as Queen Mary below or maybe that was Queen Elizabeth, or Queen Victoria, or it could have been Queen Isabella. At any rate, I find myself in my busy days feeling the same way. "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to ART".
