inspiration monday


it's Thanksgiving week here in America, and it's no secret to those who know me that i'm certainly inspired by food. i love every aspect of preparing a good meal.....and it's so much fun to think of my kitchen as a culinary studio! the peeling, chopping, and shredding of the ingredients is really no different than mixing paints, threading needles, or sharpening pencils. the stirring, sauteeing and seasoning of the food is much like the painting, sewing or drawing of a piece of artwork. the aromas of a dish setting up the anticipation of it being served, is likened to the beating of our hearts when we see our artwork coming to fruition. and the sharing of our meal with others is certainly no different than the thrill of offering a much-labored-over masterpiece to a loved one. whether we're cooking or crafting, we're creating from the heart.....and what could be better than that?!

the plate is your canvas
the cup carries the energy
the glass contains fine wine
the spoon has some caviar
the bread proudly displays pate
the platter holds chateaubriand
the ramekin a bit of creme brulee

the soul holds the love...

The cooking gene bypassed me completely. I'm lucky to be married to someone who has that gene. Enjoy your cooking and have a happy Thanksgiving.

I wish you THE best Christmas in your brand new home. Look...we're both celebrating Christmas in our new homes. I know mine is still a bit bare, but I am thankful that I have a place to sleep (and my job), even if my couch is falling apart! :)

Even though I have no family or friends here, I do hope that Santa will make his way to my little place and leave me at least one package of art supplies,as I had to leave so much behind relocating here. It really is heart-breaking sometimes.

BUT AGAIN, I am thankful I have my life, a car, my job, a roof over my head, my puppy, my talents, and a love to share with someone one day. :)

Big hugs! :)
