Will I ever see the sky again

Snow, rain and now thick fog. I am forgetting what it is to see a blue sky, and so is my camera. An evening with my friends on Saturday saw the wine glasses emptying and topped up a little too quickly and I woke up yesterday with the feeling that someone had sunk an anchor into my head. I am not a big wine drinker and now I remember why. A good time was had so I am not complaining. I just feel a little resentful towards myself for not having my Sunday with a crisp clear mind. But there is always next week.

I spent a few hours spent peacefully stitching by beloved glass beads to some vintage lace yesterday so all was not lost, and now the sun has just appeared through the clearing fog. Happy Monday to you.

I love that fish!

I know the fog was so thick this morning when I left for my swim it was quite scary! x

How on earth, on such a foggy day, do your photos still manage to capture that incredible luminosity which I associate with you?

Beautiful picture of the fog.
And what a lovely fish ornament.

That foggy photo looks so lovely - even more so from here in Australia where it's 42C today!! What a pretty tea cup. I love the beading you are doing on that lace. Lovely x

Yep, absolutely fantastic images. What type of camera are you using? Just lovely.

Foggy day, foggy head - perhaps next weekend will be better for both :) But the main thing was it was fun

Ohh, pretty pictures. When things are that pretty indoors, it doesn't matter if it's foggy outside!

Those glass beads look so gorgeous. What a wonderful way to cheer up such a crappy day. Happy Monday to you too.

THAT looks like a lovely Sunday. And I adore your teacup.

So..what will you do with that beautiful lace now?

Seems like you are having a lovely time for the sky to return though!

Heather Cameron said...

so I guess there wasn't a sumptuous lunch for friends on Sunday? Still looks beautiful to me - fog and all.

Blue skies are on their way...you are walking towards them, not away...they'll arrive soon, promise! xxx

The domestic novice said...

Always such beautiful compositions. I'm intrigued by what you're going to do with the lace - a belt perhaps?

Beautiful photo with the fog. It's been awfully windy and rainy here, hoping for a lovely Spring.

What a beautiful way to spend a dreary day. I don't know how you live with it. The days are glorious here at the moment and somewhat autumnal - love that word.

I love that view! I miss the fog. It looks like a lovely day.

cathleen said...

Oh, my, BEAUTIFUL. First visit here and I'm already thinking exquisite thoughts.

COCAMIA said...

The fog really hits me hard and can give me the worst kind of headache/migrane...wine can too!

Thimbleina said...

I have been reading your blog for a little while now. Can't remember how I got here. But the pictures you show have such beautiful things in, it really lightens up my day and shows the beauty in the everyday

kat said...

The lace is exquisite and the beads bring in the blue sky you miss.
Have you browsed Emma Cassi's bracelets I am always so inspired by them

What a lovely combination of beads and lace! I love it! I know what you mean about indulging and not having a clear head on a day off. Beautiful fog but I know what you mean about the sun. Its been snowing here for 3 days straight.

Rose said...
