“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Gingerbread Love

I hope the first week of the new year has been sweet to you!
We had a great time,
 there was a Stephen King  marathon,
We had  some fudge, a cheese platter and sparkling cider:)
I was asleep by half past😴
Now I'm ready for the next  holiday!

Yesterday our local classical station featured a live audio stream from the 
Metropolitan Opera.
It's one of my favorites..
'Hansel and Gretel'
I love it for various reasons..

2. I had the little golden book 'Hansel and Gretel' when I was a child💕
(which, by the way I just got for Christmas from these awesome girls!)
3.I love gingerbread cookies..
they're my favorite kind of ornament, doll, pillow, drawing or shape to collect.
4.When Gabriella was eleven, she was part of the gingerbread chorus
with Arizona Opera.
I helped organize a party given for the children on opening night
(making the decor, favors and treat bags, etc)
 I was dubbed, Gingerbread Queen!
lol, I even got a certificate.
It was a lot of fun.
5. The music.
Before it began, Helena and I made some gingerbread cookies.
 While it was on we made some cute little crafts..
It was beautiful as usual..and as usual I cried at the end..haha!
It really took me back...

I made this digital art to show you
what my house would look like if I could have it any way I wanted:)
I'd live there and make art and never turn any children into cookies..
well, maybe just the bratty ones! haha

 That's it for now....
I will be stopping by to visit your blogs very soon.
Thank you for the New Year wishes!
