Snowball system

That´s my hanging for December, growing
according to schedule...













It´s composed of potato printed snowflakes and
given border and fabric...













... pieces of and seams from a pair of white
cotton pyjama pants the former owner finally
discarded with a heavy heart and gave them to
me, after having taken them twice already to a
tailor´s to be mended...













This extraordinary moon reminded me of a curtain
I´d thrifted for its flowers, so I dug it out and
decided to use a brown one here, impersonating
these with their snowy hats, on the balcony...













This was taken last week, though, by now it´s
raining. I considered a snow yoyo... No.













So it will be just a little humble white cotton
square, representing snows long gone by...













And there´s a silk stem...














And there´s a foot-note, about shopaholism -
no, not me, I´ve confessed about my three red bags
already recently (in the comments to the Winter
Pastels post), and that is it... - but I´ve been
mentioned here at Shopaholic... - as a journalist,
I´ve been working on consumer information topics
myself for a long time, and know what a tightrope
walk it can be, so I think they´re doing quite a
good job...

love the story behind this wonder. the snow scene is a perfect example of how a single moment can define a piece...

As the record keeps a ski. .ppp..ing.skipping. . .I just love it,(I do sound like a broken record, yes?) too much about it to list everything. Nice of them to list you on shopaholics.
