At the edge of Winter






We experienced our first snowfall this year.
I happened to be at Christ In The Wilderness   Retreat Center 
when the snow fell.





Folkloric Bavarian Sweater jacket from Germany helps
keep out the winter chill.




Metal angel holding red cat.







Metal Roses


Angel with violet dress in 
a field of yellow flowers.




It helps to be frugal when using sheet metal. This material is 
more expensive then sheets of paper.  I will try to sell some angels
 on the Etsy shop to help pay for more materials.


Wishing you warm embraces as we enter into the white.

  1. lovely work, you're at an inspiring place. We had a little snow a fortnight ago, but it has turned chill with nightfall tonight and has showered hail. Looks as if we're in for a dose of real Winter this week

    1. Thank you Valerianna for your encouragement!
      My jacket was really the only thing that I purchased in Germany to bring home. I'm so glad I did.

  3. A metal angel holding a red cat :)))
    I admire the expression in the faces of your angels, they are aware of light and darkness, they know there is suffering in the world, and only when they see this, angels can do the work of angels.
    And the face of the cat is priceless for feline reasons. Love!

  4. Hello Stille Linde! The angels help lift the burden I feel when I become overwhelmed at the suffering of innocent creatures.

    Thank you for being here.

  5. Like Stille Linde "I admire the expression in the faces of your angels, they are aware of light and darkness, they know there is suffering in the world, and only when they see this, angels can do the work of angels.
    And the face of the cat is priceless for feline reasons. Love!"

    ...Stille Linde expressed exactly what I had in my feeling for these angels!! I love them VERY much!! VERY VERY MUCH!

    All the photos are so beautiful, arranged by a beautiful soul, being in connection with deers and any kind of animls, plants, nature and Bavarian wild farmers :)

  6. Hi, Ramona - The full moon has been bright in these unusual clear nights, and we are frozen deep but no snow on the ground yet. Maybe Wednesday here. I love your sheet metal work, and marvel that under your magic creativity, the cold stiff metal transforms to warm, organic images full of the holy spirit. Best wishes, stay warm! -sus
