Lantern Lighters

 
On the last weekend I had a small day out visiting the Cabarlah markets which is always an interesting visit. There a good array of stalls to look through and I noticed a lot were now selling handmade vintage craft items like tea cosy's and such. I came away with some books (of course) and a rooster tea towel with a crochet topper. All in all a good day out.

 
And a day at the market isn't a day out unless you buy something for morning smoko, I came home with a tray of different slices for $5.
 
 
I've also been working on some drawing's and paintings. Whimsy things with little stories I make up as I paint. Theatre Of The Lantern Lighters is a small piece which has possiblties for more ideas. I was making some Christmas paper lanterns (will be posting about that soon) for the tree at Christmas and I think that inspired this little painting.
 
I once read some where, God gave people Guardian Angels to look after them. To help look after the plant and animal kingdom he sent the Fairies. Another thing I read about Fairy origins is that they are the Angels who wouldn't take sides when God and Lucifer were at war; God banished them to Earth. I don't know about you but I like the first one better.
 
Now, I have some stitching to do.
 
 
 
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening wherever they are.
