"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Lovely Gifts from Lovely Friends

I have been recovering from a nasty bout of food poisoning..... so I've not felt much like eating or...blogging.... but, I am better today and now can share a photo of the lovely gifts I received over Easter.
First, is this gorgeous painting from KJ. It was done by Lolo - I'm sure you recognise her amazing and magical style. KJ aptly chose this Robin and her eggs for me. It also has a "stamp/quote from Miyoko Ohno" that reads "Balance is Beautiful".....something that resonates with me - as I am always striving to become more balanced.... (I am a girl who lives on the Mountain Tops or in the Deepest Valleys.)
Also pictured is my "Winning Treat" from Suki - our Mountaintop Artist/Poet.... it is some of her famous REAL Maple Sugar candy. I have been too ill to sample it - but today, I feel well enough to have a piece!
Although I am a new blogger, I have met and made some fabulous friends.... I feel fortunate to have become a part of this wonderful world.
Love to all,
♥ Robin ♥


  1. Isn't Suki wonderful? Sorry you've been feeling a bit under the weather. Glad to hear you're on the mend.

  2. hello robin, i'm glad you have some sweet goodies to enjoy while you recover. i'm wrestling with some chest thingy myself, my energy not very strong today.

    lo's piece is a treasure. i'm glad you have it.


  3. Willow - yes, Suki is quite a great lady and very sweet. And......WOW I just sampled her Maple Sugar Candy......Yummy! (It will be really nice with a cup of....COFFEE!) Ha-ha!

    KJ....poor girlee.....it makes you really appreciate being healthy, doesn't it? Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to have our health. Take it easy today, ok?
    I ADORE my Lolo piece..... and I ADORE YOU for giving it to me.

    Love to both,

    ♥ Robin ♥

  4. It's funny to see my painting with the candy because I used to devour that stuff when I was a kid! Now I couldn't even take a nibble. My husband would eat the whole box though ;P

    I'm glad you won the candy and I'm glad you like your painting. I had fun doing it!

    So glad your nasty bout of food poinsoning is gone too.
