Beautiful Places to Share.

A Child's Calendar : www.theMagicOnions.com

I have some beautiful places to share with you today. Look what I found… utterly enchanting calendars for children. The illustrations are too wonderful for words. I LOVE the circular concept of this calendar. The year is circular, isn’t it… Winter leads to Spring that leads to Summer, to Autumn and back to Winter. Of […]

Lessons from Nature.

Lessons from Nature : www.theMagicOnions.com

  I am appreciating this quote from Bernie Siegel about the lessons we can learn from nature. I am contemplating change and how one can move towards change without letting the apprehension and anxiety of the unknown take away from the joy and excitement of a long anticipated change. And then this quote speaks to […]

The Magic of Art

Fairy Drawing : Work In Progress - www.theMagicOnions.com

I watch Kitty draw with utter amazement. Look what she can do!   How can she do this? I certainly can’t, although I suppose I make art in a different form. Her dad writes beautifully and, perhaps if he had felt a passion for art like she does, and had worked to perfect it for […]

I had a bunch of Dahlias in the Sunny House last week. Oh my… they kept getting more impossibly beautiful as the days went by.  Of course, I grabbed my camera and they became a muse as I played with my new lens… so pretty!   (And, I love my lens!) Look at the color of […]

Peace in Silence

Beautiful nature photos from The Magic Onions

I have been reorganizing my photos into folders on my computer. I have so many that this project will literally take years! I can’t seem to delete a single photo… each one leads to a special memory that I makes me smile or wonder at how amazing it all is and I just have to […]

Summer Slowdown

Beautiful summer, filled with golden sunshine. Our day’s are warm and slow and we have given in to delicious lethargy… and surrendered to watermelon, cold from the fridge. Lazy afternoons are spent reading in the shade of the avocado tree and suppers are cool and fresh. Baths are tepid and we sleep with only the […]

Hello, August!

    I want to begin August by sharing some beautiful blogs I think you’ll love. A Soulful Life – dreamer, poet, Mama, artist, maker of happy messes, fan of unmade beds. Whole Family Rhythms – I’ve been hot and it’s wonderfully refreshing to see winter photos. I particularly love Meagan’s ‘in the kitchen’ posts. […]

Beauty and Insight

Welcome, July, the month of Summer. The month of watermelon and popsicles. The month of dips in the lagoon, cooling off in the sprinkler and long, balmy evenings. Welcome, July, the month of being with my children all-day-long and hearing their laughter, and mine, filling the house. Welcome, July, the month of fairy gardens, bees […]
