Nearly There, Christmas Wreath and Pudding

The Advent candle has burnt its way through December and we are now at Christmas Eve, nearly there and with excitement brewing in the LIveWires’ homes.

Advent candle

We were at the Gallery this morning for Christmas greetings and choccies! We passed a rather lovely wreath on the way back to the car park.

Rather than make lots of mince pies, it was easier to make a Galette Jalousie, not sure if you can see the gold lustre to make it festive!

It was my day in the gallery today, surrounded by beautiful things.  Click on any image to see more detail.

Rumi, Tate St Ives and The Moon

Many of us are reeling after our general election.   As one friend we serendipitously  met in St Ives today said, “We all need some time for convalescence.” Like us, J had gone to the sea to help with recovery. We also visited Tate St Ives to touch those bits of our souls and hearts that need extra care right now.
We have to hold on to hope.

It was such a wild day, gusts of wind of 60mph and driving rain – pathetic fallacy at its best.

We love The Tate and I will show you tomorrow some of the wonderful Otobong Nkanga’s exhibition. For now, one of my favourite paintings.

About to drive away from the carpark after a meeting with the fabulous artists from Fannie and Fox, the moon appeared over the roof tops. It was a full moon yesterday and this was just beautiful to see.

Dawn, Shop Window and Redruth Drapery

Dawn saw the horizon on fire this morning.

Here is part of the Christmas window display at Fannie and Fox in Penryn, all  Advent  windows.

There has been a wonderful fund raising auction at The Redruth Drapery this evening and well over £3000 was raised for Bill’s Attic to be moved to Krowji.

Thanksgiving, Robin and Beech Tree

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends, family and readers across the pond.

After singing this morning, I was delighted to see a Robin on the decking just outside the door of the cafe,  Muddy Beach, where we all go for coffee and a catch-up.

After coffee time, I walked up through Penryn to call in at the gallery, Fannie&Fox,  with my new work as there is a re-hanging today.  Outside there is an enormous beech tree with some masts still hanging on. There are Christmas trees along the streets (but too soon to show such things!) and it seemed as if Nature had left her baubles hanging on the tree.

Angels, Brooches and Clothing

I’ve been on duty today at the Gallery where I show my glass. In the quiet moments, I managed to foil some more angels for the Christmas Market.  I’ll show you when they are finished.

It is lovely to spend the day surrounded by beautiful things.

Brooches made by Ann Butland – one of these sold today

Beautiful top made by Pam Tongue, hand printed on merino wool and silk. The amazing hat is made by Phil Kincaid.

Mural, Plastic Bottles and Cacti

The mural outside one of my favourite shops, Just Delights, has recently been done for winter. The mural is changed each season and pleases me every time I drive through to choir.  To find the others, put mural into the search.

By Elizabeth Perry

After singing today, I did my shift in Fannie and Fox, the lovely gallery in Penryn where my glass now sells. It is a real pleasure to sit among so many beautiful things. Here are some for you to see.
