happy day #8

This is really just a phrase, though I can’t do a post without sticking a nice picture in it. And I’ll add the link to the post that inspired it, as it’s a fellow blogger, and if you are interested it’s always good to know where to start with a bit of background..

Todays tiny little spark of inspiration is

Mother Christmas.

I like the subtle shift from Mrs Clause or Mary Clause. It suggests equal footing, rather than token sack darner, and a certain regal ancientness. In reality of course it had nothing to do with Clause or even really Christmas in its modern incarnation, with ties to the old pagan ways of pre-Christian Europe.
