winter around the house

snow! ice! brilliant sun! fire in the stove! all's well!
we had a relaxing, calm christmas. simple food and hanging out with family. pasta with the many fish. we watched "the great beauty" in the evening with big bowls of popcorn, then after that we wanted to watch another. so, "mid-august lunch".
frances was with her papa, and his great rambling family. cool cousins! when i spoke to her she sounded very happy in her fantastic composed way.

1. my cutting table. now, a writing table. and the big window, and the happy plants.
   we lost power for a few days- hence kerosene lamp. working on a business plan. yes. i. am.
2. home exterior - the window. the birch tree bent with ice.
3. an icey pine hand reaching for a red twig.
4. high up ice covered branches sparkling, and clinking.
5. driveway as if going out to the road.
6. max's folks house. snug.

question - how does the idea of a clothing "csa" sound to you? so, it would be a "csc"?. i've been thinking about it for a while.  one would subscribe, and based on which tier you chose, would receive a little wardrobe twice, or four times a year. this could be for women, or children.
let me know what you think, and please offer suggestions! could be cool!?

A CSC sounds interesting. Keep me in the loop about this. I'd like to know more as it progresses.

It sounds like you had a lovely Christmas. It's so different to ours here in Australia, where we spend time on the beach, eating salads and lazing in the sunshine.

A clothing CSA sounds quite appealing to me. It would be good to be able to choose types of colours (eg. monochrome, soft neutrals, bolder colours) that you like as well as the options you've mentioned.

Ooh, beautiful snow! City snow just isn't the same.

And I love the idea of a CSC.

I think a CSA (or CSC) is a brilliant idea - for me in particular, it would be helpful be able to pay in instalments to make it easier to afford, and it would be amazing to be able to choose sizes/colours/fabrics if it was possible without making it too complicated?

I'm looking forward to seeing where this plan goes!
