I really miss you Nina. I am glad to hear you are doing well and are relaxed after the tough spring and summer you had. I retire in April so I will be broke but will have the time to maybe come visit for a day. I need a Miss Nina hug and one from Walter too. Here's hoping we all find peace and creativity in 2015.


How lovely to see this today, I have missed reading your posts Nina.
Have a wonderful Christmas xo

What a treat to discover your blog post and to read about what has been taking place since your last blog post. Your thanksgiving sounds like a wonderful time despite being sick, but you certainly have great people supporting you in your life, Nina! AMe the jewelry you have been making is gorgeous, as always!! I will have to pick up that copy of Belle Armoire so I can see the special necklace you have created for yourself - the tiny peek you shared has me itching to see more!
Your work is truly one of a kind, Nina, and having perused your blog since its inception, I can see your artistry throughout, along with the ways you have added elements as you've grown and matured as the artist you are. You have a beautiful body of work to be proud of!
It's also great to read about how you've been chomping to return to techniques you've learned in the past. I love learning new things from wonderful instructors, such as yourself, and it can take a year or two for me to return to what I have learned before incorporating some of it in my work. It's good to hear that I'm not alone in this!
I wish for you a most magical season and a New Year filled with more of the same!


I've missed your posts Nina! Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas and a Happy News Year!

i do miss your writing (:
merry christmas to you and your family .


So wonderful to see a new post from you; really missed your great photos and inspiring words. All the best to you!


How wonderful to hear from you. It's a gift to us - a lovely Christmas gift. My heart is smiling.

happy to read your post. Many changes have occurred in the kingdom and meeting for sustenance does not look likely in the near future. A telephone conversation might be nice but the royal page has misplaced your number and the Kingdom has a new number and shant be posting it here for the peasants to see. Perhaps you could send yours by this new fangled email type of communication - either to the email associated with this post or the one you have used in the past. If you use the past one, just send your number and no further message and the King will be in touch. Good day M'Lady.

How wonderful to find another post before years end Nina.....your words make me sigh, they paint such beautiful pictures........such a gift. I can imagine how lovely it would be to sit by the fire and enjoy the quiet evenings at Heartrock Hill.
We all lead such different and varied lives.....
Wishing you all the best for Christmas and into the new year, thank you for this lovely gift of a sneak peek into your world....Xx


Love reading your posts and seeing your work. Happy Holiday Season.


Dear Nina, I came upon your post quite by accident and for that I am truly grateful. Your art is magnificent and your writing is truly majikal !Such comfort in your words. Thank life is horrendous right now but reading your posts has given me hope that perhaps better days are on the horizon and to believe that good people do exist. Thank you and A blessed Holiday Season to you and yours.


Merry, Merry Christmas to you too. While I have missed your posts, I must confess that the photo of the Queen's Anne Lace held in front of a blue August sky has made me smile on so many dreary and grey days. With so much brown & bare, I forget how much color can fill the world and it is such a lovely reminder.

After an evening spent knotting pearls, I was thinking of you so I popped on here this morning to say hello. Imagine my surprise when I saw this lovely long blog post. I can't wait to see the article you mentioned. What a treat. I hope the new year is starting out wonderfully for you, Miss Nina.


Why wait for spring? How 'bout dropping in to write an update now (soon)? :) Would love to hear how you are and what you've been up to. You are ALWAYS an inspiration.
