I heard a bird sing~In the dark of December ~A magical thing~And sweet to remember. 25 Days of Christmas~Day 6

I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December

A magical thing

And sweet to remember.


'We are nearer to Spring

Than we were in September,'

I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December."

- Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, I appreciate each and every one! HSS!

    The blush of Liv's cheek is so beautiful!! This shot leads me to think of Cinderella, with the little birdy helping her dress.
    You are the best Bekah and we are lucky to have your imagination right before us.

    Sorry to hear you were under the weather. But on the bright side, you should be 110% for the holidays!

    So adorable. Just look at that expression--what a sweetie-pie.

    Definition of muse:
    a. A guiding spirit.
    b. A source of inspiration.

    You two are amazing. I hope Santa brings Liv something very special because she has been the perfect muse and model for your fabulous creations.
