They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound, 
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, 
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known 
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, 
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain; 
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, 
To the end, to the end, they remain.

Like most of you ,I'm sure, i have begun to do at least one or two little bits of Christmas shopping. This is a wee pendant that i order from Home Studio, for my little sister. When she bought her first house i searched everywhere in an attempt to find her the ugliest garden gnome i could find. And since then have always picked up an odd looking gnome if i see one.
 This wee guy however, is not at all ugly, but i did think it would make her laugh! 
Feel free to have a look at Home Studio on Etsy they have a great selection of pendants  : )

Have a good Bonfire night tomorrow.

Remember, remember the 5th of November,
Gunpowder Treason and Plot, 
I see no reason why Gunpowder treason 
should ever be forgot.
On the 5th of November here in Britain we celebrate Guy Fawkes night, it commemorates the 5th of Nov in 1605 when a plot to blow up the houses of Parliament and the then King, James I, was foiled. One of the group, Guy Fawkes has been attributed as being the leader of the group so we build bonfires, make "Guys" (life size effigies of Guy Fawkes) through them on the bonfires and have wonderful firework displays. (The cellars beneath the houses of Parliament were found to be full of barrels of gunpowder)
The tradition of the Guy has fallen away somewhat and in general most people go to locally organised displays but it is all good fun and is usually followed by baked potatoes, soup and toffee apples : )
