The way to school No2-So much symbolism...

We are closing Christmas and in most parts of the world people get happy and excited about it. But this year in my family (serious illness) and in my country Greece(crisis) There is not really a Christmas feeling. 
So every little thing that reminds me of Christmas is like a treasure  and those stars made me smile so I thought I would share them with you.
After all, when you lose something, you appreciate it more and I'm positive that good times will come again.
Because of going through some rough times I make a special effort to find little things I can hold on to like this bright painting on a wall
And a nice detail on a doorway. Just because I 'm under pressure doesn't mean that all the beauty in the world has gone away. I just have to make a conscious effort to see it.
And that's where my instant camera comes handy. Through the lence I noticed this nice vintage looking tree. It doesn't matter that the first thought that crossed my mind was :Oh!It's down instead of standing proudly, a symbol of the lost Christmas spirit. It's still such a beautiful tree.

The last photo I want to share with you is one of those delicate plants that can endure long periods without water. I feel a bit like those plants and deep down I know that even if the water is little at the moment me and my country will prosper again . I only hope it will be soon.

On the crochet front , thanks to the inspiration I got from attic24 I have made some progress to revamp my  plain black sweater. I'm still experimenting because I don't like the big contrast between the black color and the colorful sqares. I have a similar red sweater in need of revamp that I think the colorful squares fit more.I'm working on it. In the main time I wish you a wonderful evening.
