As some of you know, Pomegranate Communications has become my primary publishing partner this year. I wanted to send them a special "thank you" and so I experimented with creating Faerie Houses out of actual pomegranates - organic, of course !
Originally I had hoped to send them the real, dried little houses, but I learned that pomegranates don't look so wonderful when they are hollowed out and dried... and they get much smaller. So I sent them the image instead. They loved it.
I wanted to try it again and see if I could improve on the design, which is what we have here.
My sister had given me some clever little battery-powered, LED tea lights and I affixed one inside the roof of the house and waited for dusk...
Happy Holidays to all and to all a wonderful New Year !!
(Some, like myself, see the year as renewing itself on the Winter Solstice)
