I had this vision of gathering some branches and hanging some origami shapes from them and placing them on the mantle, so I invited C to make some origami with me. The only trouble is I wanted to use some old music sheets for this, but boy is that paper tough to fold.
We decided to try for some simple rabbits.
Epic fail bunnies…lol!
We decided that what we needed was some hot chocolate.
Now there is a Barista in my kitchen, a wonderful gift years ago from my children, and that Barista rarely gets used as I really don’t drink coffee. But it’s a dynamite way to steam milk! So I took it apart and cleaned out the dust, the dead moth and the spider’s web, filled the chamber with fresh water and steamed up some lovely hot chocolate; Sbux peppermint hot chocolate for C and Maxim’s for me.
We poured our hot chocolate into my French Cafe au Lait bowls. These poor bowls don’t get much service since I bought them in Paris years ago, and it’s lovely to get them out once in a while.
I threw a small handwoven cloth on the ground and we reevaluated our bunnies.
Chloe ran to the studio and brought down some real origami paper and folded the sweetest little fox! See? Everything’s better with chocolate!
Next she used the epic fail bunny note paper and folded a larger fox. (And look who found a lap)
Maybe my vision of lovely origami shapes hanging from branches might come true…stay tuned.
