many muses musing - HOPE

something new

something new by she dreams of {tinsel}

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, 
and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.
-Emily Dickinson

I found this lovely silver "hope" charm by staciejewlery on etsy last week and I knew it would make the perfect giveaway for my holiday musing post. This delicate handcrafted charm is an everyday reminder that there is always hope. It is approximately 1/2 inch (1.4 cm) round and decorated with a silver star on the back allowing you to wear it two different ways.

I'm thinking of getting one for myself, as I've been unsuccessfully working on a personal project for quite some time, and perhaps this little trinket will be just the luck I need to finally make it happen in the new year :)

Please link your blog or flickr url in the linky tool provided below and/or leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the giveaway. You can share your hopes for 2012, or just leave any old comment to enter! (max 2 entries per person)

I look forward to seeing your submissions for the prompt HOPEYour creative holiday prompt for tomorrow is COSY.

I hope you all have a beautiful week filled with laughter and love.
I hope all your dreams come true in 2012.
Happy holidays and a peaceful new year to everyone!

Lovely photo. I might have to copy down that quote by Emily Dickinson and hang it on my wall. I'm looking forward to the start of a new year - and am hope-ful about making some changes to follow my heart more.

I am full of hope for the coming year as my daughter will give birth to our first grandchild.

As long as we live our lives with our glass "half full." we will know there is always hope. Thanks for reminding us of this today.
