On the street you live

with 13 comments

 

“I have often walked down this street before;
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before.
All at once am I several stories high.
Knowing I’m on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?
Does enchantment pour out of ev’ry door?
No, it’s just on the street where you live!”Β  By the great Nat King Cole

*~*~*

The above is one of my favourite songs that somehow I associate with Christmas for no other reason than my mum had a Nat King Cole compilation album that she used to break out over the holidays and this was one of the songs on it.

UnKindness’s latest release of a beautiful country cottage with large glass windows and door plus snowy roof gave me inspiration for the rest of the scene above.Β  Click on the picture for a larger version.

    • Yes, I like it, too! It’s rather versatile because as it’s made from a burlap sack you could perhaps use it in a porch as well as outside.

  3. Looks like a mountain retreat home I used to spend holidays in when I was a kid. Thank you Moz!

    • Awwws, glad you enjoyed the post, Landa Panda! I’d wanted to illustrate the song for a while now, but was waiting for a suitable snowy cottage with a large window so I could get Christmas scene to show through it. The windows are a wee bit more frosted in the default cottage but as it’s modify you can edit them with ease.
