Friday mémoire (or, here is one I made earlier)

I have made a fair few brooches in this series but this is my favourite. I made it 2 years ago while I hummed and listened to Winter Song by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson.  It was a curious time.  Our first winter in France.  I felt far from 'home'.  

It is one of those songs that you stumble across and then some how absorb into your very being.  This song it part of me.

For those of you back 'home' I hope your Bonfire Night goes with a most terrific bang and your night is a sparkly as the most sparkly sparkler.
