Poem - Sonnet 97: How Like a Winter Hath My Absence Been

Sonnet 97: How like a winter hath my absence been

By William Shakespeare

How like a winter hath my absence been
From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
What old December's bareness everywhere!
And yet this time remov'd was summer's time,
The teeming autumn, big with rich increase,
Bearing the wanton burthen of the prime,
Like widow'd wombs after their lords' decease:
Yet this abundant issue seem'd to me
But hope of orphans and unfather'd fruit;
For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
And thou away, the very birds are mute;
Or if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer
That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

Etsy Find – Black Lace Jars for Home Decor

 Black Lace Jars for Home Decor 

Black Lace Mason Jars – Decor with a Gothic Victorian romantic feel.
I found these on Etsy, love them! The set has a vase jar and two candle holder jars.  Here is the link where I found them.
I think they would look lovely in the bedroom, living area or even the bathroom.
Seeing these cool jars done up in lace has inspired me!

Decor – Vanity Table

Decor – Vanity Table 

This is such a nice addition to any bedroom or if you’re lucky to have a room that you have for all your clothes & accessories.  A perfect little area to do your make-up!  I’d love it if it were dark wood or black and antique gold/ brass hardware (Goth it up a bit more).
