Christmas decorations

I generally decorate two Christmas trees; one real & one artificial. The real tree is generally adorned with burnt orange/sienna & gold colored ornaments. Our second tree, the artificial tree, is generally decorated with ornaments inspired by the beautiful colors of Hanukkah. This year I decided not to buy a real tree and to mix ornaments from both trees.

So although I am still trying to decorate the Christmas tree I wanted to share with you this little tray I made today. The tray, which is actually a picture frame, was inspired by the gal over at House of Smiths. When you visit her blog be sure to check out her pantry. It is simply unbelievable!

I am pleased with how the 'tray' is turning out. I am also pleased to have captured a rather nice photo of the tray without the use of natural light. I used my Nikkor 50mm 1:14D lens with the camera set on P mode and an ISO of 1600. By George I think she's finally got it! LOL.

As always, thanks for stopping by . . .
