It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .

Capturing the holiday lights is a photography skill that I have yet to master. Nonetheless I am pretty pleased at how these pictures turned out. Once again I used my Nikkor 50mm 1:14D lens with the camera set on P mode and an ISO of 1600. Hope you enjoy.

Christmas Tree
As you can see from this photo . . . I still need to find a skirt for the tree. :-)

I love the decor over my fireplace. This photo is a little darker than I would like. :-( Still trying to find the right angle on the external flash so that the overhead light on the fireplace doesn't cast a shadow or the flash doesn't wash out the picture all together. :-( Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The idea of adding a wreath in front of the mirror was inspired by the gal over at In My Own Style. I originally learned of her blog because her mantel was posted PK's blog, Room Remix. Both of these ladies have some INCREDIBLE decorating idea. Go take a peek. You will not be disappointed.

I previously posted a picture of this little vignette I created. Since then I exchange the frame for a mirror and viola! Luv the additional elegance the mirror adds.


In addition to hanging ornaments on the tree this year I am displaying the ornaments in various clear glass or apothecary jars. For this particular display I sprinkled the ornaments with a little snow for an added touch of whimsy. The little angel I purchased at a flower shop but can easily be duplicated . . . a Cricut image . . . a little glitter and you've got an instant angel.

Well this is all for now. As always, thanks for stopping by . . .
