This week’s photo challenge topic is Grand.

Last night I went to a friend’s house for a party. I love going there, especially at the holidays because she is an antique collector and a fabulous decorator. She moves her pieces around and combines them in a new ways every year. The family room mantle and fireplace decorations this year were grand!

One of my favorite decorative touches was the punch bowl full of antique mother-of-pearl buttons she has been collecting for many, many years. A grand collection…and what a wonderful way to display them!

Cee’s topic this week is timely because it is the holiday season. I never post pictures of my family, but that’s what comes to my mind for the topic today. We just had a Christmas get-together last weekend because my relatives were coming from another state that couldn’t get here on Christmas. This is a picture of my niece and my great-nephew! It makes me happy to be around all my nieces, nephews, and great-nephews and nieces!


Happy Holidays to everyone!

This week’s topic is reflections. Because I was working on putting up and decorating my Christmas tree I decided to go with reflections of light in Christmas ornaments. I think the reality is distorted because I am photographing the ornaments so close up; the ornaments look huge.

Colorful Christmas ornaments placed in the center of the tree give a tree with white lights more color because of the way the light reflects off them. It give the decorating depth. I like the blurry look of the inside ornament here…it makes the Santa look more realistic.


Although this photo of my Victorian Christmas ornament is blurry, I like the way the light reflects in the ornament and that you can see the window that the tree is near.


Finally, one of my favorite ornaments is an actual reflection.
