I finally cleared the pumpkins and pansies off the front porch yesterday...and set up a more festive, seasonal look. The red pot has live (for awhile anyway) greens, a tree tip and pine boughs. I added the lighted branches (bought those 2 years ago and never used them, knew they would come in handy sooner or later) and hung a few small Christmas ornaments, I'm happy. Turned on the spotlight and now all we need is a little snow. And speaking of snow...Chicago just broke another weather record...the longest stretch without measurable snow 200+ days. These are the kind of records I'm not crazy about. If I didn't know any better I would think I was back in Dallas...where the snow is rare and the summers are crazy hot, just like Chicago's last summer.
Do you have a white board in your stash of photography stuff? It is amazing how much I use this magical $5.98 piece of foam core all the time...especially during this season of bright colors.
And then when you add a little digital magic it becomes a colorful Christmas Card.
Sharing with Sweet Shot Tuesday...
Hope your days continue to be merry & bright!!
