Every Little Detail

Today was day 6 of Picture the Holidays and Tracey wanted us to:  Begin this day with eyes wide open to the tiny wonders that are constantly swirling all around you. Even at the most ordinary time of day, while doing the most mundane tasks, little moments of enchantment will reveal themselves. Find some small delight today.

I have a Charlie Brown Christmas tree - yes I got it at CVS to do the photo for our Christmas Cards this year and everyday I see the one red ornament  that came with it it makes me smile - It's all in the detail - makes you stop and see......

My view

Chances are it's chilly outside today, after all winter is coming. Whether you choose to brave the cold and venture outside today or you gaze just out your window, take a few moments to enjoy the view.

So it was chilly today so I looked out the backdoor and saw this one leaf on the mat outside.  Out of all the leaves in the yard this one leaf had blow onto the doormat - this was my view!!!!

Day 4 of Picture the Holidays

We all have at least one magic remedy that no matter what, will give us the perspective that we need. The key is to remember what that is and pull it out when we need it most -
My Key to Happiness is My Photography - put the camera in my hands and I am a very happy girl!!!!!!

Picture the Holidays - Framed

Day 2 of Picture the Holidays is about  looking at things a little differently, today you'll be using a literal frame for your image. You get to decide what goes in your frame today and how you choose to capture it!
So after the week I have had I decided I needed to find the ability to BELIEVE again......

this one is a little more focused on the frame than the Believe rock - I felt it showed me trying to find the ability to believe!!!!

Picture the Holidays started today

Picture the Holidays started today with Tracey Clark - I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Shutter Sisters Snap Happy Hour in NYC.  I have been looking forward to taking this class and being inspired by the others who are also taking the class.   So I posted a photo of my sister and I in our Halloween costumes in probably 1974 or so...... I snapped the photo of the photo of us in a frame cause I am grateful for the memories I had in my childhood..... here's the photo

I really had a great childhood and a great family to share it with.  We were all about family and being together.  I don't get to see the family now as often as I like since I am in NY and they live in SC.... I try to go as often as I can and more since my dad turned 80 this year.   I hold onto those memories of Childhood tightly.
