The Week Before Christmas for Mosaic Monday




It is rainy and dark here today.  I have had to have all the lights on in the house to see.   It is hard to believe that Christmas will be here next week by looking outside but that could change.  I finished up all the wrapping yesterday and the little tree looks quite festive now with the packages underneath.   My mosaic today is a few of the photos I took through the week and played around with in Lightroom and Photoshop. The cute little ribbon was from the Coffeeshop Blog.

I will be joining Mosaic Monday with Mary at DearLittleRedHouse.    Have a great week.

It was dull and dreary here too, and I also had the tree lights and other lights on I sat by the fire for awhile and did some crochet and watched the curling finals.
The day will be here before we know it. We had a family gathering Saturday night and the little ones are so excited.
Sure hope we have some snow next week.
What a beautiful mosaic. I love playing with holiday photos! Enjoy your week!
We have bright sunshine here in Florida. I'm in a gray mood though because of last week's events. Thank you for brightening up my goes on.

The darkness seems to intensify each day now. Soon, the light will return. It's windy and rainy here tonight. Candles and soft light are very cozy.

The clouds and rain make it dark here too. We walked in the woods this afternoon and it was nearly dark at 2 pm.
I love the heart of the flower - gorgeous!

It is soooo dark. Dark when I go into work and dark when I come out. I guess I will get my "sunshine" from my Christmas lights.
I really like the close up of the poinsettia. Those little buds are the actual flowers aren't they? Not the red leaves like everyone thinks.

These are really the dark days before Christmas. Dark in the morning and early in the afternoon. It seems like we haven't seen the sun for ages. Merry Christmas.
I agree, it has been so dark and dreary and I need the sunshine, for I get very sad and we have had some difficult past 2 weeks and still some healing to come. I love your mosaic, really so lovely and cheerful~

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
