Count Down to Christmas

December 15 collage 2

The Twelve days of Christmas minus one.  I made a collage or mosaic if you will of some of the items on the fireplace mantle.  I couldn’t resist putting a photo of the Christmas card from our youngest son and his family.  Our precious granddaughter is a huge delight to us.  We cherish her presence in our family.

I am participating in Mosaic Monday, the only constant meme that I began when I started blogging over three years ago.

I am off to do some shoveling.  We have had another snowfall. Cross your fingers I get the snow blower going!!!





Your granddaughter is sweet Val. I hope you got the blower going, there's a lot of snow out there!
Gorgeous Val, your granddaughter looks adorable in the shot. Hope the snowblower started for you. Take care. Jen

Your granddaughter is adorable, Valerie!
We got just a bit over a foot of snow last night, and they say there's,more to come over the next 3 days, but at least it is not nearly as cold as it was last week.

Happy Sunday to you!

What a sweet granddaughter with her parents! I like how you created the mosaic with bits on your mantle … and stay safe in all that snow! It's amazing the snow already this year (not here). Have a good week.

beautiful images Valarie. Mosaic Monday for me too was the first meme that I ever participated in. It's a wonderful way to start the week.
Stay warm and have a wonderful week and lead up to Christmas. This year has flown by so fast.

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…
