Photography and Bokeh

 I have been playing with the Christmas lights and my camera.  Still not 100% happy with how these turned out, but they are kinda cute.  I really want to make the little mask that makes shaped bokeh, but I've tried it in the past and it didn't work, but I think I did something wrong.  I will try again soon.






I love this one and how the lights are all sparkly.  Wonder how I got that to happen.  LOL!  Too bad it wasn't my amazing photography skills and more of a fluke.   The best part, this snowman is really only about 10 inches tall!

Deck the Halls! Mantle for Christmas

Just thought I would share my Christmas decor so far.  I have more to take pictures of, but these are my favorites so far!  I love Christmas!!!

This table is surrounded by things from days gone by.  A silverware set from my husband's grand parents, suitcases from my grandparents, ornaments from my grandma.  Even the little box from the ornaments is on display.  There is also a egg timer that was my grandparents'.  There is one thing missing from this picture.  I will have to post it separately because I took the picture before I made it.


Here it is!  My friend Dina Patina replaced the knobs on her door and gave me her old patina'd ones.  I love them and the skelaton key, so I glued it to a picture frame and tied the key on with a ribbon.  It fits nicely on my table with my vintage Christmas vignette.

Upstate NY Fall 2012

For those of you who live where there is no Fall. I feel for you.  I lived there for a long time too.  Now I really appreciate Autumn leaves!

Artisian Bread Link

I am not sure if my followers on this blog like to bake, but I have posted THIS bread on my Foodie blog. It is so easy to make and totally do-able for the first time bread baker!  Click on either picture and it will take you over there.

Our Summer Vacation

 We just came back from a wonderfully, relaxing vacation!  Any guesses as to where we went and how we got there?  Check out the pictures below and see if you can guess.  No answers from my friends who already know!  :-P  I was playing with filters on some of these pictures, so there are a few that are the same, just different coloring.
