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.
