Fresh Air

The prompt for Picture the Holidays today was "a breath of fresh air". Everything is still covered in snow and it's freezing - so the air is really, really fresh... Apart from the fact that I'm made more for summer temperatures it's absolutely lovely.

Have a good start into the last week of 2010!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

After a lot of rain and unseasonably high temperatures during the last few days it has started snowing again yesterday and we are now enjoying a white Christmas!

Visit the Mortal Muses to admire all sorts of ornaments or maybe even share your own favourite!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you are having a good time!

Okay, so I admit it... I bought these sweets solely and explicitly for my photo shoot today...! Such a good excuse, isn't it? The moment I read the Mortal Muses' prompt for today I knew I was doomed...!

Have a sweet Monday!

Textures by Kim Klassen

Today I planned on participating at Macro Friday with a macro shot of the cookies I was baking. All cookies packed away I wanted to upload my photos when I noticed that the memory card was still sitting in my card reader and not in my camera... So much for the cookies!

Considering my options I decided to take up the Mortal Muses' Holidays prompt which today is "Bells". I'm looking forward to seeing all the other bells at the Mortal Muses and maybe even a cookie at Blogging From Bolivia...!

Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Christmas Lights

Sometimes I think that those Christmas lights are here to make up for the short days, to give us something to enjoy during the long nights. For more light enjoyment hop over to the Mortal Muses to see all of today's entries.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

The wonderful Mortal Muses are doing a daily Holiday prompt and today's word is "giving". To me the most important aspect of giving is, that it comes from the heart. I also associate "giving" with warmth and so I chose to share this warm glow of a candle light to represent the prompt.

Have a wonderful day everyone and do have a look at all the entries!

Christmas Cards

I have the feeling that each day goes by even faster than the one before. There is such a lot to do and I'm so far behind with my Christmas preparations this year. I haven't even started with writing my Christmas cards! Have you?

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Photo of the Day

The last days of freezing and thawing and raining and snowing have left a very rough icy surface on the lake and this leaf is caught just beneath that last layer of ice. Some more leaves are farther below and account for the dark and brownish spots in the photo. Isn't nature just fascinating?

Have a wonderful Monday!

Christmas Colours

I'm not so much the gold person when it comes to jewellery, but for Christmas it's almost a must! This year, I absolutely love the combination of gold, cream and white tones. There are also some purple/silver decorations around that are simply adorable.

What are your favourite colour schemes this year? Just hop over to A Common Thread and share your favourites - we'd love to see and read about it!

This is also my entry for Macro Friday at Blogging From Bolivia - do have a look there, too, the macros are always so amazing!

Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Signs and Messages

Today's prompt for Picture the Holidays was to have an open eye for signs and messages around us.

On my way home from work I took the time to look around, even made a little detour to a bookstore (just to be on the safe side and really find something written there for me...) and strangely enough, there were a lot of messages everywhere.

After yesterday's post - and thank you all for your responses, I'm so relieved not to be alone! - I decided on the above. I think I could do with both at the moment: relaxing and uplifting...!

I wish you an uplifting or relaxing Thursday - whatever is best for you!

Creative Exchange

I know, I'm a bit late for it, but I wanted to participate at Lisa's Creative Exchange. This is a macro shot of a star made of glass, and as you can see I was playing around with Kim Klassen's textures again.

I don't feel so very creative at the moment and it's really difficult for me to focus. Is it just me or are you also having difficulties to get everything done and still have time for your creative projects?

I wish you a creative Wednesday!

Candle Time

It's so cold outside and it has been raining for hours on end! Time for candles - I love to snuggle up on my sofa wrapped in a cosy blanket, enjoying the warm glow of the candles.

I hope you have a good start into the week with something to keep you warm and well!

The two days of absence here were not planned, but sometimes you don't have much choice and can't always do what you'd like to do...

Today, I just pop in to share this heart with you - it's a little "Thank you" for your lovely comments, and also my entry for Macro Friday at Blogging from Bolivia. Do have a look at all the entries, it's always so amazing!

I'm signing off for the weekend and hope to be back on Monday catching up with all your blogs and comments. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
