Random Acts of Living

Oh! Tannenbaum

Remember my little tree all alone in the attic? Well, I got the table cleared off in the living room and brought it down to set in it's place of honor in front of the living room window. I had taken a couple of shots with the flash but for some reason they didn't focus at all. I'll take a couple more tomorrow when the living room isn't so dark. I've been really busy the past couple of days and haven't been on the computer much. I'm sure it's much the same with most of you out there also. Christmas is only a few days away and everyone is getting their last minute shopping done, food prepared and travels made. I've still got presents to wrap, but the purchases have all been made, I'm through shopping for this year. Our family will gather at my daughter's on Christmas Eve as that she is scheduled to work on Christmas Day. In case I don't get any other posts up before then...
May Everyone be Blessed with Love and Joy during this Christmas Season!

Hi! To tell you the truth, I wouldn't change a thing. I love the soft focus. It's like a clip out of a animated Walt Disney Christmas movie. It does indeed have a magicial look to it.

I had a look at the attic link. It's a wonder the ceiling didn't cave in.

I wish you, your family and readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All the best!
PS the deleted comment was me. I had a spelling mistake.

Hiya, Peter! It IS a rather magical looking little tree. And my attic really isn't as bad as it looks. All the boxes in the one end of the attic are pretty much empty. They're boxes from products I've purchased and may need to pack them back in them if they are defective. Some boxes are just saved to be used for shipping. So there's not near as much weight as there seems. Plus I had pulled all the boxes out and tossed them around looking for something that I'd stored back behind them. It's also a sturdy old house, built before they started using all the pressed woods and such. The frame's in great shape, it's just all the lathe and plaster walls the need replacing. : )

Moonshadow -- I have to agree with Peter. This shot is just wonderful. There's just something about your tree that I love! It's like from another time and place. Does that makes sense?

Hmmm.... maybe it's the white lights that make it look like candles rather than string lights. Or that the tree is not "perfect", branches sticking out here and there. And it's tall and skinny instead so triangular. Just simply decorated.

Thanks for stopping by, Kathy! Hope you're having a Wonderful Holiday!
