Last Year's Winter Favorite



A few people are posting their Christmas card pictures. Here's mine! I took this picture last year after a hoar frost and snowfall. It was on my friend/neighbors light post. I thought it was so pretty. I'll be using it this year on a few homemade Christmas cards that I'll be sending.

You take the best pictures, Robin. That picture so reminds me of my Kentucky boyhood, lol. Going outside and hearing your nose go "click" as the nostrils freeze. I love the Springs and Falls, but in between can be downright painful.

Thanks For 2 Day said...

Hey Robin! Yes, it is Christmasy! My mom used to put red bells like that outside when I was little. I had them for a while as an adult...but they were so old, they finally fell apart. That's thoughtful of you to make cards, too. You must be a special person and a good friend to many:) Jan/ThanksFor2Day

So lovely, Robin. I'm hoping that mockingbird will pay another visit to your nest. I can't wait to see the photo - your photography is always stunning. I pray that your spirits have been lifted, dear friend.

Hi Robin, that will make a lovely card that will cause oohs and aaahs from the recipients. The mix of evergreens dusted with the frost is exquisite.

Dear Robin,
Lovely Holiday card!
I have been asked to be part of a card line that is just starting. Two of my photographs are part of the Holiday line. The cards have done so well that they are in a second printing. I am over the moon!
This photograph is just perfect for a Christmas card!
Looking forward to hearing about how you like your new camera.
Being a photographer is so fun!
Sherry
