Thanks Mary for this beautiful meme. Thanks also for mentioning Hannukah today. It is very kind and considerate of you.

Robin said...

What a beautiful gazebo, the decorations look so festive, and your poinsettia is a lovely rich shade of red too.

Happy holidays to all celebrating this week, and thank you for the link to my Hannukah post Mary.

Catherine said...

The snowy bandstand decorated with Red stuff is fantastic! All the spirit of the holidays in it.

I knew you would choose Originale!
Yes you are, and funny.

Carletta said...

Hi Mary,
What a quaint gazebo - makes me wish I had decorated mine just a little bit more.
Love the poinsettia with the filter treatment. You do the most talented things. I'm thinking if Santa brings me that new camera he might also need to bring new software. :)
I'm out of the blogosphere for a week or so to go visiting so let me wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday with many Blessings for the New Year!

Tere {Blessings in Life} said...

Happy holidays to everyone! Two more days to go... Have a merry, blissful and peaceful Christmas!

Hildegarde said...

Happy holidays to you too ! (btw : happy holidays is an expression we do not yet use so much in Flanders, here Merry Christmas can be used freely without much religious connotations, you can say it to everybody, the meaning is peace and happiness, I guess)

I made it to Ruby Tuesday today. I've been quite busy elsewhere.

Oh, I love that gazebo! And I wish I knew how to photograph red flowers like that. My shots always turn out pinker than the real thing.

Happy holidays to you, and to all!

Hi Mary,
Love the gazebo shot. Looks similar to one we have here that I just photographed for our paper's blog.

The poinsettia photo is lovely too.

Thanks for this meme, as always, and I hope you and yours have a peaceful and happy Christmas.

(I had to correct the link to my post. woops)

Cherie said...

Love the gazebo shot. So pretty with the snow. Makes the red bows pop! :) Merry Christmas!

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

Thank you for the creative impulse you have fostered in so many with your intriguing meme. Much joyfullness in the year to come.

My preference is the first shot. It's a real slice of holiday life, with the Rubiness adding a sublime enhancement.

crazy working mom said...

Beautiful! I didn't play this week, I'm just now getting around to playing catch up since my lap top has been out of commission. Wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas. I will catch up with RT next week. :D

Eve said...

I love the gazebo and the poinsettias. They all say Christmas so loudly.

Terry said...

Dear Mary T....Here I am Johnny come lately but at least I finished earlier than I did last week
I hope that you don't mind that I swiped your picture!
I have to now peel twenty pounds of potatoes because our whole family will be gathering at Betty and John's for Christmas eve and I have to make scalloped potatoes.
Have a merry Christmas dear new friend...Love Terry

Desert Songbird said...

Not participating this week, but I love the gazebo photo. I love how the ribbons POP with all that white around.

The Cunning Runt said...

Thanks for the loveliness, Mary.

That gazebo is so cleanly composed, and so primary! And I love what you did in Photoshop - I'm gonna have to get that one of these days when I win the Lottery (which I don't play!) It looks wicked useful, and my photos need some serious help!
