Christmas Time

I was sitting in my front room sipping a glass of wine the other evening whilst enjoying the lights on the Christmas tree  and I thought...I wonder if this would look as pretty in a picture as it does  in real life. So I got up, got my camera and took these photos.

 In my opinion, Christmas trees are in their full glory at night with all the light reflecting on the ornaments.

I decorated this tree in pink and clear balls, an extravagant, crunchy, crystal garland and pale cranberry colored ribbon. The tree combined with the clock tells me that it  really is ~ Christmas time. 

Lights, glitter, and a bit of glitz...

...yes, it really is that time of year.

Thank you for visiting and...

A Very Merry Christmas to you!
