To take us lands away." Emily Dickinson
Christmas is over around here, but I still enjoyed your lovely photos!
Such vivid reds and greens! Love it!
It is nicely decorated and the dessert looks great. Certainly the bon bons.Greetings,Filip
Thank you for helping us remember that the 12 Days of Christmas START on December 25th....not END. We always have a "little Christmas" to celebrate the end of the season - it's wonderful because we can keep eating those cookies til then. After that they go into the freezer to be brought out small baggie by small baggie on sunday afternoons.Blessings...
Gorgeous! I'm still undecking my halls over here.
I put all that work into lights and tree and decorations I am out to get the most out of it!! All 12 Days, until the Feast of the Epiphany.I tell ya, if stores could get Americans to give gifts on the Epiphany as they do in some culture, we would be still celebrating
Hi Caite, I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I love the shot of Longwood Gardens? And the cake and truffles look delicious. Wonderful photos. I wish you all the best in 2012. Happy New Year!
You guys know how to serve up a yummy Christmas Eve!
So many goodies, Many people don't realize that Christmas day is just the first day of Christmas and that there are 3 more to go from today. Happy 9th day of Christmas.
Beautiful Christmas! And such delicious desserts, that cake is so pretty. Happy New Year!
Oh, just gorgeous -- all of them.
Yes, Christmas is not over yet. Keep it alive until it's traditional end at the Epiphany and , by the way, the Epiphany is the setting for one of the greatest short stories in English, James Joyces' "The Dead" which is set at an upper middle class Epiphany dinner party in Dublin around 1900. It's one of Joyce's most accessible works and a powerful meditation on the relationship between the living and the dead and a life lived without deep emotion risk or commitment.
Gorgeous!! You had a lovely and elegant and delicious Christmas from what I can tell!
Great series of shots.Happy New Year!
Wow, that is so beautiful. Looks like something you see in a movie.
Such lovely decorations for the holidays! I will enjoy looking at these long after Christmas.
Beautiful decorations and delicious looking food too!Hope you had a wonderful holiday Caite.-----------------------------------My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography on etsy and Society6 and bring home something beautiful today!
These are absolutely beautiful! So glad that you had such a great time!
in response to Mickey up above..as usual you are right. except that "The Dead" is Joyce's only accessible work. A lovely, lonely, sad Christmas story..
The holidays are over around here, but I love sharing some of yours. Everything looks warm and inviting.Happy new year.
Your sister-in-law certainly knows how to set an elegant and inviting table. All your photos are so lovely. I'm looking forward to another year of beautiful photos from you.
(...actually, it is largely the Bro's work...he is very particular)
beautiful decorations. glad you had a great blast.
that cake is gorgeous .. and the table at the Bro & SIL so lovely ..
Your Christmas cake is amazing, and your shots are all so heartwarming! It's nice to see a few more holiday snapshots. Everything is always so depressing when Christmas is done.
Longwood Gardens look beautiful! I'm in need of bright colors and growing things right now. And what a lovely Chistmas Eve table.
The gardens are beautiful. Love the vibrant colors.The table setting looks quite inviting, too.
