Christmas holds so much magic, doesn't it? And, some of my utmost pieces of magic can be found in ornaments, expecially those handmade by my now grown children. From the toliet paper tube fastened into a candle or a Santa, to a tissue paper covered bird house, I love them all.
A few nights ago, I lost myself in another bit of magic - Photoshop Elements. I happily clicked on various filters and settings, just to see what I could do, just to play. This one seems so soft and dreamy, almost like a Monet painting.
Such a different look, and I enjoy it just as much! The aim, of course, is not to depend on Photoshop for a good shot, but the play time is simply magical!
Over here, you'll find many muses "glowing." I just spent several delightful minutes wandering through blogs, all "a glow." Just what my heart needed!
I had great fun wandering through past December photos, and have to admit that these few are favorites.
We'd found an old oblong sort of mirror in an antique shop and placed it along our table. We added our every growing collection of old blue Bell canning jars, some blue capacitators, some "snow," and some "crystals."
Filled with candles, they made magic!
I've learned a lot since I shot these, coming a long way. So, while not my "best," definitely some of my favorites!
Over at Mortal Muses, many muses can be found musing together!
Don't these two just look as if they belong together? Mama here (my lovely daughter, Kara) celebrated a birthday yesterday. She and Alex, who celebrates his 1st birthday next month, are quite the pair. He loves his mama, and she loves him right back. Daddy loves them both.
If you get a chance, go visit the muses and enjoy some lovely pictures. They're guaranteed to make you smile!
