Christmas Shadows

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE WEEK AGAIN. The last few days have been pretty full on and we finally finished the Christmas decorations this afternoon just hours before our guests arrived for dinner.

I hurriedly festooned our Renaissance style bust ...


... and arranged a vase of lisianthus fresh from the markets.



If you go to Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday at http://www.heyharriet.blogspot.com/, you will be amazed by some of the most beautiful shots.

I really enjoy the floral arrangement. The shadows add a depth to the vase that wasn't there prior. The necklace seems even more impressive. Each is beautiful as they are, the shadows giving a richer appearance. Artistic shadows and captures!

I think I need your help with my Christmas decorations. Mine look takcy in comparison to your stylish touches! Love that first photo. What a lovely idea! Oh and nothing beats fresh flowers from the markets. Well, maybe fresh flowers from the garden but that counts me out. Maybe I could somehow pretty up some weeds :)
