The Countdown begins...

And what am I doing? Enjoying family, friends and the sights and sounds of Christmas. After all, isn't that what it is all about?


The weekend began listening, or as the principal says "following", the voices of angels at the annual Christmas program. Way too much action to take photos during the performance, so before will have to do. And besides, the grandgirls now consider this photo an annual tradition.
Then yesterday, off to view the visual treats provided by Hallmark Cards in celebration of their 100Th year. A team of talented individuals reproduced thousands of Christmas cards to decorate both Halls Plaza and Halls Crown Center stores with images beyond imagination. Not only were the displays (indoors and out) amazing...watching shoppers walking by without even noticing dresses, shoes, flowers and so many works of art made entirely of cards, left me speechless. This photo of the "Holly Gown" does little to show the true craftsmanship...just imagine if you can.
The back of the dress and trees.

Close up detail on dress.

The world is spinning and time flies but this flower will last forever.
Taking time to enjoy the Season...are you?
