Tis Friday & thanks again to Keli for hosting this fun event.

I'm sharing a bit of my Christmas decor..but I'll be going

I  have always loved this picture. When Rich's mom passed away
I was lucky to be the one who now owns it!!!
It is a WONDERFUL manger picture, no glass, rustic wood frame
and  just the spirit of Christmas

Just a Wee Bit of Snow

& it called me to get out & get a few pics.
I tried to make the un~shuttered and not
yet painted shutters invisible...
so here they are..

This shrub is always full of birds , waiting for a turn to eat 
at the feeders..lots more than you can see here.

That guy on the left is a Tufted Titmouse, getting some peanuts..I was hoping 
to get the lil Black Cap Chickadee, but I see he flew off!!

My green Lamb's Ear, covered with a dusting of
 Christmas like snow~the first of the Season

I love Christmas time!!

Isn't he SWEET??
I just love him..He was on top of our Great Room window.
and then I found him another day down the sunroom.
We had to put Hannah in ..(our dog).. just to be sure
