Sunday Stills...Christmas Decorations

I appear to be a bit late, but did not want to miss this Sunday Stills challenge!
I have not been able to get out and view other decorations, so have had to resort to what I see around my house!

This sleeping mouse was an ornament I made when my kids were little...

Skywatch Friday

A winter Holiday fantasy land, the Bavarian village in Leavenworth Washington.

The first picture is during the daytime...
The village lights and night sky change as they prepare for the Holiday lights to be turned on...

And, then after a celebration with singing and dancing and sledding...

The Village lights are turned on section by section.

Ruby headed girl in red!

Ruby Tuesday!
While at my granddaughters 5th grade winter school play, this little cutie pie was just to cute to not get one shot of. I just love her red hair, and her red winter fleece jacket!!!

Macro Monday.. my new Ornament from trip to Leavenworth Washington yesterday.

I am a bit eclectic with my Christmas ornaments... and could not resist this little donkey made out of wood products, while we were in Leavenworth Washington yesterday.
We went over for the "Christmas lighting of the Village" festivities. It was wonderful cold fun with Brea and her family, in this lovely little German Village in Washington State!

Sunday Stills.....Technology

Sunday Stills... Technology

I have a new electric tea/water Kettle, and love it. It changes color as the water heats up...

And also Candles ...
What? You don't think they fit under this Technology challenge?

I have had more then one mishap with candles and my husband prefers I avoid them for fear of the end results!
How cool is this, candles that flicker and smell like vanilla, and even have a timer to turn themselves off after a period of time.
No flame and no fire, for Jan to torch the house with in a forgotten or clumsy moment!

Sunday Stills ...Pets

Milli, a much loved but neurotic Corgi wonderful Manx
Randi, a rescue from Animal Control
And finally my much loved, (and still very missed) little lap dog, Rocky.

For Sunday Stills, 1 Year Anniversary

Pets...I do have a few of them.

These are some of my favorite shots..

Monochrome Weekly

For Monochrome Weekly I choose a shot of a crow I took last week. I work on the third floor of a building , and for the last few days at lunch time we have had lots of crows just hanging out on the trees around our building. This subject (being black already) seemed like good Monochrome material!

Skywatch Friday..Seattle from afar

Skywatch Friday
I have wanted to take these shots for some time, and had to drive to the top of a parking garage near my work, to get the view I wanted. I would of preferred the Olympic MT's behind Seattle to have more snow... you can see the Space Needle to the right though!

Thanks for coming by...oh my!
