Silver and Red


It is hard to believe that December is half over!
...and now comes the really fun part...


This old postcard is a bit rough...
 but I love the image of Santa in his car and thought you would too!
Perhaps you can fix him up in Photoshop?
I would if I could...but I can't...
...so I won't!
:(


Breathe deep!
It doesn't have to be perfect...

Faith, Hope and Love

Remembering the reason for the season!

Thanks for those word "it doesn't have to be perfect", so many times we try to make things 'perfect', when it is an impossibility, and to be honest, if we step away and take a look at the bigger picture, there is perfection in imperfection! This year I have decided that if it doesn't get done, that's great! Our emphasis is on the reason for the season, and just enjoying being together. That is what it is all about anyway! Merry Christmas! Becky G. in GA

Wise words.....too much stressing around with people everywhere...and here I am,haven´t started yet:/
I guess something in between would be better,but I am sure x-mas will come and be joyful and perfect!!!!!!!! I´ll multitask when I start out *lol*
I am so glad you didn´t do anything with Santa here...he is perfect just the way he is!!!Not everything has to be touched....
And I love the gorgeous silver and red pics as well....beautiful:))))
Have a wonderful x-mas and thanks for the reminder!!!!

It is always a visual feast to visit your beautiul blog. I love those deep reds! I want to thank you for your lovely comment on my last post as blogger wouldn't post it. I'm not sure what's going on, but I seem to be having issues with comments again. Wishing you and your family a beautiful and very Merry Christmas.

Hugs!

I love the red silver combination also. And imperfection has a lot going for it. So much easier to live up to it's expectations.

Carole said...
