It's Beginning to Feel a Bit Like Christmas

Well - hopefully anyway. Have my part done - Christmas Santas (I'm a collector of Santas) all put on the shelves and wreath on the door, tree decorated. I'm trying. Love looking at pine cones against a blue sky.
I love this against the blue background.

Great DoF in this pretty shot.

I like the DoF in this - as others have noted. It works really well to make the cones pop.

Very nice! Good for you on the decorating! Maybe I will work on getting Christmas decorations out tomorrow. The weather has been so nice I hate staying inside.

Lovely detail in the cones.

lucky you to be all decorated. There seems to be more pine cones on trees around here this year. Does that mean a bad winter? Nice shot.

Oh Melanie, this is lovely. I’m glad you put your decorations out, I hope they bring you some sweet memories of Christmases past.

I love how your pine cone pops against the blue background.
Milanie I was thinking of you and hopping your christmas will be happy one, they say the first everything in the first year is difficult.

Love the framing and DOF

@radiogirl Thank you, Kathy, for your warm thoughts. The past few weeks have been rough - keep telling myself just get past the end of December and things will be some easier. 365 has been such a help.

@louannwarren Thank you, Lou Ann, for your caring. I love the memories but have a hard time with the tears but often try to keep a smile with the tears if that makes sense. You wonderful 365 folks have been lifesavers for me.

Good for you, decorating and enjoying the Christmas spirit as best you can. I'm a Santa collector, too...surely your collection will add some happiness to your days. I love the pretty blue sky...super way to shoot these beautiful pinecones. Hoping the peace and promise of the season comforts you, Milanie.
