'Tis the Season!

I had a wonderful weekend Christmas shopping with my friend Loraine and tree shopping with my hubby!
While visiting the first Christmas tree lot, my bullshit meter was going off the charts as the sales guy tried to rope us into a bigger tree by telling us the tree we picked out originally was actually spray painted with toxic chemicals that would kill my cats if they ate it. Say what?? Dude, I may be blonde but I ain't stupid! So onward we went to the next lot and found a most beautiful tree, smelling so freshly of forest pine.

The tree is now up, scenting the whole house with the smell of winter and Christmas; a few gifts have been wrapped, and some cute Christmas costume accessories were purchased. I'm sure they will show up in a couple of self portraits between now and Christmas Eve! Until then, I hope you all are enjoying the season, getting into the spirit and spreading that Christmas magic to all those around you! I took all these images this weekend while out shopping. I've decided to go BIG on my blog...I like the look! What do you all think? Now, I just need to design a new blog header for 2011. :)

Christmas Magic...yes, please!

Christmas Ornament Champagne. Try it, it's delicious. :)

Lunch at Brio Tuscan Grill

Reflections of Sephora...we got yelled at for taking this picture. Whatever! Scrooges! I hope the sales clerk gets coal in her stocking from Santa!

I loved your post, the "BIG" suits it well. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the ambience of the season with all of the glitter,sparkle and twinkling lights.
I am sure Santa has put that mean clerk on his naughty list. You keep up the great photos and bah humbug to those not in the spirit.

Thank you! It's a great time for photography with all the prettiness hung everywhere! And, since I'm not traveling this year, there is less stress and more time to play! Yay! :)
