Looking a bit more like Christmas

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

The kids did a super job, and I am quite taken with the windows ...they look like gift-wrapped boxes!

Wow, thanks everyone for the great comments!

This tree is at work. I don't do one at home. as I've got this one, and BBQ's always GAWJUS tree. Plus, a tree at my place is just one big cat toy ;)

Ron, thanks for the tip. I'll try upping the ISO and using a tripod or other stabilising influence to minimise blurr.

All our mirrors are done in the "parcel" theme, as are the windows of the æsthetics booth.

In keeping with the Christmas Spirit, I always watch this video, and related ones. Love this orchestra, love the lights!

Here's one from tonight, with the ISO upped to 400 as per Ron's recommendation.

Glad it helped. I took the liberty to bring out a little more detail in your pic. Click to enlarge.
