Macro Monday: Ornament

This is probably one of my oldest ornaments.  I have had it about 25 years..I need to research it to find out exactly when they were made.  I believe it is part of a twelve piece set that was often given to newlyweds..but I am not sure.   I think..and I use the word think loosely here that it is a fish.  Check out more macros at Sunday Stills Macro Monday:)

Sunday Stills: Holiday Lights and Decorations

This was a tough challenge for me..not so much the taking of the photos..but choosing the best one!   I do like to photograph Christmas ornaments, the lighting is so important it really sets the mood.  Merry Christmas everyone!  Check out more Holiday Lights and Decorations at Sunday Stills:)

Macro Monday : Poinsettia

There are about one hundred different varieties of Poinsettia, red is still the most popular.   The flowers are actually the tiny clusters in the center, the most colorful part of any poinsettia is it's bracts.  I heard a story a long time ago..that the Poinsettia was a "Ho Hum" kind of plant until Johnny Carsons set designers lined some up along the stage..once everyone saw the plant..they all wanted one.  Check out more macros at Sunday Stills:)

Sunday Stills: Pets

This is a photo of our Border Collie Chance, I took this photo back in November.  Chance is five years old!  The day after Christmas will mark five years since he came to live with  us.  He is ball driven and will herd the ball endlessly if only someone will throw it for him.  He loves all children, he is a very spoiled dog.  He goes everywhere with us, the only time we leave him at home is when it is too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer to be in the vehicle.  He is very intelligent and understands many words. We have been to obedience classes..he can heal off lead..and will do a ten minute stay..I should work with him more..anything is possible with this dog..It is a real pleasure for us to be a part of his family!  Check out more pets over at Sunday Stills:)
